WE NEED TO SMILE AGAIN!
Throughout their career, Tommy James & The Shondells have been doing exactly that. Making people smile. Making people dance. Making people groove. It’s more than just the 23 gold albums, 9 pla num albums, 100 million records sold worldwide, 32 Billboard “Hot 100” hits and, most impressive of all, the long string of hits heard on the radio over 21 million times.
Clearly, Tommy James music is inextricably bound within America's pop-culture DNA.
So... Are you ready to smile again?
One listen to his new Rock Party takes on 10 well-known slices of Americana, plus two surprise deep-cutsfrom the ‘90s — highlights “Annie Come Knockin’” and “Say Please”— remixed/revitalized, adding oomph, spark, crowds and thrills to the point where the ones you know like “Draggin’ The Line,” “Crystal Blue Persuasion,” “Crimson And Clover,” “Mony Mony,” “I Think We’re Alone Now” and more add up to a frenzy of rock ’n’ roll craziness...just like when we were kids.
And that’s just it. This music is teenage music. Tommy James never grew up! He’s still singing “Hanky Panky” like when he was 16 and he rst realized that...yeah,...his baby does do the hanky-panky.
We should all be so lucky.
