ABOUT US

JAZZ AT THE BALLROOM is committed to keeping swinging, classic jazz thriving, sharing this extraordinary American art form with the greater public and providing audiences with one-of-a-kind experiences.

We work with the world's most talented jazz musicians in intimate and unique settings and focus on the Great American Songbook and the timeless elegance the music embraces. Our mission is to create an environment where every guest feels at home and each artist can share their stories, passion, and talent.

Beyond our ballroom concerts, we work to introduce, teach, and explore this incredible art form through our workshops, special events, and public concerts. Through these efforts, we keep unforgettable jazz standards alive in our community and foster a love of music in future generations.

 

THE LATEST SCOOP

 As we begin to get out of the grips of COVID, many of you have contacted us for updates about JB. 

 

The short answer is: yes, the shows will go on!

 

The longer answer is: yes, the shows will go on! We remained impressively active during the past 18 months with our outreach work and virtual programming. Much of that will continue. The biggest change is we won’t be having our private, salon series in the ballroom anymore. But to paraphrase Hemingway, JB is a moveable feast. It can be taken beyond the ballroom without losing any of its caché and standing. We’re growing beyond the Bay Area and, all at once, it’s a natural progression, an exciting juncture, and part of our original business plan.

 

We have six outdoor concerts scheduled for the remainder of 2021 (we’re even branching out to Europe!) and an equal number of indoor ones at various locations. Please join our mailing list so you don’t miss details on any of them!
