      The Don Chisholm Friends of Jazz at Kerrytown Concert House is a membership group dedicated to supporting jazz programming at Kerrytown Concert House.

      The original purpose of the Friends of Jazz was to provide a platform for jazz in Ann Arbor when all of the local venues folded. In the 1990’s and early 2000’s, there were two prominent jazz clubs in Ann Arbor: The Bird of Paradise and The Firefly Club. Although there was an appetite for jazz performances in town, neither business was able to stay afloat. With the closures of these venues, there was a significant void of jazz in Arbor.

      Jazz fans Dallas Dort, John Lilley, and others, alongside musicians Ellen Rowe, Paul Keller, and Pete Siers, collaborated with KCH Founder and then Artistic Director Deanna Relyea to bring more Jazz programming to Kerrytown Concert House. It was during this time, that a jazz membership group was established at the House, named in honor of Don Chisholm, an Ann Arbor icon and supporter of local Jazz artists.

      As of 2024, the Don Chisholm Friends of Jazz at Kerrtytown Concert House is 30 members strong and continues to provide critical financial support for jazz programming. Many of the original members are still active audience members at the House.
