While "Delta" means change, it also means it will be harder to find ... Live jazz in ROC, August 19-25
What is that I hear? ... Live jazz in ROC from September 2-8

Can you believe it? There is ... Live jazz around Rochester, August 26th through September 1

Find Live Jazz Here image

Below are the live jazz gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus  those I know about through the last few days left in August and into September/October.  I'll continue my optimistic view 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  or contact the venue before you go. 

HELP ME! If you hear about live jazz around ROC 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.
