Join us at 9pm TONIGHT (10/18), as we are stand up for free speech and let the Blue Note Jazz Club owners know they need to do right by the skilled musicians who fill their venues. That means fair pay scales, promised pension contributions, and protections on recordings!
Meet at Washington Square Park (near the fountain, center of park) at 9:00 PM, and march with us to the Blue Note! (131 West. 3rd Street).
The march tonight kicks off our “Week of Action” letter writing campaign. We ask you—along with our nearly 50,000 Facebook fans—to post the campaign’s demands on the Blue Note’s Facebook page (Blue Note Jazz Club, NY), and send an email or write a letter to Danny and Steve Bensusan, owners of the Blue Note Jazz Club, telling them that artists playing their clubs deserve fair treatment.
1. Send an email to the Bensusans directly from this link: Letter to Blue Note
2. Send a personal email to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Write a letter to: Danny and Steve Bensusan, The Blue Note, 131 W. 3rd Street, New York, NY 10012
Dear Danny and Steve Bensusan,
I urge you to respect the artistry of the jazz musicians who play at your club and meet with them and their union to discuss implementing a fair pay scale, making good on promised pension contributions and protecting recording rights. In these ways, the Blue Note can show its esteem for the men and women whose talent and dedication sustains your clubs as well as this great American art form.
