Monday, January 12, 8 PM. We all look forward to Bucky Pizzarelli's birthdays, which the Bickford has hosted for years. The jazz guitar icon has a career that spans the jazz, swing and modern eras, and still keeps a full schedule of appearances, even at an advanced age. This year he's invited his longtime friend Jerry Bruno to share the honors and play bass. Jerry was born a day later (but a few years earlier) than Bucky, and still plays with him often. The rest of the band is much younger. Ed Laub joins Bucky on a second guitar, and sings too. Jay Dittimo keeps them all in time behind the drum set. This could be a very full room, so order your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

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 2 Groundhog Day Jam. The annual excuse to get some terrific talents together in the middle of winter. Herb Gardner leads the all-star cast.

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.

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."
