Jazz Music + Jazz Lovers + Lively Conversations = An Enjoyable Time.
Through this shared time, we support Jazz, enjoy conversations and friendships are formed. The organizers appreciate the Jazz Lovers who have & continue to come out and join us for Jazz Music. Thanks!
JERSEY JAZZ MEETUP HISTORY
Fall 2009, friends Hope, Paula & Liz were playing board games at SJ Java Coffeehouse in Voorhees. Liz had an idea for creating a Jazz Meetup for the NJ area. Hope and Paula supported the idea. Winter of 2009, the creative process began for the Jersey Jazz Meetup Group. Hope would provide the Meetup Page support. Paula would provide useful advice pertaining to Meetup Groups. Liz would handle finding the Jazz venues, shows and concerts. It is now 3 years later and we continue to go strong with over 150 Meetups.
Thanks to the Jazz Lovers for supporting this idea and making into
and a reality.

In order to be a member of this Meetup Group, we require everyone to post a photo of himself/herself. Cartoons, caricatures or avatars are NOT acceptable. We require a photo because we believe that providing a picture and your name gives us some assurance of who we are meeting. It is also helpful to the organizers to be able to find our members in a crowd. With a picture in hand, we know exactly who we are looking for as well as give us a level of comfort when meeting people for the first time. Our pictures are posted to give our members the same level of comfort when meeting us.
