Coronavirus - COVID-19 Message 24 – April 12, 2021

​During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, LAjazz.com will continue to do its best to update you as to the status of live jazz events across Southern California.

Governor Gavin Newsom lifted the ban on outdoor dining throughout the state as of late January.  It can be expected that some venues that have previously offered outdoor dining and music will return to doing so again shortly.  Indoor dining restrictions are also being lifted, but with capacity restrictions, and some venues have again begin offering live music.  Bars in Los Angeles have been allowed to partially re-open as of April 5, 2021 with capacity and other restrictions. The LA Phil has announced they will begin offering concerts at the Hollywood Bowl beginning in July 2021.  Most larger entertainment and concert venues have canceled their performance schedules for the first half of 2021.

Most restaurants have also implemented an advance reservations policy to help comply with seating and social distancing needs, and most have ended live music indoors or out to comply with the latest order from Governor Newsom.  Please check with any venue listed below for exact times and information regarding music and reservations before heading out. Some venues and musicians have begun offering livestream events – please visit your favorite club and artist websites for more information about livestream events – LAjazz.com has a limited schedule of livestream events available with showtimes and event weblinks when available.

LAjazz.com highly recommends wearing a mask whenever possible in music venues (and generally in public) out of respect for musicians, staff, and your fellow patrons. If you’re not feeling well, please stay home.

Be smart and help your local musicians, venues, and neighbors during this period – LAjazz.com will do its part to keep you up to date and informed throughout the week. Stay safe out there, and remember what a gift live music is to all of us.

Please see the Quick Calendar at LAjazz.com and the
online version of About & Out for the latest updates – both are updated on a regular basis throughout the week.
