(DEAL PARK, NJ) -- Remember Jones and special guests are presenting The Who's rock opera album, Tommy, live in concert at the Axelrod Performing Arts Center with six performances from November 10-19, 2023. Special guests included Glen Burtnik, Jeff Kazee, JaQuita May and more.  Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

Jersey Shore “soul sensation” Remember Jones serves as creative director and musical director, and sang the songs of the character Tommy, originally sung by Roger Daltrey. He is joined by Glen Burtnik (hit songwriter and entertainer currently with The Weeklings, formerly of Styx) as Uncle Ernie; Jeff Kazee (pianist, vocalist, and songwriter, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Bon Jovi, Early Elton Trio) as the Pinball Wizard; JaQuita May (Summer of Love, Disciples of Soul) as The Acid Queen; Johnny Pisano (Willie Nile) on bass and as the Doctor; Joey Secchiaroli (The Reign of Kindo, Remember Jones) as The Hawker; Jeremy Rotolo (singer/songwriter/actor, Rock of Ages, American Idiot) as Cousin Kevin; Taylor Tote (singer/songwriter) as Sally Simpson; and a 10-piece band including Joe Bellia of The Weeklings, Jeremy Korpas, Chris Brouwers, Mike Gilch, Stevi Incremona, members of Remember Jones touring band, and more! 

“It’s an honor to bring this legendary rock opera to life with a mix of such notable rock talent and up-and-coming artists,” said Remember Jones. “It feels like the Axelrod is giving us, performers and audiences alike, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
