Croce Plays Croce
7:30pm / Community Concert Hall @ Fort Lewis
The son of legendary singer/songwriter Jim Croce, A.J. Croce returns to the stage with a new show featuring a complete set of classics by his father including the timeless songs, “Operator,” “Don’t Mess Around with Jim,” “Time in a Bottle,” and more. A.J. Croce, an accomplished performer in his own right, strikes a fine balance between paying heartfelt homage to his father’s artistic legacy and injecting the songs with his own spin and personality. The anecdotes A.J. shares about his father’s songs, like the songs themselves, are all the more touching coming from the son who has grown to become every bit his dad’s artistic equal.
