New Jersey native Evan Sherman is well known to audiences in NYC, and he was reintroduced to NJ in 2019 when he brought his big band to open the Morris Museum’s Jazz fest that year. Now his big band will fill the stage on the Back Deck and provide an evening of fun and great music.

Founded in 2014, the Evan Sherman Big Band is a 16-piece ensemble of jazz veterans and New York’s most dynamic young musicians. Praised in the West Australian as "big band heroes", they have headlined at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Rainbow Room, Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem, The Django in TriBeca, Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing, Caramoor Jazz Festival, SteelStacks (PA), and the Perth International Arts Festival (Australia).

Bring your own chairs and refreshments and enjoy live entertainment atop the Morris Museum’s elevated parking deck. Stunning sunsets, social distance, and glorious live music combine for a series of unforgettable evenings.

In the event of inclement weather, outdoor performances will be held inside the Museum’s Bickford Theatre. Masks are required while in the Bickford Theatre.
