STJS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of traditional jazz music. Its purpose is to educate STJS members and the public on matters concerning the preservation and promotion of traditional jazz music, and the study and playing of musical instruments associated with traditional jazz music.

STJS is proud to sponsor the annual Sacramento Music Festival every Memorial Day Wknd. since 1974.

On the 2nd Sunday of each month, everyone is welcome to attend our "Jazz Sunday" concerts for an afternoon of socializing and dancing to live music (in 3 rooms!) performed by jazz bands and special guest artists from around the country. Members get an admission discount.
