Since its start in 2013, Jazz in the Neighborhood has presented over 200 jazz concerts at neighborhood venues from Santa Rosa to San Jose. Many of these events have been free, and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.
In presenting these events, over 300 of the Bay Area’s top jazz musicians have received guaranteed payment for their performances without having to worry about a tip jar or filling the house.
More often than not, ticket sales do not cover event costs, and that’s why Jazz in the Neighborhood is a not-for-profit. Like public radio, we keep the music happening through the generous support of sponsors and members like you!
As a component of our fundraising efforts, Jazz in the Neighborhood is well positioned to present concerts for private events. Please contact us to book a private concert featuring top Bay Area jazz musicians.
