Jazz In January at Centenary College
2009 will be the sixth year of Jazz at Centenary College in Hackettstown, NJ. It all started in July of 2004 with a series of four concerts during July featuring great jazz players in mainstream, Dixieland, Latin and Jazz vocalists providing a wide variety of Jazz that appeals to a wide audience.
The January series of three concerts is held in the Whitney Chapel, which has seating for 400 people, and this venue has wonderful acoustics. There is open seating with main floor and balcony seating.
Coyne Enterprises produces these concerts but all proceeds go to benefit the Centenary Stage Company. Our concept is to present great Jazz musicians in an entertaining way. In fact our tag line is... "It's not just Jazz, It's great entertainment!" Some of the great Jazz musicians that have appeared at Centenary include: Bucky Pizzarelli, Phil Woods, Urbie Green, Warren Vache, Diva Jazz all womans Big Band, Bill Mays, Joe Locke, Jay Leonhardt, Smith Street Society Band, Harry Allen, Joe Cohn, David ‘Fathead' Newman, & many more.
Centenary College is easy to get to and is located on Jefferson Street in Hackettstown, NJ. Their website has detailed information on each concert, ticket information with easy ordering and directions to the College.
