JOE PETERSON QUARTET

Thursday, November 30
7:00pm

Our monthly jazz night at the Mansion. Doors at 6:45pm. $15, Bring a dish or drink to share.

Trio Joe (joe3) is a group of three jazz musicians named 'Joe‘ that formed a little more then five years ago. Joe Accisano is the guitarist, Joe Brown Jr. is the drummer and Joe Peterson is the upright bass player. The musicians had all seen and worked with one another in various groups all across New Jersey and New York when they were all just beginning their musical journeys. Now, several years later, they are all family mend they still have the same passion for their music. This passion has allowed them to create several recordings together. It has also awarded them many opportunities to perform music that they love in venues throughout the Trip-State area. 

 

 

HISTORIC JERSEY JOURNEY

Sunday, December 17
starting at 9:00am

 Holiday fun and history in Paterson

Our next Historic jersey Journey will be a triple play of attractions in Paterson, including waterfalls, a castle decked out in holiday splendor and a museum on Sunday, Dec. 17.

Paterson's waterfalls, 77 feet high on Passaic River, are among the nation's largest. The site played a significant role in New Jersey's industrial development and today is the showpiece of Great Falls National Historic Park.

Lambert Castle is one of our state's best hidden historic gems. Built by silk manufacturer Catholina Lambert in 1892, it mimics a British castle. The property includes Italianate gardens, art galleries and an observation tower with a spectacular view in Garret Mountain Reservation.

The American Labor Museum Botto House National Landmark preserves the lifestyle of an immigrant family of the early 1900s. The home, once owned by a silk mill worker, became a haven for free speech and assembly of laborers. Today, it focuses on the history of organized labor and contemporary workers' issues.

We'll meet at the Strauss Mansion, 27 Prospect Circle, for breakfast at 9a.m., then head by bus at 9:45am to Passaic County. Cost is $50. Space is limited so advanced registration, including payment, is required. Deadline for signup is  December 5 . Tickets available in the shop tab..
