Supporting the Greater Philadelphia Jazz & Blues Community with Love
Jazz Bridge assists Jazz and Blues musicians living in the Greater Philadelphia Metro area who face financial, health, housing and similar crises.
A registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, Jazz Bridge also supports musicians by providing paid performance opportunities through our live neighborhood concerts and special event presentations. A community favorite for over 12 years, our concerts celebrate the Philadelphia Jazz & Blues tradition and build cultural awareness throughout the region.
