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:

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 (!!!), 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! 

Bakersfield Jazz Workshop – every Tuesday at The Mark 1623 19th St. 


We’ve listed more details on the gigs below – venue addresses, ticket info, times, band members, websites, etc. Also, if you have any jazz gigs coming up, send us an email to bakjazzworkshop@lightspeed.net and we’ll let everyone on our know about it.

Support our local jazz musicians, and have a great time listening to jazz!
