Celebrating Local 471 - The African American Jazz Preservation Society of Pittsburgh @ Wyndham Hotel, Oakland

  • Wyndham University Hotel 100 Lytton Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15213 United States (map)

The Musician’s Club of Musicians Union Local 471 was a lively after hours club that presented great jazz by local and national musicians for 30 years. It was located on the second floor of the Musicians Union Local 471 headquarters building at 1213 Wyle Avenue in Pittsburgh’s lower Hill District. The club was a piano bar and rehearsal space that was the vital social and creative hub for jazz musicians. It was the meeting place for African American and white musicians from all parts of Pittsburgh and the country. Pittsburgh and national musicians socialized, jammed, learned from each other, auditioned, formed bands, booked gigs, rehearsed, and performed at the club.

Join us as surviving members from Local 471 share their memories and music for an afternoon of jazz and more as AAJSPS celebrates the Musicians' Club.
Tickets are $25, including buffet.

The mission of the AAJPSP is to preserve, disseminate, and promote the history, accomplishments, and talents of the African American Jazz Experience
