We have a vision. But we need your help.
The calendar and directory programs we’ve added to this site have a ton of potential. If people are really using them there are upgrades we could get to make them even better in the future. If you are on our page you probably have an association of some kind with a business or organization related to traditional jazz. At a minimum you have a few websites you admire for helping to educate you or entertain your passion for OKOM.
Please take a few minutes and add a few sites to our directory or add traditional jazz and swing events to our calendar. No one will know you did, unless you tell them, but you can feel like you did your part. There are a lot of links lists out there buried on rarely visited or updated club pages. This can be something better. Because each listing actually has information about the featured organizations it will help users find what they are looking for without the frustrations of a google search or the wasted time following dead links on an abandoned webpage.
Our hope is that someone trying to book a trad band, find a swing dance instructor, or join a jazz club near them, will be able to find the information they need here, and maybe some information about your group at the same time. We aren’t trying to make money from the directory, we’re in the business of selling papers, but we would love to become a central gathering spot for the hot jazz, ragtime and swing communities. There are a lot more fans of this music than anyone realizes, it’s time we all got together and said hello.
