On top of that we're proud to present a list of 31 bands that are still in the running to play the finals of B-Jazz 2017.
How does it work?
Fairly simple: go to the page with all the videos, have a look at the videos that seem interesting to you and vote for them.
An overview of the 31 bands you can vote for:
