YOUR GUIDE TO JAZZ IN CAPE TOWN

This jazz gig guide for Cape Town and surrounds is updated every Monday morning, and sometimes during the week as well.

This blog site is coupled to a newsletter which is sent out weekly (Mondays), and it also forms the basis of Fine Music Radio's jazz gig guide, which is broadcast on weeknights at about 7.30pm.

Please help by submitting details of any jazz events you're aware of, preferably by early on Mondays, to mikelaatz@telkomsa.net

There is no charge for this service, and anyone is free to join the mailing list.

We also post a weekly jazz video.
