The Colored Musicians Club is not only a museum, but it is also a jumping joint for jazz! Sunday night jam sessions are a special treat, and the annual Queen City Jazz Festival on July 27 from Noon – 8:00 PM will be held as a block party on Michigan Street between William and Broadway, right next to the Colored Musicians Club at 145 Broadway Avenue.
The Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission seeks to build partnerships with schools across Western New York to provide a field trip for every 4th, 5th or 6th grader as they study New York State and American History. Our historians and museum docents are working to develop curriculum aids to match the state history standards and learning timelines. Please send a message via our contact us form to organize a tour for your school, church youth group or community youth organization.
