A personal note- I love these concerts! This is the real deal - great musicians that will wow you and put a huge smile on your face. And plenty of shtik to go with... The Central Ohio Hot Jazz Society has been putting on concerts since 1981. 1981! We've been putting on dances and lessons since 1998 or so. Each of our groups had NO idea the other existed until about 2 years ago when one of our SwingColumbus members attended a COHJS concert and told us how great it was. Both of our groups were thinking 'where have you been all my life?!'

We've since done a few performances at COHJS concerts and teamed up on marketing. They have been more than generous in opening dance floor space for us and we've been so thrilled to have these amazing live bands to enjoy while we dance. What a great opportunity! The audience is all ages, from little kids to those who grew up with this music. It's a very family-friendly environment. I hope you'll attend a concert and maybe I'll even catch you on the dance floor...
