MARSHALL CRENSHAW plus JIM BOGGIA Audience Appreciation Concert 
Ticket Alert:  Fewer than 50 seats remain for this concert.  Please consider purchasing in advance.  THIS CONCERT IS NOW CLOSED FOR PICK SIX SEATING.

Our annual Audience Appreciation Concert features two brilliant vanguards of the jangly, melodic, retro-Pop movement, Marshall Crenshaw (Someday, Someway) and Jim Boggia.  

Marshall is the consummate gourmet of pop culture. He played Buddy Holly in the film "La Bamba" and played John Lennon in the stage production of Beatlemania. His quirky, eclectic songs (including his classics "Someday Someway" and "The Usual Thing") draw inspiration from Motown, FM rock (he wrote the book Hollywood Rock, a history of rock music in film), and even Vegas lounge acts (his rousing live shows often include old Sammy Davis songs, as well as early George Harrison and of course lots of his own originals).

Jim describes himself as "Your One-Stop Shop for Yester-Pop!"  His enduring love for the music of the 1970's shows itself in his hits, including "Glory" (#1 Billboard), in his latest album, Misadventures in Stereo, which was mastered at Abbey Road Studios, and in his jaw-droppingly soulful fingerpicked guitar version of "She's Leaving Home." 

To thank our audience for another remarkable Sanctuary season, tickets are only $20.

Sat., May 17 8PM   in Chatham
End-of-Season Ice Cream Social, $1 CD Sale, and Concert, featuring MODERN MAN and Scott Sheldon  ($15/Free for Pick Six members)
Our 2013/2014 season was a joy, including unforgettable sold-out performances by Nick Lowe, Rosanne Cash, Kathy Mattea, Red Molly, Marc Cohn, The Wainwright/Roche Family and so many more. So, it's time to celebrate and to thank our loyal audience!

The evening includes an over-the-top Ice-Cream Social, included in the $15 admission price. During the ice-cream social, we will hold our very popular One Dollar CD Sale, at which hundreds of CDs will be sold for one dollar each. We encourage you to bring your own CDs to trade.

The full-length concert features a rare reunion of the comic trio Modern Man (David Buskin, Rob Carlson and George Wurzbach), three funnymen whose songs include "Jews Don't Camp" and "Don't You Hate It When They Make You Sing Along?

The evening will begin with a short set of supposedly funny songs from a veteran NJ singer/songwriter whose last performance at The Sanctuary twelve years ago was reviewed as "open mic level."  A compilation CD that featured his music was described as "a collection of unknown artists who are destined to stay that way."  As Scott Sheldon puts it, "I've suffered for my art.  Now, it's your turn.

Modern Man were the first artists ever to perform for us.  They are reuniting to help us mark our own Scott Sheldon's last season as the presenter of The Sanctuary Concerts.  Please join us in celebrating Scott's 14 years as the head of our series. 

To thank our audience for another remarkable Sanctuary season, tickets are only $15, and free for Pick Six Subscribers.
