CSNsongs "Celebrating The Music Of Crosby Stills Nash & Young 

Pollak Theatre - 8 PM

CSNsongs is more than a tribute band. It is a group of seven New Jersey based musicians that create a full production show paying homage to the folk/rock group that changed music in the 1960s and '70s." All of "Crosby Stills Nash & Young's" compositions are highly respected by "CSNsongs" and are reproduced perfectly as they were originally written, recorded and performed throughout Crosby Stills Nash & Young's musical legacy. The iconic group’s music was born at the famous Woodstock Music Festival when Crosby, Stills and Nash hit the stage and changed the face of folk/rock music forever. Their music continued throughout the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s and is still popular and relevant today. CSN Songs helps audiences relive such special musical moments as Suite Judy Blue Eyes, Ohio, Love the One You’re With, Just a Song Before I Go, and Southern Man.
