The Evan Sherman Big Band returns after sell-out shows
in the Bickford Theatre and Back Deck with a delightful and surprising
program. Last summer, this group of the most exciting young jazz
artists in NYC played music that spanned 100 years and had everyone in
the parking lot on their feet! Get your tickets early for the return of
NJ’s native son, Evan Sherman and his big band!
Making their NJ and Back Deck debut, Alla Boara brings a
contemporary jazz sensibility to the ancient folk music of Italy! Alla
Boara seeks to bring recognition and new life to Italy’s diverse
history of regional folk music.
The Galvin Cello Quartet explores the limitless range of
a cello ensemble by bringing together new works from diverse cultural
backgrounds while seeking to establish the cello quartet as a core part
of the classical music world.
