Atlanta Jazz - upcoming events

I no longer post information about upcoming Atlanta jazz concerts, but with a little effort you can find events on your own. As a starting point, you could visit the Atlanta Jazz Clubs and Atlanta Jam Sessions pages to familiarize yourself with the venues and weekly jam sessions.

UPDATE: Churchill Grounds closed on July 31, 2016. They are currently looking for a new location and will hopefully reopen in the near future. As far as clubs go, Churchill Grounds is the best place to hear Atlanta's top jazz musicians, so you'll definitely want to check out the Churchill Grounds calendar page. For jam sessions, I'd definitely recommend the Tuesday night jam session at Venkman's, the Wednesday night jam session at Red Light Cafe, and the Thursday night jam session at Churchill Grounds.

If you use Facebook and you really want to stay close to the jazz scene, you'll learn about many more gigs by "liking" some of the busiest Atlanta jazz musicians on Facebook. You can start with Joe Gransden, Mace Hibbard, Melvin Jones, Jacob Deaton, and Justin Chesarek.

In addition to the above, one of Atlanta's best jazz pianists, Louis Heriveaux, has a nightly trio gig at Houston's Restaurant in Buckhead (2166 Peachtree Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30309). You can catch them Sunday-Thursday from 6:30pm to 9pm and Friday-Saturday from 7pm to 10pm.

Finally, to learn about touring jazz musicians, you can visit the Rialto Center, Spivey Hall, and Ferst Center.
