"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing..."
—Duke Ellington

Our Mission

The Treasure Coast Jazz Society was founded in 1986 by Ash Andon, Harry Buck and Chubby Jackson. We are a non-profit organization formed to encourage the performance, promotion and preservation of JAZZ -- this unique American art form. Jazz has been recognized by the United States Congress as a "National Treasure."

Our three objectives are:

To foster and expand a greater awareness of this great American art form by bringing the finest national and international jazz musicians to the Treasure Coast for our concerts.

To encourage young musicians who will ultimately carry the jazz tradition to future generations. To do this, the Society donates significant financial scholarship aid to talented local high school jazz musicians for continued study at the college or university level.

To cooperate with other jazz-oriented groups, locally and nationally, to exchange information and assistance for the appreciation, growth and perpetuation of jazz music. Among the well-known persons that have appeared at our concerts are such names as the Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Woody Herman orchestras and smaller groups featuring Ken Peplowski, Harry Allen, Rossano Sportiello, Dic Grober and Johnny Varro..
