We do what we do because of a) avid fans with open ears, eager to hear a variety of major players on the contemporary jazz & improvised music scene; b) artists and their agents, who often go to extraordinary lengths to come check out life behind the Redwood Curtain; and c) an elite group of local businesses and professionals, who along with select folks at HSU and a small cadre of dedicated individual members have liberally contributed money, goods, and services to enhance Humboldt's cultural landscape with world-class jazz.

We're a non-profit, and it's the stalwart support of such civic-minded members of the community that lets us keep ticket prices low (and workshops free). If you or your business can make a tax-deductible contribution--or if you'd like to become a contributing individual member of the RJA--please visit our Underwriting & Donations page.

Redwood Jazz Alliance is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charity in Humboldt County, California, dedicated to jazz performance and education by visiting artists.

Midway between Portland and San Francisco, tucked between the redwoods and the ocean on California's north coast, our area offers spectacular scenery, small-town community, outstanding wineries and microbreweries and most important, a group of students, faculty, and local citizens excited about good music.
