I'm not with you, but there's still ... live jazz in Rochester, February 11-17
As we get ready to leap into March there is ... Live jazz in Rochester, February 25th to March 2nd

After you dig out of the snow in ROC, there is still some ... live jazz in Rochester, February 18-24

Andy's jazz club sign

I managed to miss the big snow (much to my wife's consternation, who had to dig out), but heading back to town now from the relative warmth of Wichita, Kansas. Some extra time in O'Hare, so banging out a post.  While it is pretty light (and has been for awhile), you can find some live jazz out there.  

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.
