The Treasure Coast Jazz Society was founded in 1986 by Ash Andon, Harry Buck and Chubby Jackson. We are a non-profit organization formed to encourage the performance, promotion and preservation of JAZZ — this unique American art form. Jazz has been recognized by the United States Congress as a “National Treasure.”
