Our Mission Statement

The Goal of the CCJC (Channel Cities Jazz Club) is to "Keep Jazz Alive" with a non-profit corporation dedicated to preserve and nourish the roots of Jazz and Big Band Music. In that effort each year we sponsor one to three young musicians from local high schools or middle schools that are interested in playing jazz to attend a full week at the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Camp. The young musicians are chosen from established criteria. The applicants fill out an application stating their ability, interest, grades and of course the parent(s) approval. A real treat is when a local high school or middle school jazz band is invited to play on the Sunday afternoon dance during the jam session. We have some awesome young musicians in this area.

The Channel Cities Jazz Club is pleased to announce our new venue for the Sunday Afternoon Dance. We will be opening at the House of Dance in Ventura, CA on January 19th at 1:00 PM.

Our Featured Band is The Phoenyx Big-Band of Thousand Oaks, CA.

The Band plays the classic big band music from artists such as Glen Miller, Count Basie, and Frank Sinatra, and will spice things up with music by more contemporary artists such as Brian Setzer, Michael Bublé and the great Stevie Wonder. The diverse choice of music has been well received by both the musicians who get the opportunity to play music from genres typically not associated with the big band repertoire, but the diverse music has also been a hit with the many loyal fans that the Phoenyx has garnered in a relatively short period of time. Phoenyx fans have heard the band deftly move from genre to genre, playing time-honored-classics such as Frank Sinatra’s Fly me to the Moon and New York, New York, only to follow up with an R&B classic, such as Stevie Wonder’s, Signed, Sealed Delivered, or a rock-anthem, such as Cold Play’s, Viva La Vida.

Come, join us for the party at the
House of Dance
3007 Bunsen Ave, Ventura, Calif.

Fellow members, regret that we are unable to meet, dance and enjoy some of the best musicians in our area. This pandemic has caused the House of Dance to close and we are shut down as well. Stay home as directed and take care of yourself and your love ones. This too shall pass, my prayers are with you and to date I am unaware of any affected members. Keep doing the right thing and we will get through this together.
~Joe Brown - President CCJC
