The Bebop Brigade
The Wichita Jazz Festival expands and enriches opportunities for jazz performance and education in our local communities. Wichita Jazz Festival's Bebop Brigade has long been the most stalwart (and obviously hippest) club in the city, with great folks supporting the best jazz in OUR town.
But we need your assistance!
We have developed a more flexible system for giving to the Wichita Jazz Festival. In the past, we had a single level to be a member of the Bebop Brigade. The benefits of the Brigade haven't changed, but we wanted to offer more options for the level of support with which you feel comfortable.
Here are the levels and benefits associated with giving to WJF. Remember, all donations are tax deductible.
