Jazz In Reading promote the best in live modern jazz in the Reading and Thames Valley area. Not only do they run their own jazz gigs in the area but also aim to provide a definitive list of all things jazz in the area.
We were approached to build them a new site, that would allow them to more easily share the gigs and events that they organised.
We built them a responsive website that includes a gig calendar. Every jazz gig in the area is added to the calendar and you can browse gigs by date as well as receiving alerts if you sign up. Every new gig they add to the calendar is auto posted to Facebook and Twitter (social media integration), making it easier for both the people that run the site, and the people that view the site, to keep up to date with everything and to make it easier to share what’s happening.
Regardless of whether you’re at home on your laptop or out and about on your phone looking for something to do, the responsive website design makes it easy to find what you’re looking for, and how to get there.
It is also possible on the site to:
- submit a gig for inclusion on the site
- add your jazz venue to the list of venues in the area
- sign up to the mailing list
- read reviews and news about the local secene
