John P. Stevens HS Jazz Band Extravaganza

The J.P. Stevens HS Band Program presents an Evening of Jazz in Edison!

On Friday, April 20th, the J.P. Stevens Band Program will present a Jazz Band Festival like no other featuring a performance of the Stan Kenton Legacy Band at 8:00 pm at the J.P. Stevens High School


Tickets are $15 for adults & $10 for students & senior citizens and can be purchased by calling our band room at 732-452-2808 or through the following link: Paypal


We will have a "will-call" setup on the night of the concert to pick up your reserved tickets at that time.


The Stan Kenton Legacy Band, directed by Mike Vax, consists of the alumni of top name jazz bands such as the Maynard Ferguson Orchestra and the Buddy Rich Band. These top musicians come together every year to tour the United States just like the days of the Big Band era. They perform in high schools and colleges as part of their commitment to jazz education.


Dinner will be available in the cafeteria prior to the concert. Local residents are invited to come out and enjoy an evening of top quality jazz right here in our own community. All proceeds benefit the John P. Stevens Band program.
