SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Spin Doctors front man Chris Barron will bring his musical and storytelling talents to the Jewish Community Center of Central New Jersey in Scotch Plains on Saturday, May 12 at 9:00 p.m. 

Chris Barron rose to fame via his group the Spin Doctors in the early 90s. Their debut album Pocket Full Of Kryptonite (released in 1991) spawned two top ten hits, "Two Princes" and "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong." The album rose to #3 on Billboard's Top 200 chart. Barron still actively performs with the Spin Doctors and has become an accomplished solo artist in his own right. His current solo album Angels and One Armed Jugglers was released last fall to critical acclaim.
