Summer Break!

We usually do 3 events in the spring and 3 in the fall. Save these dates! Here's how it's looking so far:

Sunday, Sept 10 North Side Jazz Band is back! At the Makoy Center in Hilliard. A looong-time favorite! We don't think we get to hear enough of these guys, so we're doin' something about that!

Sunday, Oct 8 at the Clintonville Woman's Club in Columbus - stay tuned while we set up the band.

Sunday, Nov 19 Fall Harvest Festival of Bands and Charity Event at the Makoy Center, Hilliard - stay tuned on this one too.


Please sign up for our e-news to get updates as soon as they happen!

In the meantime if you're curious about Hot Jazz and what the COHJS does, our Recent Events page should give you a pretty good idea of the music and dancing that we love and share around Central Ohio.


Summer is a TERRIFIC time to learn to dance and play hot jazz! There are lots of jams and dance lessons happening. Many of your and our favorite bands are playing all around too ... a good number of them FREE. See our More Hot Jazz Happenin's page.

The Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to enjoying and sharing traditional American jazz of the early 20th century. Comes in many styles and called by many names – traditional jazz, Dixieland jazz, classic jazz, hot jazz, New Orleans style jazz ... or San Francisco, Chicago, Kansas City, New York style jazz ... it is to us the happiest music in the world! We listen, play, + dance to it.
