Significant Dates in BJS History

The Brookfield Jazz Society (BJS) started in the basement of Village Hall with only 15 people, a couple of Jazz CDs, and an idea that would bring people from all over the world together in one place to enjoy Jazz and all that is has to offer. For more than a decade, the BJS has achieved many milestones on its journey to support Jazz in Brookfield and the surrounding communities. This page it dedicated to some of those Historic Milestones.
