Recurring Event Event Series: Croce Plays Croce

Croce Plays Croce

November 11, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

A.J. Croce’s Croce Plays Croce pays homage to the legacy of Jim Croce, and features a complete set of classics by A.J.’s legendary father Jim Croce, some of his own tunes and songs that influenced both A.J. and his father. The show often includes such timeless songs as “Operator,” “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim,” “Workin’ At the Car Wash Blues,” “Rapid Roy (The Stock Car Boy),” “One Less Set of Footsteps,” “Lovers Cross,” and “Box #10,” to name a few.

Today, a new generation of listeners might not know Jim Croce as a golden-voiced everyman, a singer-songwriter-guitarist who died too soon, leaving one of pop music’s most beautiful and memorable ballads (written for a young A.J.) in his wake. This show pays homage to the legacy of Jim Croce’s music, presented by a Croce. While fans have been able to hear Jim’s recorded music for decades, now for the first time in 40 years they can experience it live.

A.J. Croce is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, known for his boogiewoogie piano playing reminiscent of Dr. John. He has recorded nine studio albums in 25 years, incorporating pop, blues, folk, and jazz into his own unique style. A.J. lost his father at age two, and his music bears little resemblance to his father’s, yet they share many influences. Croce Plays Croce, celebrates his father’s life and music, and explores the musical influences they both share as artists.
