(Morristown, NJ) – Following the sold-out opening for Bickford Summer Jazzfest, the party continued on July 24 and August 3. The hot swinging jazz was combined with the area’s best food trucks on-site for tailgate picnics before each concert.
Before the concert, everyone enjoyed a tailgate picnic with the acclaimed Dark Side of the Moo, Yummy Food Truck, and Cupcake Carnivale. Cupcake Carnivale is consistently rated as one of the top food trucks in the whole country and Zagat’s put them on the list of Top Ten Food Trucks You Must Try in the whole country.
Bickford Summer Jazzfest concluded on Thursday, August 3, with Danny Bacher & Friends featuring a new young talent on the swing jazz scene, sax player and vocalist Danny Bacher. His extensive theater experience made him an engaging stage presence where he mixed his silky smooth singing with hot jazz saxophone and comedic storytelling. Danny brought with him an equally talented group of musicians including drummer Mark McLean, pianist Alan Farnham, bassist Dean Johnson, and saxophonist Charlie Caranicas.
Before each concert, the Bickford Theatre had food trucks on-site so concert patrons could enjoy a tailgating picnic prior to the music. The food trucks were also open to the general public so everyone was invited to the picnic.
