Send a Note to the Blue Note, Demanding Justice!
Welcome to the Justice for Jazz Artists “Week of Action” letter-writing/social media campaign! We ask you—and all of our nearly 50,000 Facebook fans—to post on the Blue Note’s Facebook page (Blue Note Jazz Club, NY), 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!
In 2007, jazz clubs and the musicians union joined together to fight to get jazz clubs a waiver of the NY State sales tax on admissions, with the understanding that the clubs would make modest contributions on behalf of musicians to a pension fund. So far, not one jazz club has done so. Justice for Jazz Artists and the musicians’ union Local 802 want to work with the clubs to ensure that jazz artists receive fair treatment. We need your help to convince the jazz clubs that this is an important issue that affects hundreds of musicians annually.
