RIJF has an app, but for the other 356 days of the year, you have ... Live jazz in Rochester, May 26th to June 1st

20220523-180842The CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival has released its app for the 2022 Festival, which you can find out more about the app and download it for iOS and Android here. It's a great way to get your itinerary in order before the fest, which I'm starting to do (more on that later...). 

Below are the listings for live jazz (and some blues) gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days of your life, plus those I know about through the rest of June (I'll start on July when we get to June...). Please note that I will not be adding Rochester International Jazz Festival appearances by local jazz musicians in these listings post. As in the past, I will do a special preview post prior to the festival that will bring together all of the appearances at RIJF by local jazz musicians and groups, but will otherwise detail the gigs outside the festival for those who won't be appearing.

Join the Jazz Rochester "Street Team" ... the first JazzRochester "merch"

JR_Tshirt_meinTJust before the pandemic shut everything down, I had over 400 JazzRochester T-Shirts created with dreams of building a "street-team" out there during the Rochester International Jazz Festival and throughout the other 356 days of the year. Friends of the site could let others know where they could find their live jazz around Rochester.  You know the rest of the story (or have similar stories yourselves)... They've been sitting in bins in my closet ever since.  So... can I interest you in taking one or more of these things off my hands?  
 
Don't let my poor choice in models stop you ... Get more information on the t-shirts and maybe purchase one on the JazzRochester Merch page, which is linked to at the top of the site.  I'd really appreciate your support (and need the closet space)!
