All About Jazz Partners With RocketHub To Make Jazz Mobile

All About Jazz, the largest online jazz resource and community, has partnered with RocketHub, a grassroots crowdfunding community developed for Creatives by Creatives, to actively engage jazz fans across the world and to crowdfund an innovative mobile application.

Crowdfunding establishes a web-based event that harnesses an artist's or entrepreneur's network and audience for funds, awareness, and authentic feedback. It is a powerful new way to build financial support and public groundswell.

All About Jazz Founder, Michael Ricci, summed up the project: "Imagine walking in Greenwich Village or in Paris or London or Tokyo or wherever and checking the All About Jazz calendar app to see who is playing that night near you – then buying a ticket while mapping your way to the club. We're talking the most comprehensive global jazz calendar where every city is represented, every night. And we can do it with your help."
