OK, I'm giving up and taking the Bistro 135 off my list of venues. Their site remains up, but there is no indication of status.  If anyone has heard the skinny on what happened (I've heard several different stories...), send me an email through the Contact Us button above. By the way, if you think another venue should be on the list have them contact me that way, too.

Below you will find the next seven days of live jazz in and around Rochester.

We've compiled these listings from information obtained from our own knowledge of the jazz scene in and around Rochester, the performing artists themselves and other sources. The aim is to give you a one-stop place to find all your live jazz in Rochester.
