The Jazz Society of Pensacola’s Jazz Gumbo (implying a delicious mix of various ingredients giving a wonderful effect) happens every third Monday evening of each month except December at Seville Quarter located in downtown Pensacola at 130 E. Government St. in Pensacola. Live jazz is featured in a variety of styles with groups or bands chosen from around the Emerald Coast area. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and music happens from 6:30 till around 8:30.
Cost of admission is $8 for JSOP members, $10 for nonmembers, $5 for students with ID and free for military people in uniform. Admission includes a cup of seafood gumbo.
Door prizes are given away via drawing of admission tickets, and attendees can purchase 50/50 tickets for another drawing where the winner gets half and JSOP gets the other half as a benefit to the Society’s music program. One may order from the menu and cash bar is also available. The music is great and there is plenty of time to visit and meet old and new jazz friends. Guests are welcome. Those joining the Society get free admission to their first Jazz Gumbo. Our monthly Jazz Gumbos are a great jazz happening for music and fun with friends in jazz.
