For over 10 years, Jazz Bridge has been an advocate and a voice for jazz and blues musicians in the Greater Philadelphia Metro area (lower Delaware Valley), which includes Trenton, NJ, Atlantic City, NJ, Cape May, NJ, Wilmington DE, Reading, PA and Allentown, PA and everyone in between. Jazz Bridge also aids professional jazz artists in crisis and we understand how to support and help the musicians in our midst who fall on hard times.

Whatever a particular musician or singer needs, Jazz Bridge helps with medical, dental, legal, and personal crises, and through our Neighborhood Concerts Series program in five locations, many local artists present their original work to appreciative crowds. If you need help, please call 215-517-8337 or email us at info@jazzbridge.org

Please understand that Jazz Bridge aids professional jazz and blues musicians in crisis who are living in the Greater Philadelphia Metro area. If you do not fit these criteria, please call anyway as we might be able to steer you in the right direction to get help.

From October through May, Jazz Bridge presents neighborhood concerts series throughout the Philadelphia Metro area every month in Collingswood NJ, Cheltenham PA, and Roxborough (Philadelphia).  These concerts give performance opportunities to our Jazz and blues musicians to showcase their original work while receiving a living wage for their talents. The Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concerts Series provides work for over 120 musicians a year in under-utilized neighborhood nonprofit venues at a family-friendly ticket price ($10.00, $5.00 w/ student I.D. & kids 12 and under are FREE)! These concerts are hosted by jazz musicians from each particular neighborhood and each concert provides an educational component to the performance to facilitate understanding in the community of the musicians in their midst. Check out our You Tube site to watch some of our concerts!

If you are a musician or singer who wishes to play a Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concert, please contact the respective hosts. Please note that you must be a jazz or blues musician who is also doing original material.
