Begins Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 with Sojoy.
Button Factory Jazz is fully open to the public in the intimate space situated within the station’s walls, accented by the Button Factory Stage, and room for an attentive 50-60 person audience. The venue showcases an assortment of chairs throughout, as well as several non-matching, yet very comfortable couches that line the perimeter of the venue – fit for those folks who fall into them first. The series will feature an array of local and regional jazz musicians displaying their musical prowess, which is accessible to any open-minded individual seeking the thirst of a Thursday night spent basking in sonically mesmerizing treats.

“We are so excited to offer the new Button Factory Jazz series to the community,” said WSCA Board Member, Chris Hislop.“ Jazz has long been an integral thread of the seacoast area cultural fabric, and the Button Factory Stage here at WSCA is a welcoming space for any degree of music listener looking to expose themselves to otherworldly performances from the depths of a couch not situated in their own living room at home.
Admittance is a mere $8-10 suggested donation with majority of the proceeds going directly to the artist and a small percentage benefiting the station which is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization run solely by community minded volunteers. Get in, get hip, get involved.
