Dear Club Owner,
I urge you to help stop the exploitation of jazz musicians. Respecting jazz artists who play your club means offering a fair pay scale, pension contributions, protection of recording rights and a grievance process to address abuses. In these ways, venerable jazz clubs can show real esteem for the men and women who sustain this great American art form!
Let them know how important it is to you that jazz musicians are treated fairly:
