Summer Solstice Jazz and Wine


Friday, June 21

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm



Jazz and Wine event

We are proud to partner with New Brunswick Jazz to present Swingadelic at the 2019 Summer Solstice Jazz and Wine event.

The Gardens will be closed at 1pm on June 21st to set up for the event.


Swingadelic began in 1998 as the neo-swing movement was cresting. Upright bassist Dave Post gathered his jazz & blues playing friends together to play engagements at New York City's Supper Club, Swing 46 and Windows On The World, the former restaurant atop of the World Trade Center. As the swing scene waned the band was able to turn to swing dance groups, concerts, festivals, schools and private engagements to keep active.
Swingadelic has performed at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing, NJPAC, and at many festivals, including Bele Chere (Ashville NC), MusikFest (Allentown PA) the CD 109 Jazz & Blues Festival (Red Bank, NJ) and the sanofi-aventis JazzFest (Madison NJ).

Bring a blanket or chair and join us in the Roy DeBoer Evergreen Garden at 5:30 pm. The music begins at 6:30 pm and ends at 8:30 pm. Wine from Unionville Vineyards will be available to purchase by the glass. This year Due Mari will be joining us with some of their most popular menu items from the restaurant. No outside alcoholic beverages are allowed.

The Gardens will close at 12m to get ready for this special event. No dogs will be allowed in the Evergreen Garden.

Rutgers Gardens thanks the Cook Community Alumni for their continued support of all of our events and programs.
