Special guest vocalist Marshall Crenshaw 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.

Over the course of a recording career that’s spanned three decades, 13 albums and hundreds of songs, Marshall Crenshaw's musical output has maintained a consistently high level of artistry, craftsmanship, and passion, endearing him to a broad and loyal fan base. After getting an early break playing John Lennon in a touring company of the Broadway musical Beatlemania, Crenshaw began his recording career with the now-legendary indie single “Something’s Gonna Happen.” The Eighties saw Marshall hit the charts again with «Someday, Someway,» «Cynical Girl,» «Whenever You're On My Mind,» «Maryanne,» «You're My Favorite Waste of Time» and more compositions covered by artists including Ronnie Spector, Gin Blossoms, and Bette Midler. Crenshaw is recognized as one of the era’s preeminent rock ’ n’ rollers, confirmed by such subsequent albums as Field Day, Downtown, Mary Jean & 9 Others, Good Evening, Life’s Too Short, Miracle of Science, #447, What’s in the Bag? and Jaggedland.
