Live jazz in and around Rochester ... the Pandemic Edition

There is actually some live jazz... inside ... at 75 Stutson Street in Charlotte

image from lh3.googleusercontent.comNo, it's not streaming... it's live!  Opening just before the pandemic caused closures of jazz venues throughout the area, the 75 Stutson Street multi-event facility, located in an old church at that namesake address in Charlotte, is dipping its toes into presenting jazz regularly on Thursdays.

So far the owners have scheduled a series of mostly jazz and blues bands, many who have not had a chance to gig before a live audience in quite some time. Here is who will be playing in the next few weeks:

  • Bill Tiberio Band (September 24th)
  • Soul Chameleon (October 1st)
  • Jimmie Highsmith Jr. (October 8th)
  • Laura Dubin October 15th)
  • Uptown Groove Quartet (October 22nd)
  • Blonde Over Boo (October 29th)
  • Bill Schmitt and the Bluesmasters (November 5th)
  • Paradigm Shift (November 19th) 

There are other concerts scheduled into December as well... well one can hope. Of course, Covid-19 guidelines will be in-place. The venue is limited to 50 patrons, seated in a HEPA filtrated Auditorium, cabaret style and socially distanced as you can see in the image. Masks are required unless seated at a table. 

Doors open at 7:30 pm. The concert will be from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm. There is a $20 suggested donation. Call 615-4551 for reservations, which are suggested due to the limited seating.
