"Time and Time Again: A Celebration of Pat DiNizio" Concert To Be Streamed Live Online
(RED BANK, NJ) -- This weekend’s “Time And Time Again: A Celebration of Pat DiNizio” concert at the Count Basie Theatre will be streamed live on theBASIE.org beginning at 8:00pm EST on Saturday, January 13th.The concert came together following DiNizio’s passing last month. With the Smithereens set to perform as part of the Citi-presented Little Steven’s Underground Garage at The Basie series, “Little Steven” Van Zandt curated a tribute to the legendary New Jersey rocker.
A portion of ticket sales will establish the Pat DiNizio Musical Performance Scholarship at the Basie’s Performing Arts Academy. Online viewers will be encouraged to contribute towards the scholarship fund via the Basie Web site.
“With the sudden, tragic passing of Pat DiNizio, I think it’s appropriate that we take this moment to pay tribute to him,” Van Zandt said. “I will be honored to sing a few of his songs with the band.”
The event will feature the Smithereens – Jim Babjak, Dennis Diken, Severo Jornacion and Mike Mesaros – joined by Van Zandt, Scandal vocalist Patty Smyth, Marshall Crenshaw, Ted Leo, Robin Wilson of The Gin Blossoms, Freedy Johnston, Richard Barone (The Bongos), Graham Maby, Peter Zaremba and Keith Streng (The Fleshtones), Bebe Buell, The Grip Weeds, Soraia, legendary guitarist John Jorgensen, Kenny Margolis (Cracker), producer Ed Stasium, Andy Burton, Kenny Howes and others.
“I’m heartened and overwhelmed – though not surprised – at the outpouring of love for Pat since his passing,” said Smithereens drummer and co-founder Dennis Diken. “The fact that the Basie show sold out within minutes speaks volumes and I know there will be a lot of love in the room on Saturday night as we celebrate Pat’s life and music. The DiNizio Musical Performance Scholarship offers a wonderful way to keep his spirit alive and pass along his passion for music and self-expression for generations to come and enlighten young musicians.”

A short film about DiNizio will be shown during the concert, along with tributes from artists inspired by Pat’s work. Fans can expect a set of The Smithereens’ greatest hits, ranging from “A Girl Like You,” “Miles From Nowhere,” “Blood And Roses” and much more. Legendary Metropolitan-area radio host Jim Monaghan will host.
The live stream is being facilitated by Kiswe Mobile, an industry-leader in delivering interactive streaming experiences.
For the first time ever, the Basie will unveil to the public its “club” concert configuration. With a stage and viewing area built over the theater seats to create an intimate, open-floor atmosphere, the idea is to give fans a peek of what’s to come when the Basie completes its expansion and opens doors to an all-new, 800-capacity performance space to complement the venue’s historic theater.
Citi Presents Little Steven’s Underground Garage at The Basie is a series of public and private concerts at the nonprofit theater curated by Steven and Maureen Van Zandt, with the mission of delivering both classic and new rock and roll to devoted fans. The series of performances support the nonprofit theater’s $23 million capital campaign and expansion plan, which broke ground last fall.
The Count Basie Theatre is located at 99 Monmouth Street in Red Bank, New Jersey.
