Hey, there's gotta be more jazz out there? (Jazz in ROC, January 15-21, 2015)

I don't know, but City, one of the sources that I use in addition to direct communication from the artists for jazz listings is really drying up, with mostly repeating gigs (who knows if some of these gigs are still going on.... of course you can let me know!) and less than one page of new listings. I hope this is temporary not a reflection of the new reality! I would welcome a comment below if you know different...

Open the link below (if you're not reading this in an email) to find the live jazz in and around the ROC for the next seven days...

Heads Up ... Look for these Jazz Gigs and Special Jazz Events in the Future

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. Click on the links (underlined words or phrases) where available in the post for more information on the gig.  Only start times are listed, so visit or call the venue for more details (the websites for many of the venues are in the right panel). Lastly, please forgive any discrepancies with reality.  Let us know about such departures from reality if you can by clicking on the Contact Us button above ....

The scene is pretty down right now Greg. This is usually a slow time of the year but there just isn't many venues right now.
I can tell you Bob Sneider, Dan Vitale and I are playing at Bernunzio's backing saxophonist Dave Glasser on February 7th. Not sure of the time but I will let you know.

Thanks, Mike! Let me know via email of any gigs you have. Also, please check out the tab for Rochester Jazz Artists and sign up for my separate email list.
