Event Info

The 2017 Jazz By Night is dedicated to memory of the late Mickey Roker, legendary Philly drummer who passed away earlier this year. Mikey was the first Jazz artist we sought advice from in starting this event. He graciously agreed to headline with his quartet from Ortlieb’s Jazz Haus, featuring late pianist Sid Simmons, vocalist Joanna Pascale, saxman Victor North, and bassist Madison Rast, at our first two Jazz By Nights in 2003 and 2004.

Early appearances in Media by legendary Philly Jazz giants like Mikey, the late Charles Fambrough and Byard Lancaster, Bootsie Barnes, Larry McKenna, John Swana, Papa John DeFrancesco, Tim Warfield, Lee Smith, Duane Eubanks, Monette Sudler, and Denise King – just for starters – helped solidify our spot on the Philly Jazz Scene

The Media Business Authority will host its 15th Anniversary Jazz By Night Celebration on Saturday, November 18, 6pm to 1am, at 23 indoor venues in downtown Media.

Co-sponsored annually by Temple University’s WRTI 90.1 FM, we will present a diverse array of authentic Jazz, from Classic Jazz and Hard Bop to Gypsy Jazz and Jamaican Jazz – featuring world-renowned musicians and our region’s most talented local artists. Each act will perform two or three sets, so attendees have opportunities to hear as many artists as they wish.

Two Things For You To Do: Purchase Tickets NOW AND Make Reservations NOW at your favorite Media restaurant for dinner before the show.

The 2017 Jazz By Night is being held in Mickey Roker’s honor.
