About BJP

BuckingJam Palace is a house concert venue in the historic district of Mount Royal in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is the 1910 home of the Buck family and was named by the scores of young jazz musicians who have rehearsed in the basement, jammed in the living room and filled our lives with music for the last decade.

Watching dedicated, talented musicians working hard to make a go of a music career in a cultural climate that’s often lacking in support lead us to establish our jazz series. What began as a family-run initiative has grown into the non-profit BJP Music Foundation. Our goal is draw together a welcoming community that is passionate about creating a culture where musicians are artistically and economically valued. We are a listening venue. We pay out some of the highest “club-gig” fees in North America. We provide a welcoming and flexible space for touring musicians who want to fit a Calgary date into their schedule, as well as local musicians looking for an intimate performance experience.

We believe the arts connects the very best parts of us. We believe that we all have a part to play as patrons, appreciators, creators.
