Where you will find ... live jazz in Rochester, January 14-20, 2016
A new club with an old name is bringing more ... jazz in Rochester, January 28-February 3

Let's hit the (jazz) club ... live jazz in Rochester, January 21-27

Jazz Club SignOK, I admit it, the headline is a bit aspirational given there are no jazz clubs in Rochester proper (that's why it's in parens). 

After the "fold" (click the link if there is one for you) you will find the next seven days of live jazz in and around Rochester. Let me know if any regular gigs below are no longer happening or if you have heard of anything that's not in the listings. Check back later in the week for stragglers.

Please give us some love and help get the word out about Jazz@Rochester! Do you know someone who loves going out to hear live jazz? Share this site and suggest they join us here, or on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. If they prefer, they can sign up to get our posts via email by clicking on the image in the middle column.
