D-Caf Jazz

D-Caf jazz began as a quartet of four guys - all professional musicians - who have interacted with each other professionally across various musical endeavors over the years. For two years before our founding, there was talk among some of us about starting a new jazz group. Then an opportunity was presented to Scott, who immediately contacted Peter, Rene and Mike. Intense rehearsing began, and then followed the live performances. Much applause. The group earned a following of supporters. Life transformations brought about changes to the ensemble. It was decided by Scott, the group leader, that the name would be changed from D-Caf Jazz Quartet to simply D-Caf Jazz

The city, known as a playground for the super-rich, was a Navy town transitioning into a tourist mecca. The jazz festival lost its luster after 1969 and 1971 riots by beer-swilling rowdies ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
