Joey VJoey Verskotzi will help set the tone for a spectacular season at the Loft Stage by performing as the entertainment for the 6th annual Loft Stage Opening Night Gala. L’etoile Magazine describes Verskotzi as “an old-school singer-songwriter, that beautifully dying breed of chrysalis that used to dominate the rock universe.. His debut record Lemon Heart is a magnificent example of the form.. power-pop.. chamber-pop (the love of nifty arrangements and perfect harmonies), indie-pop.. perfect melodies & terrific singing all the way through.” Tickets for the November 7th gala are $10.00 and the 6:00pm event is catered by Green Mill. A silent auction to raise funds for theater education, a free photo booth and delicious treats by Mary Bolger will also be a part of our celebration.
