AN EVENING WITH JOSHUA BATTEN - RECAP

At 7:30PM on Thursday, September 19th, I walked onto the stage at the David Williamson Theatre to a full house of friends and family members, and kicked off a two-hour plus show of music, featuring acoustic and electric renditions of songs from both Searching For Answers and The City Within, as well as covers of "June" by Spock's Beard and "Something" by The Beatles.  

This was my first time putting together a full evening of my music in a seated theatre to an attentive paying audience, and the energy in the room kept the audience and the band on the same emotional wavelength from start to finish!  

Thank you so much to everyone who purchased tickets - it’s incredibly moving to know that my songs resonate so much with people that they’re willing to come out on a weeknight to hear them played live! 

A huge thank you needs to go to my bandmates - Peter Lichoudaris on Guitar, Aidan Maizels on Bass and Shane McMahon on Drums, as well as our special guests MJ Jeffrey on BVs, Andreas Mikulčić on Keys, Alex Ristovski on Sax, and Sean O'Sullivan on Guitar. Further thanks to Jason Rosewarne and Renée Garling for their fantastic foyer displays, and to the crew members - FoH sound engineer Julian Abrahams, stage manager/guitar tech Gareth Baker, makeup artist Jessica Isgro, lighting team Hiroko Yamauchi and Emmie Turner, and my entire family who made up the front of house team. Finally, thanks to Robert Hails and Craig Vanson for allowing us to use the David Williamson Theatre for the first of hopefully many shows in support of The City Within
