The Broadway Theatre of Pitman presents Drew Angus

(PITMAN, NJ) -- The Broadway Theatre of Pitman presents Drew Angus and his band with local opener, AFTYN on Friday, June 9, 2023 at 8:00pm. Drew's music is a unique blend of Americana, Rock 'n Roll, Funk and Retro Soul, influenced by classic rock artists like The Beatles, Tom Petty, and The Rolling Stones, as well as modern-day artists like John Mayer, Ben Rector, and The Lone Bellow. 

Drew was a 2016 American Idol finalist. His impressive work ethic and captivating nature have led him to share stages with some of the biggest names in music, such as Harry Styles, Nile Rogers, Ann Willson of Heart, Pat Benatar, and Andrea Bocelli. You won’t want to miss the chance to be a part of Drew Angus and his band’s live performance, where they’ll debut their latest releases.

Tickets are $25 and available for purchase online. Tickets are also available by calling 856-384-8381 Monday through Friday between 8:00am - 4:00pm, the day of at The Box Office (cash only).

Opening for Drew is a Pitman duo called AFTYN. “A simplistic indie/folk duo, AFTYN are hellbent on keeping it personal. Comprised of members Guinnevere Philipp and Chris Maher, AFTYN aims to evoke an updated 70’s folk sound, blended with both classic and alternative influences. Soothing melodies and raw instrumentation are the core of the duo, who self describe themselves as ‘modern hippies’. Their approach to live shows is uniquely down to earth, keeping their setup stripped back so they can engage with the crowd with their relaxed, folk-driven sound.”

Broadway Theatre of Pitman is located at 43 S Broadwayin Pitman, New Jersey. Originally opened in May 1926, the Broadway operated as a fully equipped movie and vaudeville theater with 1,090 seats, including the balcony and eight boxes.

The opulent New Jersey theatre was created in a French Revival motif by the Philadelphia firm of Eberhard, Magaziner, and Harris. Two crystal chandeliers light the house and inner lobby of the Broadway. And, a great deal of the original cast plaster detail remains intact today with the original molds still on the premises. A small orchestra pit, four private dressing rooms, a common room, two bathrooms, and a pipe organ blower room in the basement can also be found.

The Broadway Theatre of Pitman still has its original 3/8 Kimball theatre pipe organ – a unique instrument for its size. The Southern Jersey Theatre Organ Society has restored the Kimball to full concert status.

The Theatre was purchased at a sheriff’s sale in February 2006 by Peter Slack. In addition, on September 23 of that year, the Greater Pitman Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with Heritage Foundation, Inc., helped reopen the theatre doors with the Bring Back Broadway Gala, a once-in-a-lifetime, black-tie optional gala to celebrate the Broadway Theatre of Pitman’s rebirth as the pride of Pitman.

"I tell everyone that I'm the last surviving original member of my band, however I had a 50/50 chance where some other guys didn't," laughed John Ford Coley as he reflected upon his former partnership with the late England Dan, current bands with no original members, his very loyal fan base and his fellow mellow rockers as they get ready to bring "Rock The Dock" to Englewood, NJ for a night of some of the greatest adult contemporary and easy listening tunes ever created.
