Jazz lovers throughout the Central Coast of California have joined together in an organization called the SLO County Jazz Federation, founded in 1983.
The Fed's purpose is to support and encourage the performance and appreciation of jazz, both professionally and educationally. This is done by sponsoring live jazz performances and jam sessions, and by giving scholarships and grants to young, talented, central coast musicians who have a special interest in jazz.
The Jazz Fed's membership consists of dedicated jazz fans of all ages, and represents a cross section of our community including business and professional people, local jazz musicians, educators, students and regular listeners. We share a common concern to help jazz, America's great original art form, thrive right here in San Luis Obispo County....
