Guided by the drunken muse of poet Charles Bukowski, Bremner celebrates inebriation, revelry and community. With songs from Tom Waits, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Sinatra and maybe even Rihanna, this cabaret concert honours the fun, heartbreak and magic of a night out at the bar.
Bremner is thrilled to be back at the Winnipeg Fringe!
“He will have you close to tears one moment and laughing the next – an absolute joy to watch.” – New Orleans Defender Magazine
“Sleazy. Stirring. Utterly memorable.” – The Sunday Times, UK
An enjoyable show, but I confess I must call “Bullshit!”
The program specifically states “songs from…, Screaming Jay Hawkins…”
We got to hear a funny and true story about Screaming Jay Hawkins and I Put a Spell on You, but Bremner didn’t actually sing it! He specifically said that he didn’t want to try and put his own spin on such a masterpiece. I get it, but… false advertising man!
Other than that, a lovely night out at the Fringe with a New Orleans flavor.
