Marshall Crenshaw: 40 Years in Showbiz Tour
Marshall Crenshaw returns to Natalie’s for a stop on his “40 Years in Showbiz Tour! Over the course of a recording career that’s spanned four decades, Marshall Crenshaw’s musical output has maintained a consistently high level of artistry, craftsmanship and passion. After getting an early break playing John Lennon in a touring company of the Broadway musical Beatlemania, Crenshaw began his recording career with the now-legendary indie single “Something’s Gonna Happen.” His self-titled 1982 debut album established Crenshaw as one of the era’s preeminent rock ’ n’ rollers.
Along the way, Crenshaw’s compositions have been covered by a broad array of performers, including Bette Midler, Kelly Willis, Robert Gordon, Ronnie Spector, Marti Jones and the Gin Blossoms, with whom Crenshaw co-wrote the Top 10 single “Til I Hear It From You.” He’s also provided music for several film soundtracks, appeared in the films La Bamba (in which he portrayed Buddy Holly) and Peggy Sue Got Married, and was nominated for Grammy and a Golden Globe awards for writing the title track for the film comedy Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. He also worked on the Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger HBO series Vinyl.
For this special show at Natalie’s, he will be accompanied by a dynamic band that will include Fernando Perdomo (guitar/vocals), Mark Ortman (drums), and Derrick Anderson (bass, vocals).
