The JazzBuffalo Keep Jazz Alive Fund
We will be reliant on in-kind donations to help support jazz music this summer into fall as we were last summer. 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:
