Fort Pierce Jazz & Blues Society - 20 Years of Great Music & Fulfilling the Mission!

The Beat Goes On,
Two Decades Strong!

Founded in September 1996 by Darryl Bey and Larry Lee together with a group of Jazz and Blues enthusiasts, the Fort Pierce Jazz & Blues Society is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster a greater awareness and love for Jazz and Blues by exposing these great American art forms to the community at-large and to the schools. The Jazz & Blues Society shares ideas with other Jazz and/or Blues-oriented groups locally and around the nation to mutually assist in promoting the growth, appreciation and perpetuation of the Jazz and Blues genres.

The Fort Pierce Jazz & Blues Society presents Jazz and Blues music to the public in a variety of ways, including: festivals, performances, free jam sessions, hands-on workshops, clinics, community education, and outreach initiatives.  Our objectives are to foster greater awareness and enjoyment in the community for Jazz and Blues through education and performances, and to provide scholarships to deserving college-bound students who wish to further their knowledge and skill in the music field.

It is all so simple...provide great music performed by great players, always respect and consider the people who support the effort, throw in some funds so as to continue this, and voila!!, you have the ingredients necessary to fulfill our mission. The mission of the Fort Pierce Jazz & Blues Society is to promote the growth, appreciation and performance of Jazz and Blues ~ two great American Music Art Forms ~ through annual scholarship awards, educational workshops, clinics and master classes, weekly jazz jams, tri-annual Waterside Blues Festivals, Mardi Gras and Jazz Week celebrations and community outreach programs.

The Fort Pierce Jazz & Blues Society will forge ahead to accomplish and achieve our many worthwhile goals...expanding educational programs, musical forums, social events, City support and awareness, promoting artistic culture and last but not least, a very BIG warm smile from those who have learned to enjoy our traditional Jazz Jams!  Is that all there is?  ABSOLUTEY NOT! That's where everything begins!  We shall continue to work diligently to make things entertaining, fun and interesting at all our upcoming and ongoing events.

Come join us… a great musical experience awaits you.
