Pittsburgh JazzLive International

Janis Burley Wilson

5 years strong!
I can give you 5 reasons why the Pittsburgh JazzLive International Festival has become one of the most anticipated jazz events every year.

PJLIF brings you the best in jazz.  World renowned musicians grace our stages as well as new artists to watch.

We employ over 140 local musicians every year during the PJLIF which leads to more and more jazz every night of the week in our city.  There’s no place like Pittsburgh!

Every year, we make more friends and partners; Newport Jazz Festival, Jazzcorner.com, Modern Piano, University of Pittsburgh, Boyd & Blair Vodka, Pittsburgh Winery, North Coast Brewing Company, Courtyard Marriot, P & W Foreign Cars, Rivers Casino and more.  These companies believe in our mission and their support is vital to the continued success of PJLIF.

The vibe…”laid back, intimate and inviting” attracts people from all over the world.  The JazzLive Crawl, the concerts in the streets, the late night jam sessions and the customer service that we strive to for makes for a fantastic experience; something for everyone.

YOU make it all worthwhile with your support, your open ears and minds…we couldn’t do it without you.  Sponsors like R. K. Mellon Foundation, UPMC, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Macy’s, Dollar Bank, Rivers Casino, North Coast Brewing Company, P & W Motors and others help us bring the best to you.

Enjoy the music.
