The swing keeps on swinging in the Lackland Center as Centenary Stage Company’s 2016 Summer Jamfest continues with The Artie Shaw Orchestra. Nicknamed “the king of swing” after his hit, Begin the Beguine, Artie Shaw was renowned for his innovative combination of instruments. Playing several of the original arrangements that made Artie Shaw so popular in the 40’s and 50’s, The Artie Shaw Orchestra remains one of the "swingingest" outfits around.  Featuring clarinetist Matthew Koza, the group hews to the Shaw legacy, and continues with the time-tested formula that has always pleased a full spectrum of audiences from the “Begin the Beguine” fans of yesteryear to the new jazz fans who want to imbibe in an exciting and heady evening of swing.

Centenary Stage Company’s 2016 Summer Jamfest closes on Saturday, August 6 with Desert Highway, A Tribute to The Eagles.  All performances are held in the Sitnik Theater of the Lackland Center.

Dodge Foundation, the NJ State Council on the Arts, the Shubert Foundation, the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, the Sandra Kupperman Foundation, and CSC corporate sponsors, including Premier Season Sponsor Heath Village Retirement Community, Silver Sponsors Hackettstown Regional Medical Center, Home Instead Senior Care (Washington), The Holiday Inn in Budd Lake.
