a big event:-) ) says:

I'm finding that my local jazz contact email list is beginning to work
pretty well. Tony Davis and I put on occasional gigs in our village hall
and by far the best response for our next event has come via e-mail. This
contact list is only small but of 59 tickets sold so far, 33 have been
generated by my list (there are 22 names but some are bringing 4 friends!)
this beats putting posters on telegraph poles by a long way.
I'd be interested to hear a comparison between flyposting, snailmail shots,
jazz publication ads and local newspaper ads etc. from others; particularly
in the UK.
Will any lurkers be at the Rod Mason gig in Priors Marston tomorrow? and
will it just be J Petters, T Davis and me for the 6 am Face to Face on Sat
