Jazz@Rochester has been on Twitter for a long time and is closing in on 11,000 followers. We follow local jazz artists, jazz artists from elsewhere with a local connection, and more than a few of my favorite artists, websites, blogs and other jazz information sources. There are a number of the artists (in jazz and other genres) on Twitter appearing at this year's Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and so far I've found 90 of them and added them to a Twitter List. I'm afraid I regrettably have had to leave some off due to the noise their feed creates in the list (Erykah Badu's @fatbellybella account, with over 1M followers, just drowns everything out...).
It can be fun checking in on what XRIJF artists are doing before and after the festival, sharing relevant insights about them with my followers, and letting the artists know how much I enjoyed their performance at the festival. If you'd like to join that conversation, just click on the "tooting Tweeter" (or is it honking...?) to the right to check out our Twitter List and add it to your favorite Twitter client (or of course follow it directly on Twitter), or just follow the Jazz@Rochester Twitter feed (click on the blue Twitter bird at the top the middle column under Connect with Jazz@Rochester to check that out).
If you're appearing at XRIJF 2016 and are on Twitter and not on the List, please tweet to me (or contact me through the site) and let me know and I'll add you.
