Our story starts with a question: Where do you find jazz in Tulsa? There were very few answers.
“So many great musicians and their music was so good and yet very few in the city really knew all this incredible jazz was happening”. After talking to several artists our Founder John Taylor decided to create an online calendar where everyone could have their gigs (shows) posted. The idea was that the artists would mention and promote the site at their shows, John would do the online promotion, and with everyone working together several things could be accomplished:
- Let the public know where and when they could enjoy live jazz.
- The venues offering live jazz would get more exposure targeted at a demographic they’re already trying to reach.
- TulsaJazz.Com could become a major resource for jazz information in Tulsa.
Tulsa now has a thriving jazz community. From a city that just a few years ago only had a few places that regularly offered live jazz to now averaging 30+ live events per week (Covid-19 has impacted these numbers)! This previously quiet Jazz city is now a growing, active, vibrant jazz environment with national recognition.
For TulsaJazz.com, it has been an honor to be a part of the success of jazz in Tulsa, seeing the city’s music scene flourish as a whole and watching people with dreams of a music career have the opportunity to achieve them.
TulsaJazz.com is now a nationally recognized company offering Music Management, Booking Services, and Social Media/Website Management. John says, “The Company was founded on the philosophy of helping people with passion and a dream, achieve it, and our continued focus on that philosophy is the reason for our current and the catalyst for our future success.”
