Bear's Place hosts one of Bloomington's longest running Jazz show celebrating local and national talent. Proud to host some of IU's Jacob's School of Music staff, students and professors. Great Jazz in an intimate environment, the way its supposed to be.

Songwriter's Showcase

Inspired by their experiences playing and attending songwriter's showcases in Nashville, TN, 'Stella and Jane' members Suzette Weakley (Stella) and Bobbie Lancaster (Jane) decided that they needed to bring a similar experience back home to the fertile musical soil of Bloomington, Indiana, and just maybe help put this place on the map as the musical mecca that it ought to be, given all the talent running around both the town and the region. 


Tuesdays starting at 8pm
