Summer Solstice Jazz and Wine
June 21, 2019 | 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Rutgers Gardens is proud to partner with New Brunswick Jazz to present Summer Solstice Jazz and Wine featuring Swingadelic 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.
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. Due Mari will be joining us with some of their most popular menu items from the restaurant. No outside alcoholic beverages or food are allowed.
The Gardens will close at 12 pm to get ready for this special event. No dogs will be allowed in the Evergreen Garden.
