The main Jazz & Blues website  – www.JazzBluesFlorida.com – contains multiple facets and areas of interest for our visitors. The home page of our website identifies the JBF logo and has an option to join our mailing list. Unlike other entities, Jazz & Blues Florida only sends music news to you based on your preferences for type of music interest, region of the state, and your choice of email frequency.

Banners at top, bottom and the right side of all website pages are paid promotional advertisements by our clients from and in the music scene. The tabs below the JBF logo take you to other areas of the site including our very popular jazz and blues news blog . “Music Listings” provides hundreds of current and upcoming listings for clubs, concerts and festivals throughout the state of Florida, and is organized by region. JBF artist and venue clients are highlighted, linked, and mapped. Free listings are available by following the submission guidelines (see top of each region page).

JBF has an extensive years-long and continually updated library of photos and videos from music events in the jazz and blues world of Florida. Several places to view these are our Facebook page , our JBF YouTube channel , and our Blog. We post mostly short video clips of live performances to share what we are experiencing – and in many instances, to give you time to make it there for the show! We are not claiming to be professional videographers – but we DO confess to being genuine music lovers!

There are many services we can offer a potential client that we will be more than happy to discuss with you via email or phone. Our rates are more than affordable for the exposure you receive from our large data base of subscribers and contacts. We report real, substantiated numbers (www.JazzBluesFlorida.com/reports) and are willing to provide any information requested that does not violate the trust put in us by our clients or readers.  Please contact us if this interests you!

We welcome new readers as well as advertisers to the Jazz & Blues Florida family. We strive to support and promote real music, by real people, in real places. We hope to see you out there in the music scene!
