Our weekly open stage Jazz jam session.
Hi folks. Please don't ignore this note. A couple of days ago I got this from the co-owner of the Thunderbird Cafe....
"To be honest I'm not sure how much longer the whole jazz appreciation thing is going to make sense. There's really not enough business."
Jazz fans...we need to make this make sense. I know there is strength in numbers.
I have been trying to make this work for nearly two years now but there is a serious attendance problem not only for attending the weekly session at the Thunderbird Cafe but overall.
To be honest with you we need 50 or more people to show up each week. I know everyone can not make it each time, but there has not been a significant number of people coming.
When I started this event almost two years ago we averaged 100 people on a once a month basis.
Please tell other Jazz Fans, your friends and other to show up at our next three sessions.
Yes...it's that urgent.
The creator works in myterious ways. Yesterday I ran in Mr. Horace Turner. The first thing he said to me is that I was one of the young men he brought up.
I explained to him what was happening with the jam session and he agreed that getting folks to come out is very hard.
But you know what else he said to me? "Hang in there..it's gonna work for you"
