Find Live Jazz Here over keyboard

It's a bit light, but 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 the month. I hope to start adding October gigs soon. 

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, or check out the venue's website in the right panel if there. Only music start times are listed, so visit or call the venue for more details about when the doors open, etc. Let me know if I have anything wrong.
