Best of Philly

2021 Music-Venue Pivot

Chris’ Jazz Cafe

When every other music venue shut down, the city’s longest-standing jazz club invested in a state-of-the-art four-camera HD livestreaming package and brought live Philly jazz to audiences around the world, with viewers as far away as Japan. The move provided some much-needed work to otherwise out-of-work musicians, and even though live audiences have returned, the livestreams continue. This month, don’t miss master bassist Ben Williams on August 13th.
