Timothy J. O'Keefe

Tim O'Keefe covers jazz in the Boston area.

About Me

I grew up in Everett, Massachusetts, a working-class city adjacent to Boston. While in Everett, I did my best to take full advantage of what Boston has to offer: I studied music from Berklee students who were looking to make ends meet, learned martial arts in Boston's Chinatown community, and attended numerous music performances.

I have writing degree from Northeastern University, located on Boston's Avenue of the Arts. I'm active on the competition barbecue circuit, and co-wrote three cookbooks, but I always find happiness in writing about jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
