Music in Ventura

Jazz artwork is Ventura's online music entertainment guide. Be it live or Memorex, you'll find all things music for this amazing town featuring incredible artists and musicians. We list everything from Karaoke joints to punk shows to down and dirty blues as well as the finest jazz jams.

Here's the deal. We want to make this town the next Austin or Seattle. We have so much talent and an abundance of venues to see them in. It really isn't that far-fetched. All we really needed was a one-stop reference to see what's what. We have also vowed to never charge the artists and to never charge the venues to be listed on our website.

You'll want to stop by weekly to see what's going on and again check in the nights you'll be hitting the town as we're always adding more shows as they come in and doing our best to keep up on last minute changes.

And, while you're here, be sure to check out our articles covering Ventura's music scene, as well as CD reviews of Ventura artists, and photo galleries of events held here.  Ventura Rocks baby!!!
