Music helps the soul. Which is more important than ever.
We are looking forward to the next time we can be together in the JAZZ ROOM.
Meanwhile, we want to make sure we are supporting our local musicians, who want to bring you music in any way they can. As much as jazz is their life, it is their livelihood as well.
So check below, and check back often, to discover our local musicians livestreaming. Pop some popcorn, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, and sit back in the comfort of your living room for a little education, entertainment, and more. And we’ll see you in person as soon as we can.
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 25 8:00pm ET. Live from Crown with bassist Dave Vergato. Available on YouTube & Facebook Live.
THURSDAY MARCH 25, 8:00pm ET. Live from Crown with Stephen Gordon. Available on YouTube & Facebook Live.
