An update for supporters of Hermann’s.
Jazz on View has now achieved its goal of signing a five-year lease to operate Hermann’s Jazz Club and the View Street Social Club next door.
All operations and licences were transferred from the current owners (Hermann Nieweler’s three children) by July 15. In the first month The board has worked to have the kitchen and safety equipment upgraded.
Of course Hermann’s will always be Hermann’s.

Hermann’s Jazz Club is a special place.
Live music venues are important to people from so many walks of life for so many reasons. I have had the liberty of seeing these letters pour in over the last few weeks and let me say it is a beautiful experience. No one person can define why Hermann’s Jazz Club is important – this is the village. Together we are telling the story of why we should save this place and what we want to protect for the future.
The number one reason to date has been mental health and well-being of audience members. Second place, opportunities for young musicians to experience the stage…third is the frustration with society’s displacement of live performance via high rise desires.
Musicians, audience members, musicologists, lovers of jazz and live music – submit your letter or video of support.
