Red Bank, NJ's Count Basie Center for the Arts has announced a series of socially distanced outdoor concerts this spring.

They'll be following COVID safety guidelines, including requiring masks, positioning tables 6' apart, disinfecting high-touch surfaces, and taking temperatures at the door. See the series site for the full list of regulations.
"From the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Basie Center has been determined to keep alive its mission to inspire, educate and entertain,” President and CEO Adam Philipson says. "We’ve put that determination into action, selling more than 30,000 tickets outdoors last summer, and creating a set of health protocols and practices we’ve used for nearly 150 ticketed events since. We are looking forward to once again providing safe, socially-distanced ‘dinner and a show’ experiences at our Concerts on the Green series. We’re grateful to our partners at Suneagles Golf Club, who share with us the commitment that the arts are a vital ingredient in our collective return to normalcy."
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 2 at 10 AM, with presales beginning Tuesday, March 30 at 10 AM.
