That’s all the Count Basie Theatre has listed for now.  It’s a great venue to see a show, an historic 1926 theatre in downtown Red Bank, New Jersey.  Rex and I saw Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes at Count Basie one New Year’s Eve before we had kids.  We’ve also seen Pat Benatar there and, more recently, Rex’s son Trader caught Bruce Springsteen in an amazing fundraiser last May.

Count Basie Theatre, 99 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ.  Phone:  (732) 842-9000.
