For the past several years, Josh Duffee and his Big Band have played to standing room-only indoor crowds at the Northwoods Arts Council’s annual two-day music festival. This year, the world-renowned percussionist is mixing it up by bringing his four-piece jazz quartet to the Birch Lake Park pavilion in Hackensack.

This outdoor concert will feature songs from the 1920s-1960s, with a few '80s songs.

The concert will be held from 5-7 p.m. Saturday, July 10. Bring lawn chairs, blankets and refreshments to enjoy the music and ambience of an outdoor setting. There’s no cost to attend, but free-will donations will be gratefully accepted.

The Northwoods Arts Council has been “Bringing the Arts to Life” in the area for 26 years and is pleased to sponsor this concert. The NAC thanks the Five Wings Arts Council, Sourcewell, Hackensack Lions Club, Itasca-Mantrap Co-op and the Hackensack Lakes Area Community Foundation for their generous support in making the NAC’s Lakeside Concert Series a possibility.
