41 Bridge Street presents Marshall Crenshaw on Saturday, May 6th at 8 pm!
Born in 1953 in Detroit, Michigan, Marshall Crenshaw learned to tune a guitar correctly at age ten and has been trying ever since. His first big break came in 1978 playing John Lennon in “Beatlemania,” first as an understudy in New York, then in the West Coast company followed by a national touring company. In February, 1980, Marshall settled in New York City. After crossing paths with the legendary Alan Betrock, Marshall recorded his debut single “Something’s Gonna Happen” (Shake Records), which led to a deal with Warner Bros. His debut album, “Marshall Crenshaw,” was acclaimed as a masterpiece upon its release in 1982 and established him as a singular songwriter, record maker, and guitarist. The album spawned the hit single “Someday, Someway,” and other classics such as “(You’re My) Favorite Waste of Time,” “Whenever You’re On My Mind” and “Cynical Girl.”
Over the course of a career that’s spanned three decades, 13 albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, film and TV appearances (Buddy Holly in “La Bamba”) and thousands of performances, Marshall Crenshaw’s musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of artfulness, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base.
