Juliana Areias – Bossa Nova Baby
Friday, June 15, 8:00PM
This Australian-based Brazilian singer-songwriter draws on traditional bossa-nova rhythms to create a contemporary Latin Jazz style which has made her a hit down under. Her debut CD “Bossa Nova Baby” received multiple nominations for The Western Australian Music Awards and has been receiving considerable air play around the world. This Morristown appearance is part of her debut US tour and marks the official launch of her CD in the United States.
She has performed at many major venues including Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Auckland Festival, and the legendary Beco das Garrafas in Rio. Her Bickford Theatre debut will celebrate 60 years of the Bossa Nova and include new arrangements of classic bossa and samba hits.
Juliana’s show is comprised of original songs from her internationally-acclaimed debut CD as well as a selection of exclusive arrangements of bossa classics and samba hits such as “The Girl from Ipanema,” “Mas que Nada,” and “Water of March.” She will be backed by a quintet led by Wesley lima de Amorim (guitar) and includes: Jorge Continentino (sax/flute), Itaiguara Brandão (bass), Oriente Lopez (piano), and Samuel Martinelle (drums).

Dance Party with Louis Prima, Jr.
and The Witnesses
Thursday, August 16, 2018, 7:30PM
The son of the great Louis Prima brings a high-energy, fun show to every venue. His concert at the Bickford Theatre in 2016 was a smash hit. He was also a sensation at last summer’s Morristown’s Jazz & Blues Festival.
The band performs many of his dad’s most famous songs including “Sing Sing Sing,” “Just a Gigilo,” and “Jump Jive an’ Wail” but also draws on the hits of other artists from the 1950’s as well as several originals.
