An Evening with David Johansen
The special show, which has been titled "An Evening with David Johansen," will present the singer-songwriter side of this multi-faceted entertainer, featuring songs from the New York Dolls both old and new, his solo records with The David Johansen Band, Buster Poindexter, The Harry Smiths, and even a few choice covers.
"I've been wanting to play a bunch of songs that I don't normally get the opportunity to sing in a loud and fast Dolls show. As much as I love that, I also like to explore the more soulful side of singing," Johansen said.
Johansen last-performed at the Trenton War Memorial nearly a year ago with blues legend Hubert Sumlin to a sold-out crowd. The show was such a success that he decided to return "with some really great musicians." He continued, "I'll be singing songs from throughout my career and maybe some songs that have inspired me in a mellow and intimate setting. I think it's going to be beautiful, and a cool way to start the Thanksgiving holiday weekend," he said.
