The march was tremendous! A perfect kickoff to our “Week of Action.” Now we ask you and —our nearly 50,000 FB fans—to post the “Pay, Pension, Protections” message on the Blue Note’s Facebook page (Blue Note Jazz Club, NY), and to write a direct email to owners Danny and Steve Bensusan, telling them that musicians deserve fair treatment! Here’s how:
1. Send an email to the Bensusans directly from this link: Letter to Blue Note
2. Send a personal email to email@example.com
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.
