The Smithereens with Marshall Crenshaw @ Greenwich Odeum

The Smithereens with Marshall Crenshaw @ Greenwich Odeum

When Pat DiNizio passed away on December 12, 2017, the future of The Smithereens was suddenly thrown into doubt. Thankfully, the band has decided to continue motoring on with shows here and there. Fellow 80s rock legend Marshall Crenshaw is on hand as special guest vocalist alongside Jim Babjak, Dennis Diken, and Mike Mesaros.

Crenshaw was one of many artists to take place in the tribute “Time and Time Again: A Celebration of the Life of Pat DiNizio” concert, which took place at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank on January 13. He played with the band on tracks like “Even If I Never Get Back Home”, “Strangers When We Meet”, and a cover of Budd Holly’s “Well, All Right.” His own career includes such classic radio hits as “Someday, Someway” and “Whenever You’re On My Mind.”

The Smithereens may not have been the biggest band to ever come out of New Jersey, but they were arguably one of the best representations of a Jersey band, combining a Jersey rock and roll vibe with a Beatlesque sound.

Tickets to this event include an additional $5 Historic Restoration Fee which assists in restorations and repairs of the Greenwich Odeum. When purchasing tickets online, an additional $2 convenience fee per transaction will be applied. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra @ Greenwich Odeum

The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

In Big Band history, Tommy Dorsey’s Orchestra is recognized as one of the best all-around dance bands. It could swing with the best of them, and no other band could come close to Tommy’s when it came to playing ballads. Tommy Dorsey, “The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing,” was a master at creating warm, sentimental, and always musical moods – at superb dancing and listening tempos. Tommy sustained these moods through the arrangements of Paul Weston, Axel Stordahl, and Sy Oliver, and showcased singers who could project them brilliantly.
