Tuesday Night Boundary Bay Jazz Jam:
Hosted by The Jazz Project
Join the Jennifer Scott Trio for Boundary Bay's jazz jam session, 8:30-11:30 on the first Tuesday of every month in the taproom. The trio plays the first set then opens up the second and third sets for other players to sit in. June through September, the Jazz Jam shifts to the Beer Garden from 7-10 pm.
Underwriting projects and program services include: the Bellingham Youth Jazz Band, the Medical Fund and Health Savings Pool, and the Scholarship Lesson Fund.
Funding for these programs comes primarily from members like you. For the past fourteen concert seasons member donations have provided the lion's share of the annual budget, while corporate, foundation, and arts grants provide the balance of our funding needs. With that in mind, I encourage you to look over our exciting mix of jazz projects for 2013 and invest in making jazz accessible and affordable to all. You may order tickets and make donations on-line through the Jazz Project Store link.
Thank you for supporting live music and living musicians.
