Welcome to Croces.com Portal page, where you can see all things Croce’s.

For over four decades many of you have written to me wanting to know more about Jim Croce, A.J. Croce and me. You have asked about who the real “Leroy Brown” was, who Jim’s songs were for and about…you have wanted to know where A.J. is performing, or about why Croce’s left the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego and moved to Croce’s Park West in Banker’s Hill.

Please write to me. I love to hear from fans and look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards,
Ingrid Croce
