Rambling House Music Bar, 310 E Hudson St Cbus.

Our friends + partners at Rambling House need our help to keep this going! We'll pass the Tip Jar around ... please bring a $5 bill to help with RH's expenses. If most of the "usual crowd" is willing to put in $5 that goes a long way to keeping this - and Rambling House - stable + sustainable.
Thanks so much for helping out!

Thanks to our friends at SwingColumbus and CBal for helping out + joining in.

~ Please Help Us Keep It Live & Local! ~

Our venue costs are up a lot in 2023. We're gonna need your continued support, for folks to step in and help out to keep these good things happening.

We sure appreciate the steady support of our members!

But if you're not (yet) a member, we could sure use your support to hire musicians + venues!

Please join or renew now online!

Or join/renew at a jam or show. Either way your membership support is VITAL to making COHJS events happen- offering decent compensation to the musicians who learn + share this great music, both at our "pro" shows and an "anchor" or 2 at our jams. Door admissions usually cover maybe 1/3 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!

NEXT UP - Put 'em in your calendar!
