Glenn Crytzer


Inspired by his love of early jazz developed through years of dancing, Glenn Crytzer took up the banjo while pursuing his masters degree in music composition from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Inspired by a warm welcome in the Cleveland early jazz scene, Crytzer soon founded "The Any Measure Jazz Band" with fellow students from the Cleveland Institute of Music. After moving to Seattle in 2006, Crytzer began seeking out musicians to form a band who understood what dance music was all about. Since then Crytzer's bands have been featured for numerous events and venues throughout the Seattle area including Camp Jitterbug, Savoy Swing Jam, The Seattle Lindy Exchange, the Emerald City Blues Festival, the Century Ballroom Masters Weekend, the Killer Diller Weekend/Harvest Moon Ball Championships, the Russian Center, Waid's night club, the University of Washington Swing Kids, the Western Washington Swing Club, as well as at private events and parties. Also a classical composer, Crytzer's music has been performed around the US and in Europe

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
