    Blue Room

    7:00 pm
    Blue Room at 18th & Vine in Kansas City

    About the Blue Room

    Named after the famed 1930s Street Hotel club in the Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District, the Blue Room simultaneously honors the past and showcases the present names in jazz.

    A multifaceted exhibit highlighting the countless musicians who crafted “Kansas City jazz,” a sound known all over the world, the Blue Room also provides a distinctive platform to present dynamic performances from the best local and national jazz talent in an intimate setting.

    Come down, bring your instrument and sit in at the weekly Blue Monday Jam – or just take in the sounds of one of Kansas City’s best jam sessions. Big bands typically perform the last Monday of each month, and our Latin Jazz/Salsa series gets shakin’ on the last Thursday of each month (except where otherwise noted on the calendar).

    At the Blue Room, upcoming bands, seasoned veterans of the local jazz scene, national talent and internationally renowned jazz artists share the spotlight.
