Thank You Northwest Jazz Festival!
A special thanks to the Northwest Jazz Festival in Historic Lewiston, NY for their generous contribution and sponsorship of JazzBuffalo’s “Summer of Jazz.” The festival has contributed to the fund supporting the “Summer of Jazz” events such as Chandlerville, Jazz On The Plaz!, and JazzTuesdays at the Mansion on Delaware Avenue. We are most appreciative!
The JazzBuffalo Keep Jazz Alive Fund
As we were last summer, we will be reliant on in-kind donations to help support jazz music this summer into fall. So far, we have jazz music available 4-5 days of the week and possibly more. You can make in-kind suggested donations of $5-$10 per event attended to:
At JazzTuesdays at The Mansion on Delaware Avenue and Jazz On The Plaz! at Seneca One we will also have a bucket for cash donations.
Be sure to check out the Upcoming Events section of JazzBuffalo.org for all the live jazz around town. Both outdoors and indoors. We are more dependent now on musicians and venues submitting their events to JazzBuffalo to appear on the calendar. So, tell your favorite bands and venues to visit JazzBuffalo.org and submit their events! Also, because seating is very limited for live events, tickets can go quickly. Go here for more events:
