About WMJS and the Coronavirus Pandemic

The West Michigan Jazz Society cares about our membership, musicians and everyone involved with our events.  Considering the current situation in our country, we have made the decision to cancel our March and April Jazz Gumbos at the Casino Club in order to do our part in keeping our community safe.  We will also be postponing the Musician of the Year event for now and reschedule as soon as we are able.  We wish you all the best in these difficult times and will keep you updated on future events. Please stay safe!

If you have any questions let us know!
