It is hard to believe that the JazzBuffalo Poll will be entering its fifth year! The annual poll provides an opportunity for readers of JazzBuffalo and fans of jazz music to participate in recognizing the talented jazz artists, groups, and performances in Greater Buffalo.
This year has been a year of a tremendous jazz resurgence unmatched in recent decades. The resurgence is being fueled by a wider variety of jazz to experience. Such a wealth of jazz artists and available performances in 2018 truly enriched our community. Now we take time to once again recognize and say thank you to those who have given us hours of enjoyable jazz.
The 5th Annual JazzBuffalo Poll will consist of four milestones:
- The JazzBuffalo Poll Nominations collects nominees from readers and fans in 30 plus categories
- The JazzBUffalo Poll is published in early January 2019, and votes are collected in 30 plus categories
- The 5th Annual JazzBuffalo Poll winners are announced at the Hotel Henry Jazz Concert Series on Wednesday, February 6
- The 5th Annual JazzBuffalo Poll results and winners are published on JazzBuffalo
In this first phase, here is your chance to name up to five nominations for each category. If you do not have five, that is okay, just name whom you have in mind and move on to the next category. If you cannot name anyone for a certain category, that is okay also. You can skip and move on to the next category. Please honor the request to take this survey only once. Once nominations are collected, the official 5th Annual JazzBuffalo Poll will be announced naming the nominations in each category available for voting.
Winners will be announced on February 6, 2019, at the 5th Annual JazzBuffalo Poll Awards at the Hotel Henry Jazz Concert Series. On that evening, our special guest for the Hotel Henry Jazz Concert Series will be the Wendell Rivera Latin Jazz Band.
