Highlights of the 16th Edition of the XRIJF coming in June
For now it's dwindling, but there is ... Live jazz in ROC, April 6-12

You can find it here ... Live jazz in ROC, March 30th to April 5th

Jazz Sign B&WIt's a bit light this coming week, but here are the next seven days of live jazz. I'm heading out to hear the Joe Fielder Quintet tomorrow and perhaps the Levin Brothers on Saturday.  If you see me, come up and say hi!

Would you like to help grow a more vibrant jazz community for live jazz here in Rochester the other 356 days of the year?  Please give me a hand in helping out with that and share this post or this site. Use the buttons! Find out all the ways to get you some JazzRochester goodness by checking out my post laying it out for you.  

As always, let me know if any gigs below are no longer happening, if I got something wrong wrong, or if you have heard of something that's not in these listings so I can add it.

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 these listings prove to be wrong, I rely on you, the venues and the artists to let me know when we've got bad information, so don't hesitate to let us know about such departures from reality by clicking on the Contact Us link above.
