With Marshall Crenshaw Set To
Play The Music Box
The Smithereens along with Marshall Crenshaw will be playing the Music Box Supper Club on Thursday, August 22.
The Smithereens remain one of America’s musical treasures. Formed in New Jersey in 1980, the band’s timeless power-pop sound - rife with strong, catchy melodies, meaningful lyrics and walls of layered guitar, bass and drums - remains intact.
Signature songs like "Blood and Roses," "A Girl Like You," "Only a Memory" and a raft of critically-acclaimed albums (Especially for You, Green Thoughts, and many others) have cemented the band’s place in the hearts, minds and ears of their devoted worldwide fan-base.
The band continues to tour with three original members (Babjak, Diken and bassist Mike Mesaros) despite the unfortunate death in 2017 of founding lead singer, songwriter, guitarist Pat DiNizio.
The band is currently fronted by another noteworthy veteran of the power-pop scene, Marshall Crenshaw, who is enjoying his time touring with the band while also having established his own noteworthy career, which includes having a Top 40 hit in 1982 with Someday, Someway. Marshall does a great job of carrying on the tradition and high standards the band have set for themselves and for their fans over the years.
