Jazz About Town

Jazz About Town

Bored? Tired of the same old stuff? Don’t know what to do nor where to go? Well, gee, THERE’S LOTS OF JAZZ IN TOWN!!!!
Here is this week’s listing of jazz events to help you fill that need for jazz:
We have updated the list for the Imbibe venue. Check it out. There are a lot of great acts coming up.

UPCOMING JAZZ EVENTS/GIGS

NOTE: You may have noticed a lot of “empty” or “N/A” listings for the venues below in this and past Jazz About Towns. Well, one of the reasons (other than our volunteers are, well, volunteers and sometimes have real jobs to do), is that we need to know where the gigs are! So, if you are a jazz musician and would like us to publicize your gigs (for FREE!!!), then you have to let us know about them. Just drop an e-mail to bakjazzworkshop@yahoo.com at least a week in advance and we’ll get it in the next newsletter!
