Chefjimi Patricola Sat On The Couch

With one small post on Facebook, Chefjimi began a charge that changed the way musicians were to be treated at the merchandise tent during the 2012 Chicago Blues Festival.

The word began to spread, emails were sent to Chicago Jazz Magazine (the organization running the tent), and eventually cooler heads prevailed and the commission structure was rolled back to 25% from the original 45%.

The power of social media shown once again.

Chefjimi and I discussed the events of last week.  But this classically trained chef does more that stir the pot.  He is a loyal friend to the musicians of the blues, offering them an outlet and showing his support in all he does with his wonderful music venture
