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).  Check back as I will add any gigs I hear about. Look for the added image next to the listing. 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 ....
