Keynote Jazz Overview

The 2021/22 season will also see the first Wednesday of every month devoted to jazz. In the Bar & Lounge of the Theater Casino Zug, we will once again be showcasing the who’s who of the Swiss jazz scene.

US jazz great Charlie Parker once said: «Jazz is more than just music, jazz is a way of life.» This also applies to the musicians that we will be serving up for you. They throw their heart and soul into improvisation, giving their creativity free rein and generating the kind of energy that will draw you in as you give yourself over to the spirit of jazz.
