A tonic for my soul, if not my body ... JazzRochester's 2022 Rochester International Jazz Festival
If you're looking for ... Live jazz around Rochester, NY, July 14-20, 2022

This is where to find ... Live jazz around ROC, July 7-13 (and beyond)

Live ROC Jazz over piano keys

Below are the listings for live jazz (and some blues) gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through the rest of July. I'll start adding August dates soon. Let me know if I have anything wrong by using the Contact Us link above. As I've noted, we compile 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).

Thanks for good info in one spot! I'm new to the area and always found a good jam session is the best way to find other players. Any suggestions? Thanks!
