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 and around 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 after publication. Look for the added image  graphic next to the listing. Lastly, please forgive me where my listings prove to be wrong, I rely on you, the venues and the artists to let me know when I'm wrong, so don't hesitate to let us know about such departures from reality if you can by clicking on the Contact Us link above.

My sincere condolences on your father's passing. My wife and I went through this ourselves with her father recently which ended earlier this year. In fact, we unexpectedly spent a good deal of our time at January's Winter Jazz Fest in NYC planning her return to her home town so that she could be there at his side at the end. And she was.

PS The community of Studios that includes mine is having a First Friday event which includes Jazz tomorrow night (11/4/2016) from 6:00-9:00 pm. We are at RoCo Upstairs which is directly above RoCo, the Rochester Contemporary Art Center at 137 East Avenue, Rochester (14604) Music will start around 6:30 and will be provided by The Charlie Mitchell Group featuring Brian Williams.
