Jazz Guide Magazine and JG Online

Advertise with Jazz Guide - working hard for the world of Jazz & Live Music.

Jazz Guide was, and still is, a free issue

A full colour monhly magazine full of Jazz & Live Music events around the UK and beyond.
Pre-covid around 40+ pages and currently around 24 pages full of varying events.

As many venues closed for varying reasons - toughened drink driving and no smoking laws to name but two, along came the w.w.w. with another challenge. The dominance of printed matter was suddenly under threat and changes became a necessity. The acceptance and reality of such a threat resulted in the embracing of the new www. phenomenon and an online presence became essential!  Then, just when you thought that was hard to handle, along came Coronavirus!!

Now in its 50th year, listing gigs | concerts | uk breaks | jazz festivals | jazz dining | overseas breaks | jazz bands | jazz venues | jazz artists and more, Jazz Guide magazine provides an attractive vehicle to put your message out there!

We offer a free, full colour artwork service in a fast, friendly and affordable manner.

In addition, we offer free packs of magazines,

I have worked with Terry @ The Jazz Guide for around 5 years and have been totally impressed with his efficiency, initiative and positive and helpful attitudes. His recent introduction of an ambitious but user-friendly website for ‘The Jazz Guide’ is a huge achievement on its own which offers new and invaluable opportunities to the jazz community. I enjoy his friendly company and appreciate his tireless devotion to the cause. I would recommend him as an invaluable friend to anyone involved in the jazz scene in the UK, Europe or beyond. ...Digby Fairweather.

“Running a monthly Jazz Club and annual Jazz Festival is greatly aided by the “Jazz Guide” publication and their website. It is a essential vehicle to enhance the awareness of the music, performers and events we devote our time to promote and organise and its publication has and does contribute to our success.
The friendly, considerate expertise provided by the Jazz Guide team is exemplary and well worth the expenditure. Our events are greatly aided by their initiative and technical expertise which is very much evidenced by the demand from our audiences for every edition of the publication” ...Graham & Maggie Smith - Pershore Jazz

Upton Jazz has been advertising with the Jazz Guide for many years. It’s the place our jazz fans go for news of the festival. The Jazz Guide website has been great in featuring our news, our bands and bringing our event to life. Many thanks from all at Upton Jazz,   ...Jon Parsons - Upton Jazz
