Williams, Adderley Jr. Trio and Hackensack’s own Matthew Whitaker Rock the House at HACPAC


HACKENSACK -- The house was "PACked" on Saturday night as residents and Jazz/R&B fans were treated to a set of unforgettable performances by Alyson Williams, Nat Adderley Jr. Trio and Hackensack's own Matthew Whitaker at the Hackensack Performing Arts Center. The second in the venue's inaugural "PAC the House" concert series, Saturday's show continued to prove the venue's promise as a cultural destination for the city and the region. 

"Matthew Whitaker rocked the house with a captivating performance at the Hackensack Performing Arts Center, and anybody who missed it, missed something special," said Hackensack Main Street Business Alliance Chairman Jerome Lombardo. "Nat Adderley Trio and Allison Williams were terrific and brought down the house at the end." 

The evening began with a performance from Whitaker, who has wowed audiences recently by tickling the ivory at high-profile appearence such as on "The Ellen Show."

"Matthew made the piano sing tonight," said Deputy Mayor David Sims. "We're all so proud of what he's accomplished already at such a young age." 

The night continued with captivating performances from Alyson Williams, who sang her hit "Just Call My Name," and the Nat Adderley Jr. Trio. 

“We were thrilled to have such talented entertainers be a part of our inaugural PAC the House series, including Hackensack’s own Matthew Whitaker,” said Mayor John Labrosse. “The shows have been very successful thus far and we hope the public will continue to come out and support the great performers we have lined up in the weeks and months to come.”
