Calendar Notes vs. Meetup Events

If you take a look at our calendar, you'll notice that, in addition to Meetup events for which you can RSVP, there are calendar notes for which you cannot.

These are not official Meetups, but merely concerts or events that might be of interest to fans of jazz and blues. Often, they are events for which no organizer was available, but that would be worth checking out anyway.

Please don't be shy about going to these things on your own; while this music is best enjoyed with others, it is still wonderful even if you're by yourself. And as anyone who has frequented good jazz and blues bars will tell you, rare is the jazz club where you won't be able to strike up at least a little conversation between sets with other jazz and blues fans.

Some of my best experiences have happened on solo forays into jazz clubs, like meeting Buddy Guy and Dan Ackroyd at Buddy's bar in Chicago, chatting with Kurt Elling between sets, and finding a temporary, but very welcoming, community among fellow jazz and blues fans.
