Jazz Alley eagerly anticipates the return to live music shows. As much as they wanted to open during 2020, conditions dictated that it would be unwise to do so. The music calendar is filled with artists waiting to return in 2021 as soon as it is safe to do so. Please know they’ve gone to great lengths in preparation, with nine HVAC units that now include new state of the art “Plasma Air Ionizers” which clean our air constantly, plus massive “Air Handlers” that circulate six tons of outside air continuously.

Jazz Alley has already scheduled a full calendar of great artists in the completely re-vamped showroom. Your experience will be spacious and welcoming with great food, cocktails, and your fill of soul feeding music, all while complying with healthy and safety measures.
Jazz Alley hopes that all “Alley Cats” are safe, healthy, and getting ready to get back into the swing of things. Become an Alley Cat to enjoy advance concert notice, discounts, and special invites.
