Jazz Lab

The UCO Jazz Lab keeps Edmond rockin’ with live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights…and that’s just the beginning! Chances are you’ve never seen anything like it! The Jazz Lab serves as a state-of-the art music learning center and recording studio during the day, and at night it turns into a live music club. We boast an intimate, family-friendly, non-smoking environment. We’ve even teamed up with the neighboring Hideaway Pizza to provide a full service bar with food inside the Lab. Besides its normal Thursday-Saturday schedule, the Jazz Lab hosts performers on other nights, including performances by UCO’s award-winning Jazz Ensembles and Combos as well as performances from music legends like Maynard Ferguson, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Chick Corea. Our schedule also includes special shows featuring our talented vocal music students. We also celebrate the holidays with special events like our annual Christmas Music Revue and New Year’s Eve Party.

The UCO Jazz Lab opened to the public in March 2002. Since that time, the Lab has won "Best Place for Live Music" multiple times in the Edmond Life & Leisure's Reader's Choice annual poll, and has been repeatedly included as a finalist for Best Live Music Venue in the Oklahoma Gazette’s Best of OKC readers’ poll and as a finalist and winner for Best Place for Live Jazz/Blues Music in the Daily Oklahoman’s Readers’ Choice.

The UCO Jazz Lab is located at 100 E. 5th St. in Edmond, off Littler Avenue between Boulevard and Broadway. Most nights, the music begins at 8pm and admission is $7. Reserve seats by calling (405) 974-2100. Check out the UCO Jazz Lab’s website for a schedule of performers, and come see what everyone is talking about!
