Bickford Theater Schedule
Return to NJJS
Wednesday, April 8, 8 PM. At last! Originally booked for December and postponed by stormy weather, this vaudeville-type show was a big hit the first time out. Now pianist Jesse Gelber and full-throated vocalist Kate Manning finally make their requested return visit. Rapidly-paced ragtime, stride, early jazz favorites and vintage pop tunes sell out several NYC rooms on a regular basis.



The New Jersey Jazz Society is a proud co-sponsor of Jazz for Shore.

Midweek Jazz concerts are one long set, from 8 to 9:30 PM, allowing working people to attend and still get home at a decent hour. Request tickets, directions from the OCC Box Office at (732) 255-0500. More info below.
