In September 2013, the previous organizer stepped down and the current organizer stepped up to help organize the Live Jazz and Blues in SLC Meetup group. The first thing the new organizer did was solicit the help of a few dedicated jazz and blues fans who were already members of the group to try to figure out innovative ways to breathe new life back into the membership of this Meetup group.
Our intention with the Live Jazz and Blues in SLC Meetup group moving forward is to promote quality jazz and blues events and build community among the lovers and fans of jazz and blues music. We want to be a social group as much as we wish to promote quality jazz and blues music in the Salt Lake City area.
One of the first changes the new Organizer team made was to agree that there would be no self-hosted events. All Live Jazz and Blues in SLC Meetup group members can expect every event on our calendar to have an event host that they can recognize or identify at the venue when they show up for an event.
All members of the Meetup group are welcome to suggest live jazz and blues events in the SLC area, but only Organizers and Event Hosts will have the ability to create and announce events to the Meetup group. We encourage your participation as a member of this Meetup group and if you'd like to be more active as an Event Host or Organizer, please let one of the current organizers know. We're very easy to find and send private messages to from the left hand side of the Meetup website.
