The Santa Barbara Jazz Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to perpetuating and preserving America’s unique musical contribution to the world-jazz. We present monthly concerts that feature all types of jazz musicians giving them a venue to utilize their talent. The Jazz Society also gives yearly scholarships to students in the Santa Barbara area so they can pursue their education in this important style of music.

We are constantly seeking volunteers to assist us in this endeavor. If you are interested in the Jazz Society please contact us, call us at 805.687.7123 or email us.

Concerts are held once a month on Sundays at:

SOhO Restaurant and Music Club
1221 State Street, Santa Barbara
1 – 4 pm

Please see Calendar for more information.

We encourage all members and their guests, as well as musicians and vocalists to attend!
