The Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund’s subsidy of this date allows us to pay a “fair wage” of $150 per musician today, one third more than our regular guarantee on a Saturday night! The Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund is a project of Jazz in the Neighborhood, established with the aim of raising gigging musicians’ wage standards so they can afford to stay in this very expensive city and region. Your cover charge tonight and your tax-deductible contributions to the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project make it possible for us to keep up our end of the bargain!
