Tacoma, WA
Hometown: Tacoma

Organizer since:

August 28, 2015


Tell us why you love jazz & blues and why it is important to you in Tacoma?

I love jazz and the history of it here in this wonderful city of Tacoma, from Bing Crosby's roots here to the great Red Kelly to the all the fantastic jazz musicians in Tacoma today, and the annual Tacoma Jazz and Blues Festival, let's celebrate it!


I am a trumpet player, band leader of Rich Wetzel's Groovin Higher Jazz Orchestra and founder, director of The Tacoma Jazz and Blues Festival and now have set up this site to help support live jazz in Tacoma.

What Rich is saying about this Meetup Group

A great group connecting Tacoma music fans and musicians to some of the most fun local jazz and blues in the area, fun people and great shows.
