Tour name: Croce Plays Croce – Gallo Center for the Arts
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 his son A.J.) in his wake. Croce Plays Croce pays homage to the legacy of Jim Croce, and features a complete set of his classics performed by A.J., along with some of his own tunes, plus songs that influenced both father and son. Expect to hear such timeless songs as “Operator,” “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim,” “Workin’ At the Car Wash Blues,” “Rapid Roy (The Stock Car Boy),” “One Less Set of Footsteps,” “Lovers Cross,” and “Box #10,” to name a few.
