I've been a jazz fanatic since I was a teen. Probably longer than that. My parents introduced me to Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Tito Puente. I'm familiar with quite a few jazz clubs in LA, but quite a few have closed in recent years.
It was a great event and if I wasn't a member of the group I might not have known about it. I think, though, the organzer or assistant should identify the group when new people arrive. Maybe greeting people at the door or maybe a small sign at a table to identify themselves. This was my first meet up.
