Thank you for celebrating 100 Years of recorded jazz with us!

JazzErie would like to thank everyone who supported and helped us celebrate 100 years of recorded jazz this season!  We had a great year and were able to bring some of the top artists and lecturers into Erie to give an all encompassing picture of where recorded jazz started and what direction it is going in the future!  

Three more great concerts in 2017

On March 6th, 1917, the Victor Talking Mchine Co. released a recording by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band of "Original Dixieland Jass Band One Step' and 'Livery Stable Blues'.   On May 31 of that same year, another disc by ODJB was released by Columbia Gramaphone Co.  This disc included "Darktown Strutters Ball" and "Indiana."  These sides became hits and gave Americans across the country their first taste of America's only original art form, jazz.  "Erie Celebrates 100 Years of Recorded Jazz" is a year-long celebration presented by JazzErie and the sponsors below..
