The American Jazz Museum's Blue Room jazz club is the first among two Kansas City venues to be named to Down Beat Magazine's “212 Great Jazz Rooms—An International Listing of the Best Places to See and Hear Live Jazz." The Blue Room was also distinguished by a gold highlighted listing.

“We are pleased, humbled and grateful at receiving this type of unsolicited recognition because it validates our constant quest to present high quality music that perpetuates the art form and remains relevant to our public,"said Blue Room General Manager and Director of Entertainment, Gerald Dunn.

American Jazz Museum CEO, Greg Carroll added, “When a publication like Down Beat consistently recognizes the quality of our programs on an international level, it reflects positively. It is a positive reflection upon the work we do each day at the museum. And equally illuminates the tangible support we have consistently received from the Kansas City community at large in terms of sponsoring and attending our events," Carroll concluded.

Down Beat is an American magazine devoted to “jazz, blues and beyond" that was initially established in 1934 in Chicago, Illinois. Down Beat publishes surveys of both its readers and critics in a variety of categories. Down Beat is well-known for its “Reviews" section and is arguably among the most objectively esteemed publications covering the music industry over several decades. Also see:
