Since the 1900s, jazz music has had a very influential impact on Cincinnati. In the 1920s, Gennett Studios attracted big-name musicians like Louis Armstrong to record, and African American jazz bands such as Zack Whyte’s Chocolate Beau Brummels originated right here in Cincinnati. Jazz became a crucial part of the Cincinnati club scene in the 1950s and has maintained popularity through time.

 

Cincinnati is the proud home to a plethora of jazz venues and concerts. Frequent these venues as much as you’d like and be sure to add these concerts to your calendar.
