All About Jazz polls our readership from time to time. Here are the results from the 2013 Jazz Near You survey.
In a nutshell: most jazz fans attend one concert a month and plan for it weeks in advance; learn about events mostly from friends; like the Blues; prefer intimate venues; attend one festival per year; travel up to 100 miles; are 40+ years of age, and men.
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.
