The Saskatoon Jazz Society (SJS), is a not-for-profit community-based organization, has been a vital part of the Saskatoon music scene for over 40 years. The SJS strives to meet its mandate to present, promote, and foster the art of jazz music in our community a number of ways. The SJS is the sole member of the Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival and as such oversees the Festival at arm’s length to enure that it continues to offer jazz quality programming while maintaining a prudent and competitive business model. The SJS owns and operates a 180 seat live music venue, The Bassment. Of the 180 shows presented at The Bassment each year, approximately 120 fall under the jazz category. The SJS seeks to help in the development of younger jazz musicians by presenting monthly Jazz Jams, High School Big Band Nights, University of Saskatchewan Jazz Ensemble performances, and a $10 student price to all ticketed performances.
