The new Jazz room at Post 399

Dear Friends,
Words cannot describe the toll the past two years of pandemic living have taken on all of us. Even if we managed to stay healthy, the loss of security, the loss of community and the loss of spirit has weakened all of us.
Thankfully, the worst seems to be behind, and many of us have survived seemingly intact. Unfortunately, the service and hospitality professions, and the arts, vital to our quality of life, have taken a major hit. Actors, dancers and musicians, all dependent on a paying audience to make their living have been severely affected, and as the dust settles many fine institutions and venues are no longer with us.
Here in Westport, we felt the loss of our regular Thursday jazz performances on the water, and especially the sense of community as we would gather each week to nourish our souls with great jazz by some of the best in the New York area.

Your friends from JazzFC are committed to keeping live jazz music a regular part of life in Westport, and giving our famous piano a new home as soon as possible, where it will be played weekly. Our friends at the Post (VFW Post 399 in Westport) have a nice facility with river views, and are willing to work with us to create a new home for jazz in time for the lovely warm spring and summer nights. They have not previously presented music, so this will be a new experience for all.

Please come on out, and bring friend or two, as we look forward to spending time together again on Thursday nights.

Remember- it’s up to YOU to support live Jazz in Westport- It don’t support itself, and it sure as hell don’t support us!
