Throwback Concert: The Smithereens at The Sting 1994

Throwback Concert: The Smithereens at The Sting 1994

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1994.

One of the clubs we miss here in Connecticut is the old Sting in New Britain. Many great artists have played there, including Eddie Money, John Entwistle, B.B. King, Todd Rundgren, Motorhead, Buddy Guy, Peter Frampton and more. Sadly, The Sting no longer exists, but the memories of the shows there will live on forever.

Today we look back at another artist that played at the Sting: The Smithereens in 1994, fronted by our friend, the late Pat DiNizio. We miss you Pat!
