Get a dose of ... Live jazz around Rochester, September 23-29
Struggling, but you can still find some ... Live jazz in Rochester, October 7-13

Fall into ... Live jazz around Rochester, September 30 to October 6 (and beyond)

Jazz sign B&W

While 3 days are apparently without any, you can still find some the live jazz gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through October/November. Additionally, as you will see going forward, I'm adding selected blues gigs as I was in the past.  While these will not be comprehensive, I'll try to add those I'm sent. You'll see "(Blues)" after the listing.

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
