  1. My goodness! Do you type all this in and update yourself?

  2. There are only two of us that maintain the listings. The vast majority of these listings are unpaid for placement and all are totally free for access. This is why it is important for venues and artists that want to be in the listings to follow the submission guidelines - the volume combined with incomplete and disorganized submissions is just too much to handle. Thanks for asking!

  3. This is what music lovers do - when they are not out listening to live music (mostly by those who support JBF w/their promotions/ ads/ banners/ premium listings/ etc...) These types of things are the life blood that keeps this going and allows us the pleasure of bringing all this and more to all you other music lovers & makers around the state of Florida!
