Benefit Concert for the Homeless with Tommy James and the Shondells

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark is hosting its 4th Benefit Concert for the Homeless, this year featuring Tommy James and the Shondells.

All proceeds from ticket sales will directly support the homeless services and programs provided by Catholic Charities to individuals and families in need throughout the Newark Archdiocese of Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Union Counties – thanks to the underwriting provided by our event sponsors.

We are excited to present Tommy James and the Shondells, an iconic band that had its first #1 hit, “Hanky Panky” in 1966. The band went on to produce a string of successful pop/rock tunes including Crystal Blue Persuasion, Crimson & Clover, Mony Mony, I Think We’re Alone Now, Draggin the Line, Sweet Cherry Wine, Three Times in Love, and Mirage……totaling 23 gold records, 9 platinum albums, over 100 million records sold worldwide and 32 Billboard Hot 100 Chart Hits. 

Now entering his 53rd year in the music business Tommy James continues to tour the county with his strong expressive voice and a catalog of upbeat pop tunes that have a solid rock and roll punch.  Learn more @
