Blue Fiasco biography
We’re a jazz quartet based in northeast/north central Ohio. About half of our songs are our own arrangements of jazz standards. About half are our own jazz arrangements of 60s-70s-80s-90s classic rock hits. It’s a fun combination of music for the audience, especially when they recognize a song from The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, or Billy Joel.
This variety keeps audiences engaged if they’re fans of jazz, or grew up listening to classic rock.

Background and accomplishments
We started playing in 2019 but each of us has over 50 years of professional experience playing gigs, playing for stage productions, teaching music, recording and arranging. We play in other music groups including big bands.
Our first show (Comida in Hudson, Ohio, Feb. 1, 2020) was completely sold out. The venue holds about 120 people and by showtime Comida had to start reserving places at the bar. The pandemic stopped us from playing for the next year and a half. About 300 heard us at our second show (on the Hudson Green, Sept. 5, 2021).
We’re not only good musicians, we’re good marketers.
We believe in being a good marketing partner for a venue. We use social media (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube), websites like the one you’re on plus AllAboutJazz.com, JazzNearYou.com, SummitLive265.com, Cleveland Scene, EventBrite and other live event sites.
