About Projazz DM-Productions


Projazz was founded on 1 January 1989, having as main activity the production of concerts and jazz festivals, promotion of artists, management and assistance for albums and shows; agency the biggest names in North American and European areas of Jazz.
On 25 October 2001 the Company acquired the designation of DM-Productions.
Duarte Mendonça's founding partner, began as a producer of concerts and jazz festivals in 1974, in the then "Cascais Jazz" with Luis Vilas-Boas.
In 1982 he designed and implemented the festival "Jazz on a Summer Day" which since 1990 has acquired the designation of "Estoril Jazz / Jazz on a Summer Day."
Estoril Jazz has as main objective the promotion of Jazz music through live performances with musicians and groups in the forefront of the international scene, focusing of course on the Americans, paying attention not only to new trends while maintaining the artistic quality, but also diversify as far as possible the characteristics of the groups - voice / trios / quintets, big bands, Blues, New Orleans, etc..
The Projazz / DM Productions also has as one of its objectives to present to the Portuguese public as many of the great names of jazz who have never acted in our country, a situation that after 30 years of uninterrupted activity in this area will be increasingly difficultly.
In the past (1990-1991) Projazz / DM Productions implemented pedagogical actions in carrying out the "International Courses Projazz", which however had to be abandoned for lack of financial support of the local authorities responsible for tourism and culture.
