(WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- Pat Guadagno, a Jersey Shore legend, along with some very special guests celebrated the music of Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Tom Waits at Monmouth University's Pollak Theatre on Saturday, September 24, 2022.  Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

In a career spanning 6 decades, Grammy Award winner Tom Waits recorded over 30 groundbreaking albums. His prolific catalogue, with theatrical tales of bungled romance, late night diners and early morning cold fronts sets the stage for a unique, innovative evening, as The Music of Tom Waits ‘cuts through the night like a Cleveland-bound Greyhound’ straight to The Heart of Saturday Night. 

Eryn and Matt O’Ree, along with Shady Street Showman Ryan Gregg, joined Guadagno and his band Small Change to deliver the Blood and Whiskey-Stained music of one of the most deviant and provocative artists of our time.

Few artists can interpret a song and make it their own like Pat Guadagno.  He's been filling venues from concert halls to the local bar for decades. As the NY Times once said, he provides "A musical journey... always an unpredictable ride..."

The Self-Proclaimed Saloon Singer found his way out from under the TV, in the corner, behind the pool table,   into the international spotlight when his music was featured on the Award-winning Showtime series Californicaton.

Guadagno has recorded 5 albums filled with Musical surprises including collaborations with Grammy Award winner Keb’ Mo’  and Dove Award Winner Steve Delopoulos.  His unique interpretations of other artist works are showcased in both his recordings and live performances where he has created reverent theatrical tributes to Van Morrison – A Marvelous Night , Tom Waits – Heart of Saturday Night, John Prine –  Souvenirs and Bob Dylan – BobFest, (‘NJ’s Hippest Musical Tradition’ – Rock Journalist Uncle Mike.)
