“Drinky” is a new philosophy for you to relish jazz.

I coined the phrase “drinky jazz” for a special reason. I’ve always yearned for people to see that jazz is fun music. But often just the mention of “jazz” freaks people out. When jazz is  brought up in conversation many people react by tensing up. Then they almost always they say, “I don’t like jazz”.

When I mention the idea of “drinky jazz” to people they almost magically open up to jazz. “Drinky jazz” lets you drop the notion that all jazz is weird or “thinky”. “Drinky jazz” is fun because it’s designed to be pleasing and interactive. You can bring your funnest friends along to eat, drink and laugh. Talk if you want to. If I’m doing my job singing “drinky jazz” I will EARN your ears.

This “drinky jazz” philosophy promises you three things: great songs, cold drinks and bad jokes. I hope “Drinky” is the mark of a new jazz movement where you can discover the joy of jazz. It’s incredible music with the most talented musicians anywhere. Let’s go on this journey together and most of all let’s have fun with a bit of swinging music!
