Hiya, jazzers! A reminder that the musicians in the group are authorized to post their own gigs on the calendar. Go to the "Meetups" tab at the top of the home page, and click on "Calendar" on the drop-down menu. When you put your mouse cursor on any date, two little icons will pop up on that date. Click on the little icon on the left is to schedule a meetup (where members are specifically invited to attend as a social / musical event), and the little icon on the right will post the gig on the calendar as information.
Any musician can also schedule a jazz jam, for whoever wants to show up and play (or listen).
Additionally, any member, musician and non-musician, can post an idea about something they'd like to do, under the "Ideas" tab on the top of the home page.
The purpose of the group is to promote local jazz in the Boulder area. You can find out what jazz events are happening in the area, and arrange to meet new friends who love jazz -- either to go to various Boulder area jazz clubs with, or to find other jazz musicians you might want to play with.
Upcoming jazz events: All members can view jazz events and upcoming gigs. To see what events have been posted, go to "Meetups" on the top blue bar, and go to "Calendar" on the drop-down menu.
Have an idea? Any member can also post a suggestion under "Ideas," also on the top blue menu bar.
To post a jazz event: The calendar is where musicians can post their jazz event, or read about events that others have posted there. Some of the events are scheduled as "meetups," with RSVP's and email reminders. Others are just posted for info on the calendar. In either case, it's the place to list or to read about upcoming events. How to post: (musicians only) Put your cursor on the calendar date when your event is happening. You'll see two icons pop up. Click on the yellow icon on the right, and you'll get to a screen where you can post details about your jazz event. If you click on the left little icon, you'll get to a screen to post it as a "meetup," with follow-up RSVP requests and emails. Contact me if you have q's or probs doing this - I'm at email@example.com . --Jane

My own background: I play jazz and classical violin, and love to play with other local jazzers and to accompany members to various venues like St. Julien, Nissi's, Cafe de Paris, Caffe Sole, Cuvee, the Boulder Outlook Hotel, The Boulderado Mezz, Dazzle in Denver, and other places jazz is happenin'. --Jane, group organizer
