We are your source for ... Live jazz in ROC, January 24-30
It's out there if you look hard enough ... Live jazz in ROC, February 7-13

Cold enough for you? If you brave it, you can get warmer with some ... Live jazz in ROC, January 31st to February 6th

Fullsizeoutput_1341It is really cold out there and of little comfort that it is worse in the Midwest.  Please try to stay warm and keep all your fingers.  If you're going out anyway, until the cold abates, it is probably a good idea to call the venue before you go out. As if they knew it was coming, it's a little light the coming seven days anyway....

Every Wednesday, every week, you'll find the next seven days of jazz in and around Rochester right here on JazzRochester. Sign up for our email list to get your local jazz goodness every week (plus, whatever else I publish from time to time).  Check us out on social media (links at the top of the column to the right). Whatever floats your boat....

Start here, but if you hear about something that I haven't added below, please drop me a line (use the Contact Us link above),  give me the deets and I'll add it. As always, let me know if any gigs below are not happening or if I got something wrong. Sh*t happens and I sometimes get it wrong.

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 music start times are listed, so visit or call the venue for more details about when the doors open, etc. (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.
