The muse, guiding us through the night, is America’s drinking poet, Charles Bukowski: “Getting drunk was good. I decided that I would always like getting drunk. It took away the obvious and maybe if you could get away from the obvious often enough, you wouldn't become obvious yourself."
A one-man show by Bremner that celebrates inebriation, intemperance and revelry, and the importance of diverse communities finding each other over a drink. With songs and stories from Tom Waits, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Sinatra and Rihanna and Charles Bukowski. This is a celebration of booze, bars and cocktails—and all the wonderful, messy, beautiful things that start in bars.
A New Orleans local, Bremner has performed on three continents in theatres, jazz clubs and cabarets. He loves songs that tell a story. His eclectic and versatile recording career explores everything from the jazz classics of Gershwin and Rodgers and Hammerstein, pop ballads by Joni Mitchell and the Talking Heads, the French Chanson of Brel and Piaf, and the 1930's classics by Kurt Weill.

Britain’s Sunday Times said: “Outstanding singing. It was sleazy. It was stirring. It was utterly memorable.”
