A casual concert series featuring independent artists and cheap beer!

Starting from day one – when Kuumbwa Jazz was founded forty years ago – budding local bands and musicians were featured on our concert billings, strengthening the local music scene by aligning its talent alongside nationally and internationally known masters. The tradition of Kuumbwa being a place for new and independent artists continues today with the Club Kuumbwa series. Oftentimes local, and oftentimes residing in genres slightly outside of jazz, the bands that are featured in this series are poised to become future stalwarts of our musical community and on our stage. With these all ages shows being held on weekend nights, with drink specials and inexpensive cover charges, Club Kuumbwa looks forward to broadening the pool of talented artists who feel at home on the Kuumbwa stage, as well as the audiences who will enjoy them.
