Mapping out the ... Live jazz in Rochester, NY, March 8th through 14th

After the melting, there is ... Live jazz in ROC, March 1st-7th

Jazz Club imageIs winter over? I doubt it, but it sure is nice that the snow has melted. Check out the live jazz in and around Rochester over the next seven days to get some additional heat. 

We need to build a wider community of jazz in Rochester.  Help us out! Join our mailing list or following us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram....I collect as much of the live jazz in and around Rochester as I can find so you don't have to do it yourself ... right here, every Wednesday in JazzRochester. I really need your help to grow a more vibrant community for live jazz here in Rochester by sharing this post or this site with those you know who love live jazz.  Share with the buttons! Sign up to receive our posts via email (there's a link at the top of the site).  

As always, let me know if any gigs below are no longer happening, if I got something wrong wrong, or if you have heard of something that's not in these listings that I can add.   NOTE: An alert reader noticed my not so alert mislabeling of the dates below (I do realize it is not possible for a date to repeat... I hope there was no confusion).

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 and around Rochester. Click on the links (underlined words or phrases) where available in the post for more information on the gig.  Only music start times are listed, so visit or call the venue for more details about when the doors open, etc. (the websites for many of the venues are in the right panel). Check back as I will add any gigs I hear about after publication (look for the added image  graphic next to the listing). Lastly, please forgive me where these listings prove to be wrong, I rely on you, the venues and the artists to let me know when we've got bad information, so don't hesitate to let us know about such departures from reality by clicking on the Contact Us link above.
