Jan Kudelka performs her third annual Janis Joplin’s Birthday Bash at the Tranzac Club on January 18 at 8:30pm.
Kudelka is backed by her JanisWorld band: David Gray on guitar, Tyler Wagler on bass, Michelle Willis on keyboards, and Martin Worthy on drums.
Known for her powerful voice and mesmerizing presence, Kudelka will perform 18 songs from the Joplin music catalogue. Piece of My Heart, I Need a Man To Love, Cry Baby, Ball and Chain, Me and Bobby McGee, and Mercedes Benz are just a few of the soulful blues rock songs Kudelka brings to the stage.
Kudelka’s career spans four decades on and off the stage. In 2001, she created and performed a multimedia, one-woman play-in-concert entitled Janis/Janus. She performed it throughout 2001-2007, garnering rave reviews and sold out venues in a 35-date British Columbia tour.
Janis Joplin’s Birthday Bash is the offspring of that critically acclaimed play, adapted to a concert setting by veteran theatre actor Maggie Huculak. Janis Joplin’s Birthday Bash is produced by Maggie Huculak and Jan Kudelka.
