She has performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, the Zebra Room in Harlem's famous Lenox Lounge, the legendary Blue Note, the Blue Smoke :: Jazz Standard with the Winard Harper Sextet and Dr. Billy Taylor.
Antoinette has performed with the Queens Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Jimmy Heath (and will be appearing with them again in 2010.) Antoinette was hired as a leader opposite Jr. Mance for Jazzmobile's Summer Breeze Concert Series with Houston Person for a tribute to Junior Mance with Winard Harper, Tommy James and Bill Moring. Antoinette works most regularly with Bill Easely, a brilliant and versatile reed player,who performs equally forcefully on alto, tenor, and baritone saxes as well as flute, piccolo, and clarinet.
Born and raised in Newark, Antoinette Montague released her first CD Pretty Blues in 2006, but she has had many invaluable musical experiences.
