Marshall Crenshaw Featured at Centenary's WNTI Stage Festival
July 07, 2014 --
HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., July 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Marshall Crenshaw has just about done it all, from acting to playing music, but when it comes down to it, he is most at home performing in front of appreciative audiences. And that's just what he'll be doing when he hits the stage at this year's WNTI Stage Festival.
Presented by WNTI Radio at Centenary College in partnership with Kennedy Events Services, WNTI Stage takes place at the Lions Pavilion on Route 46 in Knowlton Township (N.J.). The dates are August 15 through August 17. It will feature the same kind of great music everyone has become accustomed to, from acoustic singer-songwriters to some good old rock 'n roll!
Crenshaw began playing guitar at age ten and he received his first break playing John Lennon in the off-Broadway company of Beatlemania. In 1987, he played Buddy Holly in the Richie Valens biopic "La Bamba."
He recorded the single "Something's Gonna Happen" for Alan Betrock's Shake Records, which led to a deal with Warner Bros. His debut album, "Marshall Crenshaw," was acclaimed as a pop masterpiece in 1982 and established him as a first-rate songwriter, singer and guitarist.
As Crenshaw was developing Jaggedland's mix of poignant and incisive love songs and musings on mortality, he ventured once again into the film world, co-penning the title track to the hilarious, critically acclaimed John C. Reilly film "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story"; the track was nominated for a 2008 Golden Globe and a 2008 Grammy Award.
Among the other featured acts throughout the weekend will be Willie Nile with James Maddock, Spuyten Duyvil, The Grand Slambovians, Todd Wolfe and more! In all, there will be over 20 musical acts in total.
Friday hours are 6-10 p.m., Saturday 12-10 p.m., and Sunday, 12-7 p.m. The charge for admittance is $10 Friday and Sunday (each day), and $20 on Saturday. Children 12 and under free. Parking is free.
The food menu is as diverse as the music, with everything from seafood to American Classic food available.
Major sponsors for WNTI Stage are Knowlton Lions Club, Century Link and the Knowlton Township Cultural and Heritage Commission.
