The Jazz Station Finds a New Home

The Jazz Station — the small, all-ages downtown performance space that's made a home on Broadway between Willamette and Olive for five years — is getting bigger. In a letter sent to Jazz Station members on Monday, board president Chris Orsinger announced the news: The "new, improved" Jazz Station is expected to open in January at 124 W. Broadway, in a space leased from Lord Leebrick and nestled between the theater company and DIVA.

The volunteer-run Jazz Station will remain an all-ages venue. The new space allows for the addition of a rehearsal room and a backstage "green room" for performers.

This weekend, the Jazz Station is one of the downtown venues hosting music for the Eugene Celebration. Stop in and check 'em out before they get bigger! Here's the venue's lineup for the EC:
