We sure appreciate the steady support of our members!
If you were a member in 2020, we AUTOMATICALLY EXTENDED your membership to 2021 because of all the disruptions of covid.

But 2022's here and we'd sure appreciate your continued support ... please renew now online and help keep admission at the door moving along!

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!
