The history of the Colored Musicians Club goes back to the formation of Buffalo Local 533, one of the first African-American musicians' unions, in 1918. It has continued for nearly 100 years.
After the formation of the Colored Musicians Club by the union members, in 1935, all the great stars of jazz who came to town in the golden years of jazz stopped in at the Colored Musicians Club to jam with local musicians.
The club is consistently nominated as one of the best jazz spots in Western New York.
The club offers live jazz in an intimate setting, and some of the best jazz you can find anywhere. It is open to non-members who want to share a love of jazz, and are seeking a relaxing time in a friendly place.
