Help Us Keep Hermann's Jazz Club Live - Learn More Here

History

Hermann’s Jazz Club began 36 years ago at the Bastion Inn when Hermann Nieweler [Knee-well-er] was persuaded by his friend Barry Stubbs to book Friday Harbor’s Island City Jazz Band for a weekend performance at his hotel. Hermann’s love for a good party, the music and the patrons had him establish the Dixieland Inn at the hotel.

Hermann moved the club to the current View Street location in 1986 when it was renamed “Hermann’s Jazz Club”. In 2000 our 753 View street location suffered heavy damage from a fire. A testament to his commitment, Hermann rebuilt at great personal expense. Our friend Hermann passed on June 10th, 2015. His family continues to be dedicated to this very special venue and our community is trying to preserve the venue. https://jazzonview.com/

Many nationally and internationally acclaimed acts have graced our stage. Long time bands at the club include CanUS Hot Jazz Band, the Tom Vickery Trio and Dixieland Express. Now there are another two generations of musicians performing in what is an ever growing list of wonderful performers and good times. As a music listening room with a casual atmosphere, today Hermann's Jazz Club is a landmark in the world of modern live performance.
