25-Plus Year Industry Veteran, Named Artistic Director and General Manager of Improved and Expanded Club at DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston – Cambridge Hotel
BOSTON, Mass. - Scullers Jazz Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Jan Mullen as general manager and artistic director of the improved and expanded, world-class entertainment venue located in the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Boston - Cambridge. A staple in the jazz world for over 25 years, Scullers retains the same intimate feeling the club is known for, while opening up the club to a bigger and broader range of national and international musical talent that has long been out of reach due to capacity.
"After 25 years we've become one of the great jazz clubs in America," said Jayne Barrett, General Manager for DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston - Cambridge. "With this new expansion, and new leadership, we look forward to the next chapter in the club's history in providing authentic live jazz experiences."
A 25-year veteran of the music industry, Mullen brings an in-depth knowledge of today's vital jazz community, serving as club director of The Side Door Jazz Club in Old Lyme, Connecticut for its first four years, establishing the club as one of the top rated and respected jazz venues in the country. Her decades of music industry experience includes artist management of many notable Top 10 performers of the 90's and 2000's, as well as production of major tours and festivals worldwide.
"Jan's familiarity and experience within the music industry will bring an awakening and welcomed change to Scullers," Barrett continued. "For the last two decades, we have worked with superstar impresario Fred Taylor as our outside booking agent who did an amazing job under his tenure. With Jan's appointment serving as both artistic director and booking agent as the club's general manager, we will be able to steer the club in a fresh new direction."
Mullen also has served as product manager for Columbia Records/Sony Music in New York City, as artist promotion and marketing at both Island Records/Def Jam Records and Chrysalis Records, and as artist relations consultant for the Zoom Corporation and NAAM convention. Throughout the course of her accomplished career, Mullen has consistently been a leader in talent management, artist relations, creative marketing and promotion strategies and guest relations. Her combined experience in entertainment management and intense passion for jazz will only enrich Scullers Jazz Club's reputation as the top entertainment venue for live music in Boston.
