IMC Website Launch
Application Deadlines
Live List

Hi there 

Busy times ahead. We have Down with Jazz right around the corner (check out the
new video here) and our website launch on the 15th of June. We'd love to see you all there – we'll be having this event instead of our usual musician meet – there'll be some free drinks and nibbles too! More info on this below.

Yours in music making, 

Rob, Kenneth and Aoife

We're happy to announce the new IMC website is now live. ( Featuring a database of Irish jazz musicians, a scene section full of useful info and tips, as well as all of IMC's upcoming events, this is a significant milestone for IMC, and a huge resource for irish musicians. 

Can't find your event, don't worry! We are switching new parts of the site on regularly and are constatly making updates. Please check back soon.

To celebrate, we'll be having a Launch Event on Wednesday 15th June at 18:00 upstairs in the Grand Social. (There'll be complementary drinks and nibbles!) We'll see you there.
There is a new hashtag that should be on your social media channels; #jazzIRL will be a quick and easy way for audiences, jazz musicians, promoters and festivals to search and link jazz events in Ireland. It's tongue in cheek, IRL being short for Ireland but also short for In Real Life. Use it to tag your events, photos and posts on social media, as well as searching for the latest news and events in the Irish jazz scene.
