Keep Hermann’s Live

What is the Arts On View Society?

Arts On View Society was founded to save Hermann’s Jazz Club and establish an Endowment for the Arts to support the arts in the Capital Region forever. Our goal is to raise $8 million over the next five years, to purchase, renovate and establish this Endowment. Read more here.

Hermann’s Jazz Club is Now Open!

As of July 22, we’re thrilled to say Hermann’s is once again open to the public. You can now watch live music in Victoria at Hermann’s Jazz Club – check out our calendar for show times.

Our number one goal is to keep all of our staff, musicians, and guests safe. Tables are spaced apart with fifty seats now available, there is plexiglass around the bar and in front of the stage, and servers are wearing masks.




Hermann’s Livestream Continues

For those who can’t make it out to live events and for our audience outside of Victoria, we are continuing to Livestream shows. You can watch Hermann’s Livecast shows presented on our Facebook page here and support the Livecast here. Stay healthy and safe!

Send Letters or Videos of support
Hermann’s Jazz Club is a special place; it’s important to people from so many walks of life for so many reasons. We have had the liberty of seeing these letters pour in and it is a beautiful experience. No one person can define why Hermann’s Jazz Club is important – this is the village. Together we tell the story of why we should save this place and what to protect for the future.

Based on letters we’ve received to date, the number one reason why Hermann’s matters to it’s patrons is the positive impact it has on the mental health and well-being of audience members.  Our audience also praises the opportunities given for young musicians to experience the stage and a lessening of frustration with society’s displacement of live performance via high rise desires.

Musicians, audience members, musicologists, lovers of jazz and live music – submit your letter or video of support.
