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.

August 11 – What do Miles Davis, Chaka Khan, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Grover Washington Jr., George Benson, and Herb Alpert all have in common? Aside from a pile of Grammys and platinum-records between them, they are also just some artists who have played with keyboardist Jason Miles.

Miles and Miles: Jason Miles with Miles Davis

Highland Lakes is excited to welcome Miles—a Grammy Award winner and four-time nominee in his own right—to Seckler Stage for a night of music and colorful stories about his experiences with some of music’s greatest luminaries.

Miles, who was actually a Highland Lakes resident back in the early 70s, will be joined onstage by drummer Richie Morales (Brecker Brothers, Spyro Gyra, Mike Stern) and bassist Buster Hemphill (Blood Sweat and Tears) to play music from his two most recent records, “Kind of New” and “Blue is Paris,” as well as some solo pieces he plans to record later in August for his first solo piano CD. (“Kind of New” made many “best of the year” lists in 2016 with Jazziz Magazine citing it as the second best album of the year. Its follow-up, “Blue is Paris,” is dedicated to victims of the November 13, 2015 terror attacks in Paris.)
