About JAMM

The first JAMM (The Jazz Alliance of Mid-Michigan) meeting was held on Monday, September 29, 2009 at the home of Lois Mummaw and Gregg Hill. Lois and Gregg gathered together a number of fellow jazz lovers to explore possibilities for live jazz in Mid-Michigan. Many of these interested folks were musicians, patrons, promoters, business owners, and some just curious friends. The Michigan economy was spiraling downward and venues for jazz in the area were rapidly disappearing. After just two months of organizing, JAMM held its first major event on January 24, 2010 with a tribute to pianist Sandy Izerson at Perspective2 in Old Town Lansing.

JAMM now has over 100 founding members, a growing mailing list of over 2000 people and has already had a noticeable impact on the enthusiasm toward live jazz in this region.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
