502, and the move to end all moves...

Read "502, and the move to end all moves..." written by Michael Ricci

As my high school wrestling coach used to say, “no pain, no gain." Well, that adage certainly applies to our server migration project. With new servers, a new architecture and a new framework (coming soon), we fully expected to hit a few snags along the way. The good news is we're identifying issues and resolving them faster than before, which means the bulk of the post-migration issues are mostly behind us. Hallelujah! If you received a 502 error ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
