This idea is to bring together some of the best musicians in the community to play songs that are a tribute to one of the great music stars of our time. It would be a bonus if the music star actually had some kind of connection to the community but that is not a necessary ingredient. For example, a group of Vancouver musicians recently got together to play a repertoire of David Bowie songs. Each artist sang two of Bowie’s songs and interpreted them in their own musical style. The benefit of this event is that it showcases the impressive local talent that already exists in the community and attracts a good audience who are keen to hear the music of a popular artist who songs the recognize and enjoy.
This project could be funded through the advance purchase of ticket sales.
