UPDATE: PHOTOS FROM 2012 SATELLITE PARTIES
Jazz happens everywhere-- and the JJA Jazz Awards will be celebrated everywhere during the month of June. In a number of places, local jazz fans and supporters will gather at informal "satellite parties" to honor a a local Jazz Hero, share notes and plans for the coming year and affirm that jazz is alive and well in their communities.
 There may be a satellite party near you: Each party is different and is being organized by local hosts. All are open to the public; most are free (a few have a small suggested donation or cover charge). Some will feature live music; many will offer free Brother Thelonious Ale, courtesy of JJA Jazz Awards sponsor North Coast Brewing Company.  Please be sure to check the local party websites and contacts below for details, which may have changed since this page was published.
