Advocacy

mission-3-soaWe’re working with musicians to teach vital music business skills and shift away from the gig-to-gig cycle, but we want the gigs to pay more too! The Empower Musicians, Seal of Approval advocacy initiative celebrates the venues that treat and pay musicians like professionals.

Evaluated on a 30-point metric, developed from constituent focus groups, these New Orleans venues have embraced music business best practices and excel in Compensation of Musicians, Show Marketing, Venue Sound Quality, and Social Responsibility:

We add the seal to venues perpetually throughout the year.
