Oct. 27 marks the 10th anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s instant-classic Back to Black album, and the Stone Pony in Asbury Park will celebrate a month later with a performance of the album, in its entirety, by Remember Jones, backed by a 20-piece band. The show is on Nov. 25 (the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend), and tickets are $22; visit stoneponyonline.com.
Remember Jones has previously presented this show at several other New Jersey venues, as well as on a national tour.
Remember Jones (a stage name adopted by the artist formerly known as Anthony D’Amato in 2014) will also perform his debut album — Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!, released earlier this year — in its entirety at this show, and Brielle Von Hugel will open.
The influential, Grammy-winning Back to Black yielded five memorable hit singles: “Rehab,” “You Know I’m No Good,” “Tears Dry on Their Own,” “Love Is a Losing Game” and the title track. Winehouse died in 2011, at the age of 27.
Here is a video of Remember Jones performing “Rehab” at a Light of Day benefit concert at the House of Independents in Asbury Park, in January 2016:
