About Tri-State Jazz Society and Membership


Membership Information


Tri-State Jazz Society, formed in 1988, is dedicated to the preservation and live performance of early jazz, including traditional New Orleans, Dixieland, swing, ragtime, stride piano and boogie-woogie.

The society’s concerts feature leading professional small bands and soloists. All events are open to the public and anyone who enjoys traditional jazz is invited to join. Monthly concerts are presented in Wallingford, PA and Haddonfield New Jersey to serve the entire Delaware Valley.

The society is a non-profit educational corporation supported by its members.


Non-members attending their first Tri-State Jazz Society concert are admitted for half price (usually $10). This is a promotional price to introduce people to traditional jazz and it is not offered to non-members when they return for another concert, or to former members. Anyone ineligible for half-price admission will be invited to become a member or pay full-price general admission (usually $20).


Members pay half the General Admission price ($10 when the full price is $20) for all regular concerts throughout the membership year. It pays to be a member even if you attend just two concerts a year, but after the second concert, members continue saving $10 per concert, compared to non-member rates.

If you have never been a member of Tri-State Jazz Society, your new membership includes free admission to your first concert as a new member. This is a promotional benefit for new members and is not available for renewing members or to reactivate expired memberships.

Members receive the monthly Strutter newsletter by email free of charge. US mail delivery of printed newsletters is available for Sponsor, Patron and Sustainer levels of membership. The electronic version of the Strutter is also available free to non-members by subscribing at the Newsletter menu.


Dues are $20 per person. A membership year runs for 12 months, expiring on the last day of the 12th month. Click HERE for a membership application form.


Tri-State Jazz Society depends on the generous contributions of members because basic membership dues and concert admission charges do not cover all costs. The board asks members to consider renewing their memberships at the Sponsor, Patron or Sustainer level if they are able to do so. These levels of membership are described on the Donations page.


The Strutter is a monthly newsletter distributed by email free of charge to members and non-members. You can also read or download the Strutter from this website from the Newsletter menu item. Membership notices are delivered by mail to members who do not have email, but concert notices and all other communications are sent by email only.
