Where can you find? ... Live jazz in ROC, July 13th-19th

Where to find live jazz in and around ROC the other 356 days of the year ... including July 6th-12th

JazzRochesterPromoYes, that would be right here.  Please give me a hand in growing a more vibrant jazz community for live jazz here in Rochester during the 356 days of the year that XRIJF is not in town by sharing this post or this site with those you know love live jazz. 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....

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.

Brockport Big Band plays in the Fairport Gazebo Thursday July 13 at 7pm.
I've heard Jon Seiger no longer plays at Wegmans on Thursdays, but I haven't been there to confirm that.
