Believe it or not, but there is ... Live jazz around Rochester, April 21-27, 2022
There's got to be some more ... Live jazz in Rochester, May 5-11, 2022

There is only one way to ... Live jazz in and around Rochester, April 28th to May 4th

One-way sign in front of wall with Live Jazz written on the wall to the left

Well, there are many ways, but coming here is a good idea... Below are the listings for live jazz (and some blues) gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus a bunch I know about through the rest of May. I'm still considering how I will do these listings in June due to the RIJF and as things change pandemic-wise, but for now anticipate I will start adding June gigs next week, assuming I find some.  

Please let me know about anything I may have missed or that you know have been cancelled. I 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").
