Sat Jun 11 JJA Jazz Awards Gala: Participate wherever you are

The JJA Jazz Awards gala is coming up fast: Saturday June 11, 1-5pm EDT at City Winery in New York City. This star-studded event, m.c'd by Josh Jackson of  The Checkout from WBGO, will feature presentation of 39 awards for high achievement in jazz music and journalism as well as performances by Randy Weston, Wallace Roney, Gregory Porter, Jane Bunnett and Hilario Duran and the Hammer Klavier Trio.  Tickets are going fast, so buy them now .

Not going to be in NYC? You don't need to miss any of it . . .

There are many ways to participate wherever you are:

  • Satellite Parties Drop by one of the Awards satellite parties in Arcata or Berkeley CA, Boston, Chicago, Nashville, Portland OR, Seattle, Tallahassee FL or Washington D.C. where fellow jazz fans will be celebrating and watching the live webcast.

  • LIVE Webcast That's right, we'll be webcasting live video of all the performances and awards presentations via Ustream-- there's nothing to download or configure-- you can watch  right on your home computer or, with the easy-to-download Ustream app, you can watch it all live on your iPhone, Android, or Windows phone.

  • Live Tweet Finally, we'll be "live tweeting" the Awards winners as they are announced: You can follow it all on Twitter by searching for #jjajazzawards  or  on our website.

  • Donate And one more thing:  The JJA Jazz Awards gala is a fundraiser, so if you are enjoying the live webcast or satellite parties --or any other JJA programs-- please consider making a donation to help the JJA continue its work of spreading the word about jazz and developing new jazz audiences.

Get ready!   It's all happening this Saturday.
