Coastal Jazz & Blues Society

The story of Coastal Jazz and Blues Society is the story of determination, passion, idealism, community, and of course, music. Founded in 1985, we incorporated in 1986 as a community-based, not-for-profit, charitable arts organization located in Vancouver, British Columbia. From the very beginning, the society has worked diligently to establish Vancouver as a centre for the creation and exchange of sounds and ideas between the local, national, and international music communities.
