Jazz&Jazz: A Vital Announcement!

Jazz&Jazz is receiving a rapidly expanding local and worldwide following, reinforced by my linked Jazz&Jazz Social Media sites, the Facebook Jazzers Group and especially my Jazz&Jazz YouTube Channel.

As a result I am receiving more and more requests to promote events, functions and features. So much so that demands on my time are deflecting me from my aim of “Celebrating the Joy of Jazz”.

Previously I have simply asked for contributions via the Donate Button in the column to the right to help cover costs of fulfilling requests to feature events. But with minimal joy to date. So as of now I will need contributions to help cover costs of requested promotions and PR features.

Should you wish to comment on this please email:  jazzandjazz@icloud.com
