I'm a freelance writer by day and a working jazz musician by night, and often I am able to combine my two lines of work. This blog is for posting gigs & various rants about music and life in general.

310 and counting

Fellow bloggers: do you ever check to see how many profile views you've had? I do occasionally, and apparently this blog has been viewed 310 times. I don't think that's a lot considering it's been active for 4 years now, but then again, my postings have been somewhat infrequent. Funny thing is, my mom blog has 311 profile views. It's newer but I tend to update it more often. I know this info has nothing to do with music but I thought the fact that the numbers are so close was interesting.

I just finished putting together the latest issue of the Central Illinois Jazz Society's newsletter and discovered I was hard-pressed to find local, non-steady gigs to list (we are fortunate to have a variety of regular jazz performances in the area, however). Seems now that summer is over and the glory of outdoor gigs is a thing of the past, we're back to club-only performances. So, if anyone in the Central IL area has a public JAZZ gig to announce, please let me know and I'll include it in the next issue!
