It's that time of year again! ... Club Passes go on sale Friday for the 2018 XRIJF

image from www.rochesterjazz.comThe Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival announced on Tuesday that the Club Pass for the 2018 XRIJF, June 22nd-30th will go on sale at 10:00 am on Friday morning.  The Club Pass can give festival-goers significant savings over purchasing individual show tickets and an opportunity to access up to 225 Club Pass shows at 12 different venues during the XRIJF. 

While everyone knows that people sometimes share their passes with their significant other or a friend, it has always been contrary to the ticket's terms of use.  After the results of a recent survey showed that patrons clearly wanted a shareable option (following last year's flirtation with putting names and pictures on everyone's pass), the XRIJF has created one.  With these options, they are encouraging people to share both the cost and use of the pass and, if you can't use it for all 3 or 9 days, you can  share with family, friends, clients, customers and business associates. So here is the basics for the Club Pass options starting this year (Get the full details and buy your pass on the XRIJF website): 

  • Personal 3 and 9-day passes. For single person use only, cannot be shared. Your photo (but no name) will be printed on the pass. This will be same price as it has been for past six XRIJFs, running from $174 to $204 for the 9-day pass and from $144 to $184 for the 3-day pass, depending on when you buy it, plus the $6 service charge.
  • Shareable 3 and 9-day passes. These can be shared or transferred. No photos or names will appear on the shareable passes. These will set you back from $204 to $244 for the 9-day pass and from $174 to $194 for the 3-day pass, depending on when you buy it, plus the $6 service charge.

In other XRIJF news, there are some venue changes coming in 2018. New this year will be the newly renovated Temple Building, a 1200-person capacity hall with 25 shows over eight days, June 22, 23, 25-30. I knew that one was coming, but it sure looks like it will be a great venue.  The Lyric Theatre venue will not be returning as a venue next year and the Little Theatre will take a one-year hiatus from XRIJF due to renovations.
