Mef & Angela Opening For Crenshaw Oct. 14

Originally from Detroit and now a mainstay throughout the United States, Marshall Crenshaw brings his highly regarded repertoire of music to the Roxbury Performaing Arts Center’s Investor Savings Theater at Horseshoe Lake in Succassunna on Saturday Oct. 14. Opening up for Crenshaw is regional favorite, Mef & Angela, both of whom are well known to the Northwest New Jersey music scene. Starting with his first big break in 1978 playing John Lennon in “Beatlemania”, first as an understudy in New York, then in the West Coast company followed by a national touring company, Crenshaw’s career zoomed from there. Crenshaw settled in New York City and shortly after crossing paths with the great and legendary Alan Betrock, he recorded his debut single “Something’s Gonna Happen”.  His debut album, Marshall Crenshaw, was acclaimed as a masterpiece upon its release in 1982 and established him as a singular songwriter, record maker, and guitarist. The album spawned the hit single “Someday, Someway,” and other classics such as “(You’re My) Favorite Waste of Time”, “Whenever You’re On My Mind” and “Cynical Girl.” Over the course of a career that’s spanned three decades, 13 albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, film and TV appearances (Buddy Holly in “La Bamba”) and thousands of performances,  Crenshaw’s musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of artfulness, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base.  Show time is 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance online or at the door the day of the event. To learn more about the Roxbury Arts Alliance and tickets, as well as the full Fall schedule of events, please visit (Photo by Lisa Tanner)
