Got to get out for some ... Live jazz in Rochester, March 10-16
It's that time again ... XRIJF announces the 2016 festival lineup

Do you want to hear... live jazz in Rochester, March 17-23?

jazz with one-way sign

Of course you do....  Hope to see some of you out over the next seven days as I'm planning on hitting at least two gigs.

Your local jazz station Jazz 90.1 WGMC's Spring Pledge Drive started on the 14th. You can throw them a few ducats through this link here.

If you want to get these listings posts (and the 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.
