The BSR has over 500 members and some 300 of them attend the club's live jazz sessions at the Pismo Beach Veteran's Memorial Building on one Sunday a month, from 11:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
The events are generally held on the last Sunday of the month, but there are exceptions. Check the Event Calendar for exact dates.
We host a guest Traditional Jazz band to come and perform for our members. The guest bands are often World Class and come from throughout the State, from San Diego to San Francisco. The guest band will play two sets, 1¼ hours each. In between, a local band will play a 45-minute set. There is also an opening two-hour jam session where local musicians, including youth, can play together on stage and teach and learn the ebb and flow of Traditional Jazz music. Food and drinks are served for very reasonable prices during the session to keep the members fortified. Dancing and carousing is encouraged! You might even see an impromptu New-Orleans style parasol parade! Jazz paraphernalia and parasols are for sale in the lobby. There is a Monster Raffle of jazz tapes, CDs, wine and tickets to the Jubilee. Admission is only $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members. Where else can you get six hours of non-stop music for that price? We have two events throughout the year that are not held at the Veteran's Hall. In October, we host " Jubilee By the Sea ", the largest and most popular Traditional Jazz Festival on the Central Coast. In April, we host our annual Peek Neek for club members, at a park or a member's home or ranch. We are always looking for sponsors for our Sunday Sessions.
