COUNTDOWN TO NYE
Joe McGinty & The Loser’s Lounge join forces with world-renowned New York City Soul Man Carlton J. Smith to debut “The Soul of Tom Waits.” This all-new show explores what happens when you combine the songwriting genius of Tom Waits, with the classic Soul and R&B arrangements, and energetic performances of The Loser’s Lounge and singer Carlton J. Smith.
“Not only is The Loser’s Lounge excited to be performing the incredible songs of Tom Waits for the first time, but this is also the first show that we’re doing that features only one lead singer, rather than our long-standing multiple guest-singer format. Carlton J. Smith is an incredible frontman, who will definitely bring the SOUL to ‘The Soul of Tom Waits,’“ says Loser’s Lounge founder and bandleader Joe McGinty.
“You’ve never heard these songs quite like this before! It’s as if Wilson Pickett and Bobby Womack tackled the Tom Waits songbook,” adds Smith.
