Despite Omicron there is still ... Live jazz around Rochester, January 6-12

Believe it or not, there is still ... Live jazz around ROC, January 13-19

For what its worth as we all recalculate our risks during the current surge of COVID, below are the limited number of live jazz gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through the rest of January and into February.  Let's hope this surge passes soon. If you go out, be safe and check with the venue about protocols. I also suggest you call venues before heading out (the websites for some of them are available in the right panel of the blog... for those of you reading the email you have to come to the site to find the "right panel").  Please let me know about anything I may have missed or that you know have been cancelled. I'll try to note cancellations as well.

We've compiled these gig and event 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 where available in the post for more information on the gig or tickets where needed. 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).
