Friends of Athens Jazz?
Some of us have been kicking around the idea of an organization of some sort -- maybe a "Friends of Athens Jazz" -- to support jazz in our town and the surrounding area. We thought such a group could have an organizational role and a fund-raising role for local jazz initiatives, including partnering with the School of Music on the Twilight Jazz Festival. Is there enough enthusiasm for jazz in these parts to justify the time and money it would take to put together and run such an organization? Let me know what you think. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or post your ideas on my new Facebook Page for athensjazz411.com.
