Subscribe to JazzScene here or simply send a blank email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to be eligible to enter our next draw!

We respect your privacy. Unlike many other draws that are scams for building marketing lists, we only collect information required to reach a draw winner: your name and contact info. Only the winner's name is shared with the concert promoter, so they know who to admit to the concert.

Tickets for the draws are generously provided by the artists or concert presenters, as noted in each draw. Please support the artists, presenters, and venues that have supported OttawaJazzScene.ca, by buying their music and attending their ticketed concerts.

Each draw winner is selected randomly by random.org from all eligible entries received by  the specified entry deadline.

Artists and concert promoters: If you would like to increase the visibility of your upcoming event and support OttawaJazzScene.ca's work by donating tickets for a draw please contact the publisher, Brett Delmage. We recommend that you contact us no later than two full weeks before your event, but we may still be able to run a draw on much shorter notice.
