The Jazz Station. 124 W. Broadway, . [contact: Non-profit Willamette Jazz Society. Launched in 2005, the Jazz Station is an all-ages community-supported performance space and art gallery located at 124 W. Broadway. Supported by memberships, contributions and event revenues, the venue offers concerts, visual art and affordable rehearsal space for musicians.
The Jazz Station is a project of the Willamette Jazz Society, a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to advance the art of jazz. The involvement of youth in concerts, jams and audiences is a key strategy. An eight-member volunteer board governs the organization.
The larger, renovated Jazz Station features a lobby with beer and wine bar, capacity for 70 seats, a larger stage with a new sound system and theatre lighting, a dressing room for performers, a rehearsal studio, and two accessible bathrooms. The renovation was accomplished by enormous amount of volunteer labor, and financed with community support.]
