Due to this current covid surge as well as conflicts for several of our "anchor" musicians (and thank Heaven they're working!), we're not going to do the January jam. Sorry to miss it ... hope to see you in Feb!
Every 2nd Wed ... Mar 9, Apr 13, etc + so on
PLEASE NOTE - Like pretty much all other venues in town, Rambling House has a "house policy" requiring PROOF of VACCINATION or a negative COVID test within 48 hours of entry. They do check 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!
To everybody who came to the Fall Harvest on Nov 21 at the historic Valley Dale Ballroom:
Not only did we have a grand time with the Cakewalkin' Jass Band, the Buffalo Ridge Jazz Band and celebrating their 25th, celebrating COHJS's 40th, and President Emeritus Bob Butters' 92nd ...
A HUGE shout-out and thank you to everybody who brought food and dry goods. We ended up donating a whopping 86 pounds of food (and a Kroger card!) to a Food Pantry! It all adds up, and it's amazing how THIS effort by a modest group of friends and fans added up to a VERY generous and nutritious donation. THANK YOU!!
We sure appreciate the steady support of our members!
▶ If you were a member in 2020, we AUTOMATICALLY EXTENDED your membership to 2021.
But 2022's just about 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!
And we're ALSO grateful to the The Greater Columbus Arts Council for their generous support.
The Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to enjoying and sharing traditional American jazz of the early 20th century.

We LISTEN, PLAY, + DANCE to it, especially LIVE and NEAR HOME!
