AJ Croce- Croce Plays Croce

March 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$27.50 – $39.50

Individual Ticket Sales February 8, 2022

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. Certainly today, a new generation of listeners might not know Jim Croce — 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. Consequently, this show pays homage to the legacy of Jim Croce’s music, presented by a Croce. As a result, 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.

According to Willie Nelson, “A.J. Croce has wisdom beyond his years. With his music, he represents his generation with a profound sense of honesty in his lyrics and quality in his delivery. The future of entertainment is safe in his hands!”    From his debut as a jazz influenced blues artist to his evolution into a pop music iconoclast, A.J. Croce has traveled a circuitous musical road leading to his new studio album, Just Like Medicine, his 9th studio album.” 

Who is A. J. Croce?

In the span of a 25+ year career, A.J. has gone from his start at age 18 opening for B.B. King on tour, to headlining festivals, concerts and major listening venues worldwide. Likewise, he has been seen and heard on shows including The Late Show and Good Morning America, and shared the stage with artists from Willie Nelson to Ray Charles, Béla Fleck to James Brown, and Rod Stewart to Ben Harper.

“ How lucky are we that a talent like Jim Croce came along in our lifetime. His music and voice will live on long after we’re gone . . .” — Dolly Parton

“A.J. is a skilled singer, songwriter and virtuoso pianist who is equally adept at blues, boogie-woogie, stride, ragtime, and other rootsy styles.” – George Varga, Union Tribune San Diego
