The rock and roll songs of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller provide the basis for electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized 1950s setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions. Smokey Joe’s Cafe features over 30 of the greatest songs ever recorded, including There Goes My Baby, Spanish Harlem, Love Potion #9, On Broadway, Yakety Yak, Charlie Brown, Hound Dog, Poison Ivy, Little Egypt, I’m a Woman, I (Who Have Nothing), Jailhouse Rock, and Stand By Me.
Smokey Joe’s Cafe is sponsored by Business World, Christiansted Apothecary Hall, Imaging Center, P.C., JKC Communications of the VI, Marshall & Sterling Insurance, and Pauline Price, and jointly supported by a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, DC, a federal agency.
