“Something's Going To Happen" as Marshall Crenshaw returns with full band, The Bottle Rockets, to perform familiar favorites including the Top 40 hit "Someday, Someway," "Mary Anne," "Cynical Girl" and "Whenever Your On My Mind." Portraying John Lennon in Broadway's Beatlemania and Buddy Holly in La Bamba, Marshall’s songs were covered by the likes of Gin Blossoms ("Till I Hear It from You") and Bette Midler (“You’re My Favorite Waste of Time”) plus Ronnie Spector, Robert Gordon and Freedy Johnston. In addition to backing Marshall, Festus, Missouri's Bottle Rockets open the show. Some of their concert favorites include “Alone In Bad Company,” “I'll Be Comin' Around,” “Gravity Fails” and “Radar Gun.” “Mr. Crenshaw’s songs seem to roll off the guitar in a casual blend of pre-1970s styles — folk rock, surf rock, country and above all the Beatles — that put melody first.” - New York Times
Marshall Crenshaw A quote from Trouser Press sums up Marshall Crenshaw's early career: "Although he was seen as a latter-day Buddy Holly at the outset, he soon proved too talented and original to be anyone but himself." All Music Guide captured Crenshaw's vibe perfectly: "He writes songs that are melodic, hooky and emotionally true, and he sings and plays them with an honesty and force that still finds room for humor without venom." Born in Detroit, Michigan, Crenshaw began playing guitar at age ten and he received his first break playing John Lennon in the off-Broadway company of Beatlemania. In 1987, he played Buddy Holly in the Richie Valens biopic "La Bamba."
