CLUB PASS SHOW ENTRY WITHOUT A CLUB PASS

If you don't have a Club Pass, you can enter any Club Pass Series show for $30 ($35 Kilbourn Hall), cash only, at the door. No advance tickets are sold for Club Pass Series Shows and there are no reserved seats. Entry is first-come, first-served for all, whether you pay cash at the door or have a Club Pass. Since venues may fill to capacity prior to shows so to ensure a better chance of a seat, arrive early and wait in line. Doors open 30 minutes before shows. See Club Pass Venues below.

At the early shows at two of our busiest venues, Max of Eastman Place and Kilbourn Hall, we also offer a convenient Save Time in Line system. Check it out!

"The club pass is fantastic. It's very cool to be able to walk to all the different venues and to have different types of venues i.e. churches, bars, concert halls, etc .”

"As always, the Club Pass acts are both new and familiar. The range of types of jazz is broad. All performances i attended were well worth the price of the Club Pass."

“The club pass makes it possible to see a lot for a little. Great quality of music!
