Since 2003, local jazz fans and musicians have had a home at Tokyo Garden.

On the first Sunday of every month, local pianist and jazz educator Craig Von Berg hosts a jam session with his trio, featuring John Lauffenburger on bass and Brian Hamada on drums. On the second Sunday of every month it’s the Richard Giddens Trio. On the third Sunday of the month, jazz guitarist and director of Jazz Studies at Fresno City College, Mike Dana hosts the session with his band. On the fourth Sunday of the month the jam is hosted by pianist David Aus.

The sessions begin at 6:00pm. See below for dates.

Tokyo Garden has remained one of Fresno’s favorite hangouts for musicians for decades, and is still one of the premiere Fresno locations to showcase local and touring acts.
