Logo of Joplin's Java Cafe, Family Piano Company

Joplin's Java is the new music venue Waukegan has been waiting for! Never before has music been so up close and personal. The musicians share a very intimate experience with the audience just like jazz clubs from the past. Our capacity crowd is roughly 50, so plan ahead and call for a reservation for that specific event if you wish to.

Partnering with Jerry's Tacos: We're very excited to be partnering with one of the hottest new restaurants in downtown Waukegan. We will have a concert every Saturday night, BUT WE'LL BE ALTERNATING LOCATIONS WITH JERRY'S TACOS. So one week it will be Joplin's, the next it will be Jerry's, then Joplin's, then Jerry's, etc.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
