Named a 2024 Jazz Hero by the Jazz Journalists Association, Newark’s own Antoinette Montague returns to the Back Deck to honor the 125th birthday of the great Duke Ellington, as well as the 100th birthday of another great vocalist from Newark, Sarah Vaughan. Joined by a stellar band, and tap dance sensation, A.C. Lincoln, Antoinette transforms the Back Deck into a party befitting the birthdays of two of the greatest artists of the 20th century.

Equal parts artist and activist, Antoinette is the CEO of the non-profit Jazz Woman to the Rescue, providing musical instruments to young people in need. She is a board member of The Duke Ellington Center for the Arts and advisory board chair for International Women in Jazz as well as WBGO as well as hosting a radio program on WHCR.

Bring your own chairs and refreshments and enjoy live entertainment atop the Morris Museum’s elevated parking deck. Patrons are invited to arrive as early as 6:00 PM to set up and enjoy refreshments and stunning sunsets on The Back Deck.

Tickets are $53 for an 8’x8’ block that accommodates up to two patrons or $28 for a block that accommodates one patron. In the event of inclement weather, outdoor performances will be held inside the Museum’s Bickford Theatre as general admission.

Thank you for your support!

Leadership Support for the Lot of Strings Concert Series is provided by Will and Mary Leland and Lot of Strings founding donor, F. Gary Knapp.
