I love the CJO. They always give an excellent show and performance. The Southern Theater is for me the perfect place to hear them.

This orchestra and Byron Stripling are top notch. The musicians are great professional musicians..and entertainers wrapped into one. I have never found a better Jazz venue

We have been season subscribers to the JAG for several years and would eat hot dogs or KFC to maintain our subscription. Weather seeing this dynamic orchestra at the Southern or Lincoln Theaters or outdoors at the Jazzoo, we have always left energized and smiling.

We attended a musical presentation from the Columbus Jazz Orchestra at the Southern Theater. Before intermission was the band, and after intermission was the band with a guest singer. Nice variety of songs and great quality.

Jazz Arts Group could be put up against any musicians anywhere. They are awesome! But in addition to the quality of their music, their showmanship is beyond compare. Byron Stripling is one of a kind! And their special guests are excellent.. I have never had anything but the very best of evenings at the Jazz Arts Group!

This group packs them in at the beautiful theater inside the Westin Hotel, where the acoustics do justice to the fine music.

I've been many times, but just saw Doc Severenson - and it was amazing. The restored Southern Theatre is a great space - the band is top notch. If you like Jazz, the great american songbook, or liked the commercial breaks of the Johnny Carson "Tonight Show" - you'll enjoy the CJO

Byron Stipling and his multi talented musicians will entertain you with their wide range of jazz, humor and top vocalists. Don't miss the Jazzoo at the Columbus Zoo each summer.

We are so lucky to have the Jazz Arts Group here in Columbus - the Columbus Jazz Orchestra puts on a great variety of performances throughout the year at the Southern and Lincoln Theaters and at the Columbus Zoo in the summer. There are often guest artists, but the orchestra and small ensembles are wonderful on their own as well,... More

First the good news: The CJO boasts some very skilled jazz musicians performing some great music in a wonderful old theatre downtown. They usually include some wonderful guest artists who are both outstanding performers and, also, seem to sincerely appreciate the talents of the musicians they're performing with. So, if you've never gone, you will not be disappointed. That said,... More
