Monday, February 2, 8 PM. It is time once again to get some terrific talents together in the middle of winter. This is the 14th year that this formula has been used, and the band roster tells you why it has been a perennial success—even outgrowing its original home! Herb Gardner organizes things, leads from either piano or trombone, and invites back both Sarah Gardner and Abbie Gardner to sing. The other magnets in the band are (cornet), Joe Licari (clarinet), James Chirillo (guitar), Mike Weatherly (bass) and Robbie Scott (drums).

The New Jersey Jazz Society is a proud co-sponsor of Jazz at the Bickford Theater.

Weekday concerts at The Bickford are one long set, from 8 to 9:30 PM, allowing working people to attend and still get home at a decent hour. The tab is reasonable too: only $15 in advance, $18 at the door. Pick up your prepaid tickets in the express line that night (suggested), or have them mailed for $1 per order (if you insist). Ticket info below.


All concerts start 8 pm. Ticket info below.
Monday. February 17 Jazz Lobsters Big Band. The 18 piece band returns, with a new program of hard-driving music.

Tuesday, March 10. Bix Beiderbecke Birthday Bash. Mike Davis leads this annual tribute, and Dan Levinson is in attendance with B-melody sax and clarinet.

Monday. March 30 Geoff Gallante. Fourteen year old trumpet sensation.


Tickets: $15 in advance, $18 at the door. Advance price available until 5 PM on the day of the show. Buying ahead of time, by phone, using a credit card, will shorten the lines...and prevent disappointment if there's a sellout. Pick up your prepaid tickets in the express line that night (suggested), or have them mailed for $1 per order (if you insist).
Box office: (973) 971-3706. The box office can also provide information, directions, or a simple "jazz map."
Directions: On Columbia Turnpike/Road (County Road 510) at the corner of Normandy Heights Road, east of downtown Morristown, NJ. Near Interstate 287 and the Route 24 expressway. Detailed directions to Morris Museum HERE.
