We are disappointed to announce that the Oasis Contemporary Jazz Awards shows have been cancelled by the promoter. The CJazz JAZZ FOR CANCER show on the aircraft carrier Midway will still be held as it was a stand-alone event.

Please contact the Oasis Awards directly for ticket refunds. Neither, Humphrey’s or the artists will be able to assist you in this regard.

The Promoter comments:

I want to thank the artists and fans who have sent words of encouragement. They know we tried very hard to do what had never been done before. The public just didn’t respond. Barely 200 tickets were sold. We thought when we went to Ticketmaster that sales would take off. Unfortunately, Ticketmaster only sold 37 additional tickets.

Nick Colionne comments:

Well the Oasis awards are cancelled. But you know what I say to all my friends who were nominated. You are all winners and I am sorry that the fans who voted did not get a chance to see you honored. But, as I said you are all winners in my book because you are some of the best people I have had a chance to meet and jam with.
