Today, songs like Hey Jealousy, Found Out About You and Allison Road have the ability to transport 90's kids right back to their youth. Over 30 years later, the Gin Blossoms are still making and sharing their music with their fans.

On Tuesday (10/03/23) the Ridgefield Playhouse announced a brand new Gin Blossoms show set for New Year's Eve (12/31/23).

I wore that album (CD) down to molecules, at some point the CD and my Sony Discman fused and became one unit, never to be seperated for any reason. New Miserable Experience is a part of my brain,  I love that band with all my heart and always will.

Ridgefield Playhouse Exec Shares Revealing Tales About Richards and More

The Ridgefield Playhouse and I-95 have had a longstanding and fruitful business relationship.The Playhouse, it's leadership and staff have always been welcoming to us and we like to think we've been good to them as well.

I've been doing the I-95 Morning Show for 15 years and in that time I've had so many wonderful memories in that building. We performed our Ethan and Lou 10 year Anniversary concert there, I've met countless celebrities at the Playhouse and have attended many of their shows.

Many of the top flight guests we've booked on the I-95 Morning Show have been courtesy of our association with the Playhouse. But it wasn't just the rock stars that got invited to our studio, the people behind the curtain have always been regular guests on our shows.

Jared Shahid is the new Managing Director at the Ridgefield Playhouse but not a new face to us. Ethan and I have hung with him backstage, we've had him in the studio and he and I even worked on a TV project together.

Jared is one of the best storytellers I know so we were delighted to invite him back on the show. Recently, Shahid joined us on the the I-95 Morning Show with Ethan, Lou & Dave. Whenever he comes in, he brings tickets and stories for our audience. These are some of the amazing behind the scenes tales he shared with us on Thursday (5/25/23).
