Catch Jersey’s native son, Evan Sherman with his big band for a special appearance between his international tours! Evan returns to the Back Deck after two years of SOLD-OUT performances featuring a multi-generational 16-piece band of jazz veterans and the most dynamic young artists. Evan’s arrangements for music that spans a musical legacy of 100 years are expertly played by his ensemble in a concert that feels more like a party that extends from the stage to the back of the parking lot!

American drummer, bandleader, and arranger Evan Sherman (b.1993) has recorded and toured internationally in the bands of Ron Carter, Cyrus Chestnut, Roy Hargrove, Jimmy Heath, Branford & Wynton Marsalis, the Dizzy Gillespie All-Stars & Samara Joy. Since 2014, the Evan Sherman Big Band is a 16-piece ensemble of jazz veterans and New York’s most dynamic young musicians. Praised in the West Australian as “big band heroes”, they have headlined at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Rainbow Room, Ginny’s Supper Club in Harlem, The Django in TriBeca, Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, Caramoor Jazz Festival, SteelStacks (PA), and the Perth International Arts Festival (Australia).

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.
