SJZ Break Room Sessions

Located on the corner of First and San Carlos Streets in Downtown San Jose, our pop-up venue has been providing a unique and intimate way to experience live music since 2020. Sporting a video wall which projects events to the street, a brand new mural by designer Ben Henderson and a sound/video crew that streams most events, the SJZ Break Room is a physical space where music and technology meet. 

Here are just a few of the amazing musicians who have performed in the space in the last few years. Find more SJZ Break Room videos on our YouTube page
