I wouldn't just think about music in San Jose. It's really about the Bay Area. San Jose is somewhat the southern tip of it all. San Francisco is a trivial drive to the North. Plus you have the East Bay corridor heading up into Oakland, Berkeley, and Concord.

A couple of hours Northeast of the Bay Area: Sacramento.

Santa Cruz is 30 minutes south of San Jose; Monterey, about 30 minutes further down the coast. Monterey has two music festivals of global reputation: the Monterey Bay Blues Festival and the Monterey Jazz Festival.

Within a couple hours of the Bay Area, you have access to all kinds of music and scenes.
