PERFORMANCE CURRENTLY PROCEEDING AS PLANNED
A Ten Tonne Sparrow production
LOVE SONG DEDICATIONS (WITHOUT RICHARD MERCER)
Created and Performed by Tom Hogan and Bonnie Leigh-Dodds
In 2013, after 17 years of being on air, late night radio legend, Richard Mercer, left his final Love Song Dedication. Now, two brave friends attempt to fill the void that ‘The Love God’ left behind.
Join Bonnie and Tom on their quest to find the perfect love song. After listening to literally thousands of dedications this hilarious duo are neck deep in the challenge. They seriously need your help. It’s going to take all night! Actually, only about 70 minutes. You’ll laugh, you might cry. And your heart will soar (secretly) at all those half-forgotten songs you’re ashamed to know the lyrics to.
Part comedy show and part performance, the critically acclaimed and utterly charming Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) will take you on a joyous ride through contemporary politics, philosophy and wicked dance moves, one pop song at a time. In a world of post-truths, pandemics, ironic memes and anti-social media, this highly intelligent and warm-hearted show is the ultimate therapeutic experience. Irony will be truly dead, and only one question will hang in the air: “What is love? (…Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more...)''

Come along to The Ultimate Song Structure Showdown
Do you ever notice the structure of a song while you're listening to it? You should! Paying attention to structure can crack open a song for you, and you'll come to love some of the hidden mechanisms of what makes a song or an artist stand out from the rest. It can also just as easily break them. This workshop is a joyful analytical look at the most common and most surprising song structures in music history. Come and learn why they work so well, steal some ideas for yourself, and you'll never listen to these songs the same way again!
Featuring the music of Justin Bieber, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and more.
