New Zealand’s own Leonard Cohen tribute band Imperfect Offering is presenting a commemorative concert for one night only in Auckland on Sunday 28 October 2018. The band was formed in 2015 from established rock, jazz and classical musicians in a nine-piece line-up including violin and even balalaika. They have had standing ovations and sold-out houses in a tour of the North Island started last year.  Imperfect Offering has appeared on TVNZ News on the event of Cohen’s death in November 2016 and was selected to be represented on the official Leonard Cohen website Cohencentric.  Imperfect Offering have appeared at Q Theatre Auckland, Ascension Wine Estate Matakana, Tauranga, Hamilton and Century Theatre Napier. Imperfect Offering presents the best of Cohen’s music including the great “Hallelujah”, “Suzanne”, “Chelsea Hotel”, “The Future”, “Bird on the Wire” and songs from Cohen's extraordinary last album You Want it Darker. The name Imperfect Offering is inspired by Cohen’s lyric in ‘Anthem’

"Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That’s how the light gets in”.



ALSO PERFORMING IN ST ANDREWS on the TERRACE, WELLINGTON on SATURDAY 3 NOVEMBER at 7:30pm bookings: https://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2018/the-music-of-leonard-cohen-commemorati...
