As the current surge starts to slow, there is some ... Live jazz around Rochester, January 20-26

Find Live Jazz Here image

As we continue to recalculate our risks during the current surge of COVID, below are a limited number of live jazz (and some blues) gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through the rest of January and into February.  While the curve is heading back down, it's still pretty high. 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.

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.

Live ROC Jazz over piano keys image

Welcome to live jazz in Rochester for 2022! For what its worth as we all recalculate our risks, 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 December, January and into February. 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").  Please let me know about anything I may have missed or that you know have been cancelled.

Just so you know that I didn't miss it entirely, I must have had too much to drink before doing last week's post (or perhaps just exhausted from my vacation exertions... ha!) as I totally messed up the dates on the listings after January 1. Not a good sign that no one else noticed and let me know of my error....

2021? See ya! ... Live jazz in and around ROC, December 30th to January 5th

Live Jazz in ROC with Blue Note LP on turntableI'm glad to see the backside of 2021 and looking forward to the possibility that we'll return to some semblance of normal after the current surge of COVID.  I'm afraid it's still very light out there live jazz-wise.  That is, of course, likely the result of the holidays, but it's also people playing it safe. Can't blame 'em.  

Below are the gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through the rest of December, January and into February. I suggest you call venues before heading out (many 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").  Let me know about anything I may have missed (especially New Years Eve events that are open to the public), or those that you know have been cancelled.

Find Live Jazz Here and keyboard imageGreat album if you haven't heard it.  I'm afraid it's very light out there.  That's of course mostly the result of the holiday, but I'm also seeing cancellations starting to pop up and fewer listings coming in from musicians and venues as everyone begins to tighten down the hatches for our next bout with the coronavirus.  Below are the gigs in and around Rochester for the next seven days, plus those I know about through the rest of December and into January. I suggest you call venues before heading out (many 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"). 

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season full of family and great times (and possibly some jazz)!

Throwing caution to the wind, I've decided to reboot the listings post! Rochester and our neck of the woods is opening up and restrictions are being dropped.

However, while it appears I may have started a bit early based on the empty dates below, I'm filling that out with the longer "Heads Up" portion of the post, which I've adapted to give our local jazz musicians as much coverage as possible once they have a gig scheduled (and let me know about it).  This is going to be a work in progress so bear with me.

Live jazz in and around Rochester ... the Pandemic Edition

FInd Live Jazz HereThere is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has been a kick in the head for the jazz scene in Rochester.  I haven't published a regular Wednesday listings post since March 11, 2020.  

I'll try to add new gigs as I hear about them. I'm adding both live events and livestream events.  Please let me know if you hear about something that I haven't added below, please drop me a line (using the Contact Us link above or otherwise), give me the details, and I'll add it to this post. If you're receiving JazzRochester by email, you won't see  all of the updates in a new email as usual, so check back here if you want to know what's out there. Some will not be live jazz, but streaming by local jazz musicians.

If you can and feel safe, get out and support live jazz (and jazz musicians) and other music. Venues are doing their best to keep you, the artists and their staff safe.

There is actually some live jazz... inside ... at 75 Stutson Street in Charlotte

image from lh3.googleusercontent.comNo, it's not streaming... it's live!  Opening just before the pandemic caused closures of jazz venues throughout the area, the 75 Stutson Street multi-event facility, located in an old church at that namesake address in Charlotte, is dipping its toes into presenting jazz regularly on Thursdays.

So far the owners have scheduled a series of mostly jazz and blues bands, many who have not had a chance to gig before a live audience in quite some time. Here is who will be playing in the next few weeks:

  • Bill Tiberio Band (September 24th)
  • Soul Chameleon (October 1st)
  • Jimmie Highsmith Jr. (October 8th)
  • Laura Dubin October 15th)
  • Uptown Groove Quartet (October 22nd)
  • Blonde Over Boo (October 29th)
  • Bill Schmitt and the Bluesmasters (November 5th)
  • Paradigm Shift (November 19th) 

There are other concerts scheduled into December as well... well one can hope. Of course, Covid-19 guidelines will be in-place. The venue is limited to 50 patrons, seated in a HEPA filtrated Auditorium, cabaret style and socially distanced as you can see in the image. Masks are required unless seated at a table. 

Doors open at 7:30 pm. The concert will be from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm. There is a $20 suggested donation. Call 615-4551 for reservations, which are suggested due to the limited seating.
