    Our local jazz radio station 89.1 KMHD is a gem…best station on the dial in Portland as far as I am concerned. Would love to get some live jazz in my life. Love Jimmy Mak’s but it’s been about 15 years since my last visit. Looooooooooong overdue!

    I desire to hear this concert because I am working on my piano skills. Appreciation for music has always been a main part of my life. The saying goes, if you want to grow, surround yourself with people who will cause you to excel. I am really needing this opportunity right now.

    Avoiding the party scene at the River and hanging at Mak’s sounds like the perfect Cinco de Mayo festivities.

    The jazz trio looks amazing! I’ve worked hard to become nearly fluent in Spanish over the last two years. I started a tradition 3 years ago to always immerse myself in culture for Cinco de Mayo and I think this event is the perfect way to continue that. The last two years I volunteered at a cinco de mayo parade in Klamath falls, Or. This year I’d like to sit back and soak up the fun!

  31. Raisa May 5, 2014 at 12:56 pm #

    I’ve never been to any live jazz in my life. I would really love to go! Please pick me!
