Danny Jonokuchi amazed our Bickford audiences when he made his debut last October at the Bickford Benefit alongside Dan Levinson, now he makes his Back Deck debut with his own band!

Danny Jonokuchi & The Revisionists are a New York City based swing band that performs for the international Lindy Hop community. Fueled by a love of dancing, their music has been described as “smile-inducing” (DownBeat) as well as “crisp, clean, and refreshingly joyful” (Syncopated Times). Their upcoming album, “Together Again”, will be released summer 2022 following their headlining performance at Lincoln Center’s Summer for the City Festival. In 2020, they were unanimously named the WINNERS of the inaugural Count Basie Great American Swing Contest for their virtual performance of “One O’Clock Jump”.

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.
