I had a specific venue in mind when I began to create this animated short, but the dialog is actually a composite of conversations I had with several jazz presenters in 2010. The challenges have already carried over into 2011. I went to two jazz-oriented venues on January 1. The first club didn't have the show listed online and the headliner has absolutely no web presence. An audience of nine people caught the majority of the first set. At the second venue, I couldn't find anyone willing to take the five dollar cover charge from me. And citing the full room, a waiter suggested that he'd prefer not to take my table's drink orders.
