About The Show

NJ Troubadour, Pat Guadagno, and some very special guests celebrate the Head-Scratching, Mind-Bending, brilliance of Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer Tom Waits. Shady Street Showman Ryan Gregg, Hip Hop, Jazz & Blues Powerhouse Deseree Spinks, and Alternative Folk Award winner Emily Grove join Guadagno to deliver the Blood and Whiskey-Stained music of one of the most deviant and provocative artists of our time. Grammy Award winner Tom Waits recorded over 30 groundbreaking albums, replete with theatrical tales of bungled romance, late-night diners, and early-morning cold fronts. Anyone who has been to one of Guadagno’s musical celebrations, BobFest (Bob Dylan), A Marvelous Night (Van Morrison), 100 Years of Hank (Hank Williams) or Souvenirs (John Prine), knows to expect a selective harvest of the musical gems from the artists prolific catalog, delivered with passion and reverence that has become Guadagno’s trademark.

Opening Act:
Hailing from Bedfordshire, England, growing up on the American roots music of her Anglo-Indian grandmother’s record collection, singer/songwriter Danni Nicholls has been paving her way in UK Americana for over a decade, building a loyal fan base and much critical praise. With the wind still in her sails from three consecutive Americana Music Association UK award nominations (Album, Artist and Song of the year in 2017, 2018 & 2020 respectively) plus extensive tours and opening slots with the likes of The Secret Sisters, Sturgill Simpson and Lucinda Williams, Danni, her powerful, arresting voice and her dynamically poetic original songs are ever-gaining presence and reach.

Garnering comparisons to artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Brandi Carlile and Roseanne Cash, Danni’s vibrant, captivating performances are all but guaranteed to melt your heart into the soles of your boots. Her passionate delivery, captivating voice, mesmerising guitar skills and charmingly engaging between-song banter compel you to fall under her spell.

“I absolutely love the elegance and beauty of her music” – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“Sumptuous…a warm wry line in confessional songwriting” – UNCUT

“An artist full of wisdom and soul” – Maverick Music Magazine
