Jazz Club sign

Well, I hope you all got out to FCD and the other great hits during the past week. I managed to miss them all due to the weather not cooperating with my schedule, fatigue, etc.  

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! Sign up to receive our posts via email! 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.  You can get more information about the venue by following the links in the right column of the site (if I have one... if I don't I'll try to provide one or an address). The next seven days of jazz in and around Rochester are below....
