BISS LIST SPECIAL EDITION: BEST OF NOLA NIGHTS: JAZZ FEST 2018

 
NOLA JAZZ FEST, 2018
Happy NOLA Jazz Fest 2018 my dear BISS Listers!!  

When I say that, I know that there is a large number of you reading this who are tingling at the mention of those words. It doesn't matter if you are performing, attending or coordinating, this is one of those annual pilgrimages that so many of us plan to make every year with no hesitation or knowledge of "who" might be there... 

I wonder to myself ever year as I put this together if any other city/scene, aside from New Orleans herself, has such a contingency of music freaks as we, from the SF Bay Area do for these two weeks every year?

We will continue to update this page as more shows come in! Make sure you read ALL the way down for all the shows you can WIN TICKETS to!!




Look for *WIN TICKETS* under each banner. Then read on for rules on how to enter...

*By spreading the word*


FIRST, look through the NOLA BISS Calendar for shows that are marked
 with *WIN TICKETS* OR just SCROLL DOWN TO THE LIST OF SHOWS BELOW. 


SECOND, spread the word about the show you want to win by sharing the information with your friends. Share the event info with your friends. This could be sharing the event or poster image online thru Facebook or Twitter or some other Social Media platform. For those of you NOT on Facebook.... (yes, I know there are a few of you out there), you could send a group email or text. Or maybe you'll hang some signs on the bathroom wall at your office. (I say this because it HAS been done before). Maybe you just have a big loud mouth and you yell about it on the corner outside another show. No matter which way you choose, this is the first part of the contest so find a way to show us what you've done to spread the word when you email biss@bisslist.com to enter.



You all would be surprised at how many shows go without winners just because people think that they would never win. I mean what band/venue doesn't want to make the extra money on ticket SALES over GIVEAWAYS but then again, why not try and see what happens!?
