Avenel Performing Arts Center

NJ Troubadour, Pat Guadagno, and some very special guests celebrate the Head-Scratching, Mind-Bending, brilliance of Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer Tom Waits. Shady Street Showman Ryan Gregg, Hip Hop, Jazz & Blues Powerhouse Deseree Spinks, and Alternative Folk Award winner Emily Grove join Guadagno to deliver the Blood and Whiskey-Stained music of one of the most deviant and provocative artists of our time. Grammy Award winner Tom Waits recorded over 30 groundbreaking albums, replete with theatrical tales of bungled romance, late-night diners, and early-morning cold fronts. Anyone who has been to one of Guadagno’s musical celebrations, BobFest (Bob Dylan), A Marvelous Night (Van Morrison), 100 Years of Hank (Hank Williams) or Souvenirs (John Prine), knows to expect a selective harvest of the musical gems from the artists prolific catalog, delivered with passion and reverence that has become Guadagno’s trademark.
