Chico's House of Jazz

Chico's House of Jazz is Rouse Jr’s way of paying homage to and carrying on the legacy of his father, the great Charles Rouse. Best known for his years of work as a tenor sax player alongside the widely admired Thelonious Monk; Charles Rouse has influenced and continues to influence millions of people around the world.

Chico wishes not only to honor his father with this club, but to also bring back the rich and unique world of Jazz that has seemingly taken a back seat to other music genres for the past few decades.

When it comes to the entertainment and music industry, Charles “Chico” Rouse Jr. has the most important skill one can possess: experience. He has twenty-five years of combined experience as a producer and promoter for artists such as the acclaimed blues guitarist and singer-songwriter, B.B. King, to the likes of rapper and actor, 50 Cent. Chico has also committed himself to bettering his community by producing local events held in Asbury Park, Long Branch, and Red Bank.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
