Midweek Jazz Features Clarinetist Dennis Lichtman’s Queensboro Five at Grunin Center

Multi-instrumentalist – mainly clarinet, fiddle, and mandolin (although he’s been known to take a turn on the banjo, saxophone, guitar!) Dennis Lichtman’s Queensboro Five takes the Grunin Center Main Stage on Wednesday, March 28 at 8:00 p.m., Ocean County College, College Drive, Toms River, NJ.  Please use Parking Lot #2. Tickets: $24-$20. Purchase tickets online, call 732-255-0500, or visit the Box Office, Mon-Fri, 10am-5pm.

Though cities like Harlem and Chicago are often most associated with “The Golden Age of Jazz,” it was Queens, New York, that was home to more jazz musicians per square mile than anywhere else in the United States. Clarinetist Dennis Lichtman, leader of the fabled Mona’s jam session in New York City, will be bringing an all-star quintet to pay tribute to past denizens of Queens such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Bix Beiderbecke, and many more!

Upcoming Jazz Performances at the Grunin Center:

Come hear acclaimed artists play classic jazz and swing! The “Grunin Presents” and “MidWeek Jazz” lineup features big-name stars along with up-and-coming talent of local, national, and international acclaim.
