Mike Jeffers - Founder of Chicago Jazz Entertainment and Chicago Jazz Magazine
Thank you for your interest in Chicago Jazz Entertainment. I started this company because in 2002 when I launched the only print magazine covering jazz in Chicago, Chicago Jazz Magazine, I began receiving inquiry’s about I began receiving inquiry’s about who people could work with to hire entertainment for corporate receptions, weddings and private parties
Because I have been a musician for over 25 years, traveling and performing throughout the country, it was very easy for me to help coordinate event music and contract jazz trios, quartets, vocalists and wedding bands for clients.
I noticed how relieved many of my clients were to connect with me because I owned a magazine and had been in business for a few years at that time. They felt comfortable working with me, they liked the fact that I wasn't some random musician with a website and they knew I could provide them with a plan along with some options to create the right atmosphere for their event.
Then in 2004 I was contracted by the #1 hotel in North America at the time, the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago to provide weekly entertainment and work with guests who had corporate receptions, celebrity dinners, private parties and weddings.
It was about that time I launched ChicagoJazzEntertainment.com as a way to make it easy for people to hire the perfect entertainment for their next event.
Let me know if you have any questions or if you need a few options. I look forward to working with you to create the perfect atmosphere for your upcoming event.
