Popular cabaret ensemble Oasis Players marks its tenth anniversary with a return to the Museum  for a special program featuring songs of war and peace.  The cabaret comes just before the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It includes music from the American Revolution, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the war in Vietnam, as well as some of the peace songs that emerged in the 1960s.  Among the scheduled performers are Debbie Higgins and Ed Lamb of Tinton Falls, Sandi Edelstein of Marlboro, Ruthie Levy of Ocean, and Oasis co-founder Robert Weinstein of Matawan. Audiences should bring their singing voices with them because Oasis always includes a sing-along!

The Oasis Players was formed in 2009 with the goal of bringing elegant, cabaret-style concerts to local audiences throughout New Jersey. Typically, the group performs with five male and five  female singers, with piano accompaniment. They have performed at Monmouth University, churches, synagogues, senior developments, and local libraries.

This program is made possible in part by the Monmouth County Historical Commission through funding from the New Jersey Historical Commission of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

The JHMOMC is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Museum is handicapped and assisted listening accessible.
