Want to join us as a volunteer?

How about joining the team of students volunteering 1-2 nights a month at Jazzhus Montmartre assisting visiting artists and guests?

We are looking for young jazz lovers who would like to be part of the Montmartre family. Montmartre is mainly run by volunteers. We make sure that our guests and artists have a great time. As we are a non-profit organisation running on a shoe string budget, we can not pay a traditional salary. However we offer great experiences in the coolest jazz club in Copenhagen plus a generous voucher for the bar when you are on duty.

And most importantly; you get to meet some of the world's best jazz artists and hear some of the greatest jazz on the globe.

You must be able to commit at least two concert nights per month and love to be around other people. If you are interested in hearing more please send a mail with information about yourself to info (a)
