Each Tuesday, we send an "Info Please" email to our Info Providers (musicians, restaurant owners, etc.), asking for updates. Each email is customized to show only the recipient's current listings, for easy reviewing. We then update our listings based on email responses.
Each Thursday, we send an email blast to our Subscribers, containing all of the listings currently on the website.
We also update the website every day as we get new info, so you can always go to the website for last-minute info.
Behind the scenes, there is a database and numerous programming features that help us quickly find, add, edit, highlight, repeat, delete, replace, etc. all of the info.
Joe Hazi loved going to live music events at bars and restaurants on St. Croix. He wanted people to know where to find that music, so in 2008, he started a weekly email to spread the news. The first musician to be listed by Joe was Kurt Schindler, soon followed by Michael Justis and Steve Katz, and the first two people to receive his weekly email were Valerie Peiser and Michael Justis. Whenever Joe met people who shared the love for live music, he asked for their email address and added them to the list.
In 2009, Bob Sifniades suggested that Joe convert the list to a website so anybody could find the info. In April 2010, Bob and his wife Jamila Hammad designed and programmed the website, and on July 1, 2010, StCroixCalendar.com was launched with Joe as the editor. The website continued the weekly email feature, and at the time there were about 400 Subscribers. In July 2013, Joe passed away, and Bob took over as the editor, at Joe’s prior request, and with the assistance of Joe's wife Holly Hazi. In 2014, Jamila began helping Bob to edit the calendar, and thus was born the moniker JamBo (Jamila and Bob).
In the fall of 2017, Bob and Jamila developed a case of wanderlust and, keeping St. Croix as home base, set off exploring other parts of the world. They knew they wanted to find someone who loves promoting St. Croix as much as they do to manage the calendar. When they approached Amy Land-de Wilde about taking over, she was thrilled with the idea of carrying on the legacy of sharing “where the fun is” on St. Croix! Her Coldwell Banker St. Croix Realty team members, Corinne and Renee, are now co-editors of the calendar.
Originally from Indiana, Renee and her husband, Chris, two cats and two dogs moved to St. Croix in the summer of 2015. They enjoy experiencing the island food scene, especially finding fresh fish and local produce at St. Croix’s incredible restaurants and farmer’s market. Renee is passionate about green living and conservation.
Florida girl, Corinne, celebrated her nuptials with husband, Patrick, in 2015 on St. Croix surrounded by close friends and family. Their family, which includes two rescue dogs, bought their first island home in 2017. She is a nature enthusiast and loves hiking, snorkeling, and enjoying the simple and organic beauty of St. Croix.
Both Corinne and Renee are excited to be in the know of all the fun things happening on St. Croix and to provide this great resource to locals and tourists!
