April is Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM)! JAM was designated by the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History in 2001 and the U.S. Congress passed legislation in 2003 that declared April as Jazz Appreciation Month. The concept of Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) is simple: designate one month annually to publicly spotlight jazz as our original music, born in America and celebrated worldwide. JAM is intended to draw public attention to the glories of jazz as both a historical and living treasure.
Sioux Falls Jazz & Blues celebrates Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) by hosting a number of special events, including the 9th Annual Jazz Crawl. The Jazz Crawl will feature many local jazz musicians at your favorite bars and restaurants, starting at 6pm!
