Had a wonderful time with my husband at the Smithereens show at Duke Island Park.
A classic 1980s band from Scotch Plains, New Jersey, did many of their songs plus some Beatles songs, a Who song and the Youngbloods.
True musicians, such great talents and Pat DiNizio has such a gorgeous voice.
Current line-up: Pat DiNizio on vocals, rhythm guitar; Jim Babjak, lead guitar and vocals; Severo “The Thrilla” (from Manila) Jornacion on bass (awesome bassist!) and vocals; and Dennis Diken on drums and percussion.
My favorite songs included: “Only a Memory” “Behind the Wall of Sleep” and “Blood and Roses.”
The entire show was phenomenal! They were fun, making the audience feel as if you knew them personally, shared great stories on stage. Very cool.
I only have one CD, now we’ll get more, definitely.
Thank you to The Smithereens for performing tonite! Much appreciated — a million times!!
So cool, looks like Jim is posing for me!
