Hollywood Meets Nashville as Jane Bach, Sandra Piller, Kelly Fitzgerald and Joey Sykes Perform a Songwriter’s Round at Genghis Cohen
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (MuseWire) — The intimate setting of Hollywood’s Genghis Cohen is an ideal place to enjoy the lyrics and melodies of terrific songs and this will be especially true on Tuesday night, July 24, as the club hosts a Nashville-style songwriter’s round. This special event will feature Shady Hill Records artists Jane Bach and Sandra Piller (www.shadyhillrecords.com) as they appear with noted performers Kelly Fitzgerald and Joey Sykes.
Leading the evening will be Jane Bach, well-known for writing one of Reba McEntire’s biggest hit songs as well as penning hits for Jo Dee Messina, Ray Price and others. A frequent performer at writer’s rounds in cities around the country, Bach will be the host as well as one of the singers. “A writer’s round program is a great way to get up close and personal with the writers and their material,” Bach notes.
“This will be an evening where we celebrate the joy of songs,” says Piller, who will be performing numbers from her latest full album, “Days Like These,” and her new 6-song EP, “Love Goes On” which is dedicated to her late husband, Michael.
Appearing with Piller and Bach will be singer-songwriter Kelly Fitzgerald and Joey Sykes. Fitzgerald has toured all over the world as a solo and ensemble performer, sharing the stage with artists such as Shelby Lynne, Nanci Griffith, Vonda Shepard, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, the Gin Blossoms and many others. Sykes was in Meredith Brooks’ band and as a solo artist has shared the stage with Don Henley, Bryan Adams, and John Mellencamp.
Bach is a strong supporter of the Nashville songwriter-in-the-round format. “There’s nothing quite like it,” she states. “And you never know when you’ll be hearing a song that will become the next big hit,” Bach adds. The Genghis Cohen event will follow the classic format of the round, where each songwriter plays one of their songs, followed by the next writer, and the next, and so on. They can join in with each other, add harmonies, contribute a guitar riff, perform a little percussion, or just listen along with the audience.
Genghis Cohen is located at 740 N. Fairfax Ave., Hollywood, CA 90046. Phone: (323) 653-0640. The club is just North of Melrose Blvd. and street parking is available. There is an $8 dollar cover. Showtime is 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. There is a full bar and restaurant.
