We got a great opportunity to ADD an event and thanks to your faithful support, we could make it happen. Combined with our 'regularly scheduled programming' it's going to be a great week for Trad Jazz fans + dancers -- 2 shows and a jam+dance inside of 5 days!
We're excited to finally kick off our Fall Season with a show by this powerhouse hometown band on the East lawn of Trinity Lutheran Seminary at Capital Univ, 2199 E Main St, Bexley. Bring a lawn chair. No rain date ... check the band's website for weather cancellation, or Sid Townsend 614-556-6353.
A long-time favorite with both listeners and dancers, Dave Greer and his Classic Jazz Stompers from the Dayton area has been delighting audiences at home and abroad since the late 1980's. We're pleased to have them back for our October show!
Please Note! New COVID admission policy:
Like most other events + venues these days, we're asking people to bring proof of full vaccination (or a negative COVID test within 48 hours) and a photo ID. We understand that not everybody's happy about this. Seems next-to-impossible to find a way to put on an event and keep everybody happy, comfortable, and safe. Sure sorry about the trouble. We'd love to see you!
COHJS and SwingColumbus Members now $5 ... General Admission now $10
Music educators + music students FREE! All other students $5
Every 2nd Wed ... Nov 10, etc + so on
After re-starting in July, cancelling August, and a light turnout in Sept,
our monthly Hot Jazz Jam and Dance is back at the Rambling House.
PLEASE NOTE! Rambling House has also implemented a new "house policy" requiring that all guests provide PROOF of VACCINATION or a negative COVID test within 48 hours of entry. They WILL be checking at the door. Please see their website for details. And yeah of course we're aware this is controversial and we've heard from friends who think it's great and friends who think it stinks. Our apologies if you dislike it, hope to see you either way!
At the fabulous and historic Valley Dale Ballroom.
Featuring the Cakewalkin' Jass Band from Toledo, the Midwest All-Stars, and a third band to be named.
▶ Come on out! Listen ~ dance ~ catch up with friends old + new ... bring family + friends too! ◀
We sure appreciate the steady support of our members!
▶ If you were a member in 2020, we AUTOMATICALLY EXTENDED your membership to 2021.
And if you're not (yet) a member, we could sure use your support to hire these musicians + the venue! Please consider joining or renewing RIGHT NOW ONLINE or at the door. Your membership support is VITAL to making COHJS events happen, and offering decent compensation to the musicians who learn + share this great music. Door admissions usually cover 1/3 to 1/2 of the cost of a show. Most of the rest comes from memberships, and a bit more from The Columbus Foundation grant and Ohio Living's sponsorship.
For $20 a year you get $5 off the regular show admission and our newsletter - - but what you really get is doing your bit to keep hot jazz and dance live + local!
And we're ALSO grateful to the The Greater Columbus Arts Council for their generous support.
