Hello Smooth Jazz friends,
I have some news to share about our future at the Ozone. Everything has a season and our season at the Ozone will be over on February 26th. We have had a good run for 8 years. My goal has always been to keep Smooth Jazz alive in Omaha, and I along with others have accomplished this goal. We now have at least 4 venues who are booking regular Smooth Jazz (and a few of them on Thursday nights), the Omaha Lounge, Sullivans, Rhythmz Lounge and Loves Jazz Museum. In addition, when the summer starts we compete with 12 – 16 weeks of Jazz on the Green and the end of summer concert series. This makes Thursdays even more difficult to hold regular Smooth Jazz events at the Ozone.
I am not sure what we will do with the Society, or Thursday nights, so please stay tuned as we decide our next move. In the meantime, we have 3 great weeks left…. Chad Stoner, Clark & Co., and the last night featuring The Kevin Kelley Band. It’s Kevin’s birthday, and our Smooth Jazz going away party, so please come out to celebrate our success!
