Description

Opening Act: Larry Stevens Band

Special guest vocalist Robin Wilson of the Gin Blossoms will be joining Jim Babjak, Dennis Diken and Mike Mesaros of The Smithereens.

Known for their catchy 1960s-influenced power pop that inspired countless alternative rockers, The Smithereens gained popularity with “11” the album that spawned college campus favorites “A Girl Like You”, “Blood and Roses” & “Blue Period”. In April of 2011 Smithereens released “2011” their first album of new material in 12 years. Produced by Don Dixon (who helmed “Especially For You”, the group’s breakout debut), the seminal New Jersey rockers picked up right where they left off: with irresistibly catchy hooks and rapturously fuzzed-out guitars. Now they’re back on the road with their catalog of classic hits as well as new favorites. Following the sad passing of lead vocalist Pat DiNizio in 2017, original members Jim Babjak (guitar & vocals), Dennis Diken (drums & percussion) and Mike Mesaros on bass guitar carry on the Smithereens legacy.

Kicking off the night is Larry Stevens. Stevens, who performs regularly across the East Coast, has shared stages with an extensive list of chart-topping national acts, including Huey Lewis and the News, Gin Blossoms, Kenny Rogers, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Kenny Loggins, America, and many others.
