About Mike Jeffers

I first started out as a musician on a full scholarship to one of the top music schools in the country, the University of North Texas. After returning to Chicago I saw a need to help promote the music scene so I founded ChicagoJazz.com in 1999 and then in 2002 I launched the print magazine Chicago Jazz Magazine.


After the launch of Chicago Jazz Magazine I began getting inquiries from brides, grooms and corporate event coordinators asking me if I could help them plan and contract music for a wedding ceremony, a cocktail/dinner party or a corporate reception. Because I published Chicago Jazz Magazine and I am a musician they trusted my advice and saw that I had many differnt options for entertainment.


In 2004 I started this website, ChicagoJazzEntertainment.com while I was helping to provide music on a weekly bassis for celebrity events, corporate and VIP receptions, weddings and private parties at the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago. Since that time I have continued to help create events with quality musicians that look great and sound incredible.

I realize there are many websites out there that have jazz groups available but this is the only website that is 100% guaranteed by Chicago Jazz Magazine and ChicagoJazz.com, the #1 resource’s for jazz entertainment in Chicago.

I look forward to answering any questions you might have and hopefully working with to create the perfect atmosphere for your upcoming event!

Best Regards
