About Us

The Hernando Jazz Society was established by a group of retired professional musicians who wanted to keep the music of the Big Band Era alive. They first met in Spring Hill, FL and began playing at the drummer’s house. The group grew and decided to go public. The second time they played at a small hall with a capacity of less than 100, a crowd of 150 showed up. They saw there was a demand for their kind of music and searched for a larger hall.

The Hernando Jazz Society was first established as a Florida Not for Profit and a 501(c)(3) Non Profit corporation organized to preserve, perform, and perpetuate all form of Jazz; to support educational programs for our youth, provide performance opportunities for musicians, produce musical concerts and festivals; establish and maintain musical and scholarship funds; and report to members news of jazz developments and activities. The Society is affiliated with the Hernando County Fine Arts Council and is recognized by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington and listed in their roster of National Jazz Societies.
