Happy New Year!
If you thought its been awhile since you've seen a Jazz Half Bulletin, you're not mistaken. We hope everyone has had a safe and wonderful Holiday season. As we all know, a new year brings new beginnings, fresh starts, and renewed hope.
While we all look forward to 2012 with optimism, certain events occur early on, causing the year to take shape, and gives us an encouraging sign of what's to come.
Such an event happens this week. The Jazz Half would like to congratulate The Blue Wisp Jazz Club with its successful relocation, and opening. The Blue Wisp is now located at 700 Race Street, at the corner of Race and Seventh. I don't have to tell you that this is HUGE. Now located near the center of downtown, very close to hotels and shops, and in the path of abundant foot traffic, the Blue Wisp has solidified its place as Cincinnati's Premium venue for live music going on 34 years strong. But wait, there's more.
Accompanying the new digs will be a new full service restaurant, with outdoor dining, an expanded bar, and the opportunity to join their new VIP Membership Club.
The club opens this Friday, with live music at 4:30. Come downtown and check out what the Blue Wisp has to offer. This club is making some great efforts to continue supporting musicians and live music here in the Queen City. Help them out by dropping in and seeing some of their many shows featuring local, regional, national, and international Artists. See you there!
