Jazz & Blues Florida January 2021 Issue Posted and New Website Now Active

The January 2021 Issue of Jazz & Blues Florida has been posted at for online reading and/or downloading. Another year, another milestone, with more just around the corner.

Today is also the launch of our new website with a new host on new servers. So, please understand that there is still work to do on full implementation and rollout as how running the same site on the same platform for over 10 years creates a large legacy of issues, some known and many to be found as we forge ahead. If you find errors, omissions or bad logic, please just let us know and we will work on getting it right. Oh, yes, I also want to mention a LEARNING CURVE that is being dealt with as hiring the work out to a developer simply isn't in the budget at this time as you all can understand.

The goal of the move and re-design, besides saving a ton of money for incredibly poor service over the lifetime of using the old service provider, is to slim-n-trim the content while returning to a true focus on our purpose - providing good information on live jazz and blues in Florida. There will be no out-sourced ads, no pop-ups, no use of data tracking to put content in front of you that is not directly fulfilling our purpose. Listings will be simple, straight-forward, and easy to access, and this will also allow us to lower our operating costs which will hopefully keep us in business. Please also note that we will continue with our 2019 pricing, as shown below on the rate sheet.

With these numbers/stats, we know Jazz Blues Florida is viable and provides services that are in demand by jazz and blues consumers:
