The 17th edition of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festivalheld June 22nd to the 30thwas another success. The festival, held annually in downtown Rochester, New York, has quickly become one of the nation's most popular and most respected music events. We're talking about 1500+ artists, 20 venues; each within walking distance of each other, 320 concerts; including 94 free shows and events. The festival's European style makes it the place to meet! With many streets closed to traffic, the lively and vibrant ambiance makes XRIJF and destination for friends to connect, hear and discuss favorite music, and enjoy good food. I'm sure that whoever attended this year is looking forward to the 18th edition.
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!
