The associated news blog, , exceeded 11,000 page views in the trailing month and now numbers over 165,000 lifetime views.

….Blues bands, fans and venues are alive and kicking in Florida.  I wouldn't say all is well but it is better than it has been the last few years. No one is getting rich but jazz and blues are live from Key West to Pensacola.  JBF has been a big part of that and I thank you for all you do.
Keep up the good stuff!

Peace, brother.

Good morning my friend nice speaking with you while at NOLA Jazz Fest .. Just a quick note .. As I told you Footsteps my non-profit is doing a Jazz Concert featuring Ira Sullivan . I have worked with an awesome man Charlie Boyer from JazzBlues Fl who has helped us promote our event.. works all over the country .. The reason I want to intro you two is I have had awesome results with his help and major professional, quick , affordable and easy . So awesome that I started receiving phone calls within 30 minutes of his emails.. even the local Newspaper her picked up on it and contacted him for more info..
Anyway my friend regardless think you two may have lots in common.. as he said when I asked if her knew you ..
Jazz Blues Florida started out as Hot House Florida, a child of Hot House New York, the jazz bible up there.

Met you once at a Four Freshman concert in Ft. Lauderdale.  You were still publishing Heat Beat (Hot House) as I recall.  Just want to thank you for putting this online and for helping me keep up with the South Florida musicians since I don't get there much anymore even though I still have an apartment in Miami.  And though I never expected it, your addition of jazz news from all of Florida will allow me to visit a Panama City Beach jazz night this month--we have 4 timeshare weeks in PCB but rarely heard about jazz venues or festivals for last few years.  We live in San Antonio, TX where we have 5 big bands playing straight ahead jazz every month and we have a full time jazz radio station.  Aren't we lucky!
Thank you again.
