To many, Pat DiNizio wasn’t just a consummate performer, singer, songwriter and front man of The Smithereens — he was a son, a father, a bandmate and a friend.

Days earlier, the Count Basie Theatre and E-Street Band guitarist / Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer Steven Van Zandt had announced a first-of-its-kind Smithereens performance to roll out the Basie’s new, open-floor club concert configuration – an atmosphere tailor-fit for a memorable night of rock.

In that vein, the show will go on.

“I was set to host this Smithereens and Patty Smyth and Scandal show as part of Citi’s Underground Garage at the Basie series,” Van Zandt said. “With the sudden, tragic passing of Pat DiNizio, I think it’s appropriate that we take this moment to pay tribute to him. I will be honored to sing a few of his songs with the band, and I’m asking any friends of mine if they can make themselves available for a song or two. We’ll see who’s around and announce them shortly.”

A portion of ticket sales will go towards the establishment of the PAT DiNIZIO MUSICAL PERFORMANCE SCHOLARSHIP at the Basie’s Performing Arts Academy. The Basie Academy is home to rock, vocal, jazz and classical music programs.
