Below are the live jazz gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus  those I know about through the rest of August and into September/October. Despite the dwindling listings that are clearly evident below (see last week's post), I'll continue my optimism and list those live jazz gigs that we've heard about; however, with everything going on pandemic-wise things may change day by day, so check here (I'll strike out if I hear something is cancelled) or contact the venue before you go. 

HELP ME! If you hear about live jazz that I haven't added below or something I have listed has changed, please drop me a line (using the Contact Us link above or otherwise). If you're a jazz musician and haven't signed up for my local jazz musician's email list, click here. Venues that want to get on my list for them should click here.
