A.J. Croce returns to New Orleans for 3 shows tonight and tomorrow, 7/8 and 7/9

The acclaimed San Diego-based singer/songwriter recorded two cuts off of his critically lauded new album, Twelve Tales, under the direction of producer Allen Toussaint.

In keeping with his all-inclusive approach to music, he will be performing in three entirely different settings. Tonight, the show will be at the Maple Leaf Bar. The set begins at 8 PM and will be over in time for the Rebirth Brass Band’s regular 11 PM set.

The Maple Leaf Bar is one of the last remaining live music saloons in New Orleans where smoking is still allowed. Croce’s set will be non-smoking.

Wednesday evening, he plays a free set at the Louisiana Music Factory. Then the music continues in the wonderful new performance space in the Old U.S. Mint, which is a stone’s throw from the record store’s new location on Frenchmen Street.

If you haven’t seen a set yet on the third floor of the Mint, you are in for a delightful surprise. The room is acoustically pristine and every show I have heard has sounded perfect. Tickets are available here.

    I love A.J. Croce! Thanks Vinyl Direct for sharing about his cool run in New Orleans. Everyone here should know about his first-ever LP release in his career. Among his eight album releases, the new album ‘Twelve Tales’ is the first to get on vinyl. It’s available on Amazon and in some stores.
