About Bop Island

 

The Bop Island Jazz Festival was created out of the love and commitment of a small group of ardent jazz fans. We have three focuses:

  • The Bop Island Big Band
  • Bop Island Records

The Bop Island Jazz Festival is comprised of a stellar group of musicians and technicians participating in a series of performances at the Woodstock Playhouse. Please join us at this historic venue for world class artists presenting Jazz in an intimate setting.
