BACK TO BACK TO BLACK: A TRIBUTE TO AMY WINEHOUSE BY REMEMBER JONES (15-PIECE ORCHESTRA)
July 23, 2016 @ 8:00 pm
National soul sensation Remember Jones fronts a 15-piece orchestra in back to BACK TO BLACK, a revival and re-creation of the entire 2006 Grammy-award winning, Amy Winehouse album Back to Black, in celebration of the album's 10th anniversary and commemorating 5 years to the exact night of Amy Winehouse's tragic passing, on Saturday night, July 23rd at The Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, directly outside of Philadelphia.
Featuring 17 songs including the hit singles "Rehab", "Tears Dry On Their Own", "You Know I'm No Good", "Love is a Losing Game", and the title track, "Back to Black", Remember Jones and company recreate the critically-acclaimed album with a horn section, strings, a backing choir, and other guests. This is a ONE OF A KIND EVENT celebrating the music that will not be heard live and lush anywhere else. It has sold out all previous engagements in Asbury Park, New Jersey, where the group has a stronghold on their thriving music community. The show is a part of a "5 Cities, 5 Shows, 5 Years Gone" tour, playing Brooklyn Bowl in New York City, Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Tires. in Detroit, Altar Bar in Pittsburgh, as well as The Ardmore Music Hall in Philadelphia, from July 16 through the 23rd (the day of her passing 5 years ago).
Remember Jones is a notorious and bombastic soul vocalist and persona, performing for enormous crowds throughout the country, and called "fiercely passionate frontman… one for the ages…" by Live for Live Music, "powerhouse soul singer" by American Songwriter Magazine, "New Jersey's most ambitious song interpreter" by NJ Arts, and "truly captivates audiences every time he performs" by BroadwayWorld. His recently released debut album,Ladies and Gentlemen, RememberJones!, available on CDBaby, iTunes, and Spotify, was recorded with a 25-piece soul orchestra in front of a live studio audience that raised $19,000 in it's funding.
