Another great jazz venue is the Amherst Brewing Company (the A.B.C.). Every other Monday night features a swingin' local big band, the Amherst Jazz Orchestra (AJO), directed by David Sporny.
Occasional performance by UMASS ensembles and the Jeff Holmes Big Band also take place.
Loose Goose Cafe

Another venue that we enjoy. Just check out the names of their sandwiches! Occasional jazz events take place at the Goose. The owners (Larry&Jackie) are great fans of jazz and we tend to use them to cater our jazz events with their tasty desserts and coffee/cider.
