After you dig out of the snow in ROC, there is still some ... live jazz in Rochester, February 18-24
So, wanna hear some ... live jazz in Rochester, March 3-9?

As we get ready to leap into March there is ... Live jazz in Rochester, February 25th to March 2nd

jazz club signYes, it's a leap year and how do we know?  Harold Danko has his quadrennial Leap Year concert.  It's always a lot of fun and is on Monday, of course. Also recommend you come out to Lovin Cup on Sunday to catch the Ethnic Arts Ensemble. I'm so there...  There's some new stuff added to the Heads Up this week to check out, too.

If you want to get these listings posts (and other posts I do occasionally) in your email, hit the image of Jazz@Rochester coming out of an envelope (yes, that's what it's supposed to be ... not my best effort....) in the middle column and follow the directions.  I won't spam you or share your email with anyone. Or, you can check out the other ways to connect with Jazz@Rochester by clicking on the icons above that image.

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. As always, 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.
