Victoria Jazz Society

The Victoria Jazz Society’s mission is to enrich our community by presenting all styles of live jazz music and its associated genres, blues and world music, in performances as well as through educational workshops and community outreach programs.


The Victoria Jazz Society was founded in 1981. We produce two major multi-day music festivals every summer, TD Victoria International JazzFest, and the Harbour Blues ‘n Roots Festival, as well as a series of concerts from September to May every year.

Listening to BADBADNOTGOOD today at the VJS office! From their recent Juno-nominated album, 'Talk Memory.' Tickets are available for their TD Victoria JazzFest appearance on June 28th at the McPherson Playhouse!

“Sona Jobarteh is Africa’s first female griot kora virtuoso, and also a fine singer and composer, blending traditional music, blues and Afropop to impressive effect.” Tickets are now available for her McPherson Playhouse performance plus STORRY on Monday, June 26. Info in bio!

"Molly Johnson's voice evokes the aura of dark smoky nightclubs of a bygone era. It speaks to an emotional depth that few vocalists in any genre ever reach."

Tickets are available for her June 23 performance at the McPherson Playhouse. More info at!
