Happy birthday, Bob Dylan and thank you for everything. To celebrate the music of the most important songwriter of the 20th and 21st century, swiss national television SRF hosted a birthday party at Zurich’s coolest music venue, El Lokal. Hank had the pleasure of acting as musical director with an amazing band: Tom Etter on guitar, Hendrix Ackle on piano and organ, Thomy Jordi on bass and Simon Baumann on drums. Taking turns at the microphone were the nation’s finest: Stephan Eicher, Toni Vescoli, Polo Hofer, Shirley Grimes, Evelinn Trouble, Bruno Amstad, Marc Sway, Erika Stucky & Jon Sass, The Weyers and Lea Lu.
