Following the announcement, Cairo Jazz Club was swamped with reservation requests and inquiries about ticket pricing. Many fans complained that they received no response from the Cairo Jazz Club team, while the team confirmed that they’re trying their best to attend to all the messages they’ve been receiving.

“The event tickets are based on a first-come first-serve basis, meaning that the first people who reach out to us are the first ones that get a response and so on,” was a common response by the organizing team to frustrated fans.

The band currently consists of singer and electronic guitarist Greg Gonzalez, bassist Randall Miller, and drummer Jacob Tomsky. They are known for their songs Apocalypse, I’m a Firefighter, Heavenly, among others.

Both early bird tickets and tier 1 tickets are sold out. Tier 2 is currently available with limited seats. To reserve a spot, contact Cairo Jazz Club’s Facebook page.
