For five weekends from October through March, world-class jazz comes to Oxford Hotel Bend’s intimate jazz ballroom located in the heart of downtown Bend. A limited number of Series Passes for the Ninth Annual BendBroadband’s Jazz at the Oxford are now available for sale online or by phone.
Produced by Billboard-charting jazz musician Patrick Lamb of Patrick Lamb Productions, the 2018-2019 lineup begins in October with the effortless fusion of jazz, blues and rock from Grammy winner Lee Ritenour. November’s shows feature Guitar Legends 2018, a virtuoso guitar trio made up of Dan Balmer, Dan Faehnle and John Stowell. January brings a New Year as well as beautifully timeless, intoxicating vocals from singer Kat Edmonson. In February, we welcome a groundbreaking force among the sax elite: Paul Taylor. The ninth series closes in March with the soulful, smooth Frank McComb on keys and vocals.
“Every year, our team works diligently to make BendBroadband’s Jazz at the Oxford a well-rounded experience,” said Samuel Johnson, General Manager at Oxford Hotel Bend. “Our ballroom transforms into an intimate ‘jazz club’ where incredible performers engage with our audience.” Johnson also acknowledges the support from local sponsors, without whom the series wouldn’t exist. “This series has grown over the last nine years, and we remain grateful for the unwavering support of our generous sponsors, as well as the Central Oregon community who warmly embrace our artists and sell out our series year after year.”
Shows will be at 7pm on Fridays, and at 5pm and 8pm on Saturdays. The complete artist lineup is as follows:
October 19-20: Lee Ritenour
November 16-17: Guitar Legends 2018 featuring Dan Balmer, Dan Faehnle and John Stowell

Workshops will be held on the Saturday of the performance weekend in October, January and February beginning at 11:15am in the lower level jazz room of Oxford Hotel Bend.
