Scranton Musician Goes ‘All In’ With ‘Jack of Hearts’
Jack Woodbridge to debut long-awaited CD for his hometown crowd You can fold…or you can go ‘all in’ because you know you’re holding the ‘Jack of Hearts’. Well, at least, that’s what Scranton native, Jack Woodbridge, did.Jack was living in New York City pursuing a very successful musical career, which included the composition of hundreds of songs, two Off-Broadway scores and a rock opera for National Public Radio, when he was told that he had ten days to ‘get his affairs in order’ before undergoing spinal surgery that, at the time, had never been performed. Instead of spiraling into despair, he scheduled studio time and poured his fears, his emotions and his incredible talent into his music. Wine and refreshments will be served after the concert for a ‘meet and greet’ with Jack and a ‘celebratory toast’ to the man and music that will serve as inspiration at those times when life dictates the need for tough decisions.A portion of the proceeds will be donated to St. Luke’s for their use in furthering their on-going deep commitment to their community.This is the second event presented as a joint venture between PocoNotes and Duffy Accessories…like-minded folks who want to make a difference in a way they can in Northeastern Pennsylvania, which is an area they love and choose to call home.
