In Support of Jazz:
The OCJP Jazz Club

The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) is indebted to its Jazz Club members, who realize that for the Oregon Coast Jazz Party to survive and thrive, early, consistent funds are needed to embark on international and national marketing and to provide the base for our music director to start booking musicians. Thank you for your dedication to jazz and OCCA. 

Jazz Club members agree to make a stable donation to support the Oregon Coast Jazz Party for a minimum of two years. Ask a Jazz Club member how to join, or call the Performing Arts Center at 541-265-2787 for details. Jazz Club members receive numerous benefits, including advance ticket discounts, exclusive pass prices, and special events during the Jazz Party.
