Rocker Jim Boggia presents “Bruce Off Broadway: A Ukulele Tribute to The Boss” at the JCC of Central NJ on Saturday, March 28

Bruce Off Broadway is Jim Boggia’s loving tribute to the Bruce Springsteen songbook, performed on ukulele.

Jim Boggia has been winning over fans, critics, contemporaries and luminaries for over 20 years with his uncompromising devotion to emotionally direct songcraft. He has released three acclaimed studio albums, collaborated with a startling array of artists — including Joan Osborne, Aimee Mann, Juliana Hatfield, Mike Viola, Tracy Bonham, Bernadette Peters, and NRBQ’s Big Al Anderson — and frequent performances with preeminent Beatles tribute band, the Fab Faux, and 18-piece collective Mad Dogs & Dominos, bringing to stage the music of Delaney And Bonnie, Derek And The Dominos, Joe Cocker, solo George Harrison, Leon Russell and their creative roots.

Along the way, he got a ukulele and he learned how to make it talk. And once he got it talking, he got to finding ingenious ways of using those four little strings to play some of the most complex rock arrangements with all the grace and power of the originals. Inspired by the response Boggia has received from his ukulele version of “Thunder Road,” he has crafted uke arrangements of other Springsteen classics to present in this unique night of music.

Price: $20 at the door, $25 at the door, beer and wine available for purchase.
