CBJC is known throughout central Brooklyn for bringing first class jazz acts into the community. Now this not for profit arts organization brings Brooklyn jazz favorites: Jeff King Band, Juju Jazz Band and jazz dancing to the Russian community of Brighton Beach and welcomes all jazz fans.

Oceana Hall is a spectacular venue with theatrical staging, sunken dance floor, unobstructed views from all seats including its cozy intimate balconies. The Jeff King Band has been entertaining music lovers for over a decade playing the best of the New Jazz Standards. Vocalist Juju Gordon has jazz in her blood (niece of Dexter Gordon); her smooth relaxing styling's and swinging band will reach out and touch you. Bring your dancing shoes, jazz dancing will be on the bill also as Brooklyn Bebopers strut their stuff to the live music performances.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
