Hi folks, happy holidays! I have been very busy! I just updated the calendar though and there is lots to see and do! I wanted to let you know that my annual Christmas party is on Dec 19th at The Vineyard in Windermere! I went ahead and made that a meetup so that you all can enjoy as well! I will have some finger foods and be playing as well as having guest musicians from the area sitting in! Go ahead and rsvp for me though because I need to know how much chow to order! Also, If you live out in the Eustis way stop by at Jeffrey Pauls Chop House on Dec 13th 7:30 to 10;30pm! I will be there with Jillian Rocafort a incredible vocalist that I am working with now! Thanks!
Central Florida friends,fans and performers are gathering to hear live jazz. Whether it's traditional jazz, blues, New Orleans, big band swing, Gypsy, bebop, cool, Latin, soul jazz, funk or fusion, we support and encourage musicians who perform this endangered music. We agree with the United States Congress that jazz is "a rare and valuable national American treasure to which we should devote our attention, support and resources to make certain it is preserved, understood and promulgated."
Musicians are invited to become event organizers so they can post their gigs for the rest of the jazz community. We know that "playing" music is work -- the result of the musician's investment in lessons, learning materials, instruments and long hours of practice. We want you to get the word out to a self-selected group of jazz fans; better attendance at jazz gigs means more gigs for all of us. You may want to consider alternatives to club venues; as event organizers you could get upfront financial support from the members and know how many to expect at your event!
