“The Smithereens roared into the breach. They are one of those rare bands who produce great-sounding recordings… and sound even greater live.” -Kevin Coughlon

Known for their catchy 1960s-influenced power pop that inspired countless alternative rockers, The Smithereens gained popularity with “11” the album that spawned college campus favorites “A Girl Like You”, “Blood and Roses” & “Blue Period”. In April of 2011 Smithereens released “2011” their first album of new material in 12 years. Produced by Don Dixon (who helmed "Especially For You", the group’s breakout debut), the seminal New Jersey rockers picked up right where they left off: with irresistibly catchy hooks and rapturously fuzzed-out guitars. Now they’re back on the road with their catalog of classic hits as well as new favorites. With original members Pat DiNizio (vocals & guitar), Jim Babjak (guitar & vocals), and Dennis Diken (drums & percussion) and with Severo Jornacion on bass guitar.
