Why I’m a fan of Tangent jazz

This venue has been a home away from home for me since 2014.

It was the place where I could go in my late-teens to experience the music I loved. It felt like the right environment to keep us all together.

I wish that many more people can have this experience at the Tangent! That’s why I’m a fan and have this page.
