The Jazz Station currently serves as the only jazz venue in Oregon outside of Portland. Our club has been a mainstay for over 15 years located in the heart of downtown Eugene. We are a 70-seat capacity non-profit all-age venue that offers musicians, students and community members a neighborly, intimate place to share in the musical moment, not unlike the storied clubs where the spirit of jazz originally blossomed. We reside on the downtown Eugene entertainment corridor; between The Shedd on one end of Broadway St. and The Contemporary Theatre located on the other.
We have beer and wine bar stocked with local favorites, a professional lighting and sound system, and a baby grand piano. The Jazz Station hosts over 500 local, regional and national musicians annually to our stage.
The venue is operated by the Willamette Jazz Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and powered by a team of passionate and dedicated volunteers. A community of over 120 members provides the core of support through monthly memberships. Audiences at The Jazz Station are known to be active and respectful listeners, and open to a diverse and eclectic calendar of musical offerings during the year. Concerts are often sold out in advance.
The Jazz Station is an invaluable community resource and occupies a unique niche in our local arts scene. It’s the only place where students from University of Oregon, Lane Community College and local high schools and middle schools can come together to collaborate and play. Over 100 student musicians get the chance to make new musical connections and hone their talents in a real-life jazz performance setting.
The Jazz Station is located at 124 West Broadway in a thriving downtown area of restaurants and cafes, a nearby theater company and an independent bookstore.
