NO SIR, It's not easy single-handedly running what has often been referred to as: "the best free vintage music website on the internet".
And it may very well be, but this wonderful resource still costs thousands of dollars per year in operating expenses alone.
All the while long unpaid hours are spent daily updating, expanding and developing our future content.

Jazz permeated all facets of popular music during the 1920's. Although dance bands differed from jazz assemblies for their lack of spontaneous improvisation they played an important role in the development and mainstream acceptance of the genre. These large orchestras also provided steady employment which kept many musicians from starving during lean times.
