Upcoming Specials and Announcements
This space highlights upcoming special jazz-related events that are sponsored by the Idaho Jazz Society, as well as other events of special interest to the IJS. More details about these and many other events are available on the Calendar page.


Monday, July 3, 2017, Olympic Venue
Michael Mitchell (of Thick Business drummer fame) is starting a weekly jazz jam on Monday nights at 8:00 at the Olympic. Ages 19+, very student friendly for college age and above.

People have to actually go, or the Olympic will axe it and it will DIE. The first one is slated for July 3, just a week away, so we need to make sure there's a big turnout that day! This great responsibility falls squarely upon jazz lovers and their friends!
