BRUCE OFF BROADWAY: A UKULELE TRIBUTE TO THE BOSS w/JIM BOGGIA * Friday, June 22nd (Early Show) The Saint Presents Bruce Off Broadway: A Ukulele Tribute To The Boss With Jim Boggia and special guests, Doors 7pm, $15 (In Advance) / $20 (Day Of Show) at THE SAINT.
Bruce Off Broadway is Jim Boggia's loving tribute to the Bruce Springsteen songbook, performed on ukulele. Jim has been winning over fans, critics, contemporaries and luminaries for over 20 years with his uncompromising devotion to emotionally direct songcraft. He has released three acclaimed studio albums, collaborated with a startling array of artists — including Joan Osborne, Aimee Mann, Juliana Hatfield, Mike Viola, Tracy Bonham, and NRBQ’s Big Al Anderson — and frequent performances with preeminent Beatles tribute band, the Fab Faux. Along the way, he got a ukulele and he learned how to make it talk. And once he got it talking, he got to finding ingenious ways of using those four little strings to play some of the most complex rock arrangements with all the grace and power of the originals. Inspired by the response Boggia has received from his ukulele version of "Thunder Road," he has crafted uke arrangements of other Springsteen classics to present in this unique night of music.
