If you have visited All About Jazz or Jazz Near You recently, you were no doubt greeted with a 502 or 503 or if you were really lucky, a 504 error message. Though the website has been generally responsive, we've also experienced slower than normal stretches. With expansion and new features on the horizon, we anticipate higher traffic demands, resulting in a greater burden on our server.
The good news is, we have a solution.
Some of All About Jazz already exists in the cloud, and we're preparing to move the rest of the website along with Jazz Near You in the coming weeks. We'll take full advantage of cloud computing, so expect greater security, increased capacity, and improved performance resulting in a much faster website. I'll have more news about our progress next week.
You can help defray the costs of this move by making a contribution to the All About Jazz fund drivejust click the green DONATE button on the navigation bar above.
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.
