Hermann’s Jazz Club – temporarily closed but still streaming

As we continue to cooperate with our health authorities, Hermann’s will be closed to live audience until at least April.

Musicians will continue to perform and share through YouTube/Vimeo.

Since we started the livestream more than 1000 audience members have collectively contributed over $150,000 directly to musicians for the streams. Without your support, many of these artists wouldn’t be able to keep doing what they do. We are so thankful for your generosity.

We’ve been proud of our ability to adapt to health restrictions to date and for being able to reopen safely with  live music for months.

As you know, it’s been a difficult time for us with having to re-close, especially since we were just about to have a sold-out weekend. Music is a vital part of any community, and we are grateful to continue to have the live stream as a way to bring music and joy to you. If you are able to donate to Hermann’s or share our videos with a friend and asking them to donate, any little way of supporting us really helps.

Thank you for your ongoing support to  our club and artists.
