Woltosz Theatre

A.J. Croce performs Croce Plays Croce, a special night of music featuring a complete set of classics by his late father Jim Croce, some of A.J.’s own tunes, and songs that influenced both him and his father. Croce Plays Croce features such timeless hits as “Operator,” “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim” and “Time in a Bottle,” (a song written for A.J.), to name a few. Throughout the evening, A.J. speaks on his musical connection to his father, painting a picture of family, artistry and memory.  

A.J.’s 25-year career has produced nine studio albums that have charted 18 Top 20 singles. A virtuoso piano player, A.J. has toured with artists such as Willie Nelson, B.B. King, and Earth, Wind & Fire. His latest album project, Just Like Medicine, features Vince Gill and Steve Cropper, and was produced by Muscle Shoals legend Dan Penn. 

“He’s connecting the dots between father and son, who despite never really knowing one another shared a musical bond.”
