Highland Lakes

Country Club and Community Association

Concert Series

The ongoing mission of the Highland Lakes Concert Series is to invite established, critically acclaimed musicians, comedians, and performance artists on tour in the New York metropolitan area to perform at the Clubhouse’s Seckler Stage throughout the year. The Concert Series is spearheaded by community members who have decades of professional experience in the entertainment industry (booking, technical, administrative and maintenance). They leverage their expertise and industry relationships to bring performers to Highland Lakes that would not likely be passing through otherwise.  (Read what Inside NJ magazine thinks about it.)

Tickets for Concert Series events will be made available in advance to members-in-good-standing and at the door on a first-come, first-served basis—if members do not purchase all available tickets to a given event, additional tickets to that event may be made available to the general public at the door to help support costs. Event capacity is limited to the rated occupancy of the Seckler and Craft rooms at the Clubhouse, and the maximum capacity will vary from show to show depending on how seating is organized.

Bands and artists interested in potentially performing as an opening act at Seckler Stage should submit electronic press kits, tour dates, press clippings, social media links and stage plot information to concertseries@hlcc.org. Club members interested in receiving updates and notification about Concert Series news and upcoming events, and/or learning how they can volunteer or assist are invited to contact concertseries@hlcc.org.


Tickets to all upcoming shows are available now in the Club Office (973-764-4366), or by calling 973-271-9780. Unless otherwise noted, doors open at 7 pm, and shows start at 8 pm.

June 17 – Peter Case is a Grammy-nominated American singer-songwriter and guitarist whose multi-decade career has ranged from front man of ’80s jangle pop heroes the Plimsouls to full-throated band leader and solo acoustic troubadour. With a knack for great melodic storytelling and blessed with a golden throat, Case’s appearance on Seckler Stage promises to be nothing short of memorable. To hear his music, go to http://petercase.com/music/.

July 22 – The incredible Danny Bacher returns to Highland Lakes with his band to pay homage to Frank Sinatra along with the Three Swingin’ Louis’: Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan, and Louis Prima (and perhaps a little Sammy Davis Jr. thrown in for good measure). To hear his music, go to www.jwpjazz.com/danny_bacher.html.

September 30 –The Trashcan Sinatras will return to Highland Lakes on Saturday, September 30, to perform as a three-piece acoustic lineup on Seckler Stage during their upcoming US tour celebrating their 30th anniversary as a band. The show will consist of two unique sets built on over 100 songs written from the band’s 1990 debut, Cake, through last year’s Wild Pendulum, and fans should expect to hear some covers, too. Although the band often delves into its back catalog for obscurities, particularly during acoustic tours, many songs have never been played live. And others may never be played again. “We will be playing some songs live that we have never attempted before, so in some ways, it’s a tightrope walk for us” says Douglas.” But these songs are what we have done with our lives, so I accept the challenge and will try to not look down. Tickets are for $20 for members-in-good standing and their guests, $25 for non-members.

October 21 – Seckler Stage welcomes Lisa Loeb, a Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter who started her career with the platinum-selling #1 hit song, “Stay (I Missed You),” from the film Reality Bites (it was the first #1 single for an artist without a recording contract). Her studio albums include two back-to-back albums that were certified Gold—Tails, and the Grammy-nominated Firecracker. Tickets are for $25 for members-in-good standing and their guests, $30 for non-members.
