Update on Thursday’s Musician/Independent Worker Discussion

10/17/2012

We’ve confirmed some folks to kick off the night, and then we’ll open up the conversation to everyone. Hope to see you there! [Here’s the original announcement.]

Melvin Gibbs, bass guitarist and composer
Luis Molina, taxi driver and DJ
Ben Laude, classical pianist
Tanya Kalmanovitch, violist and professor
Daphne Carr, journalist and musician
Teresa Fellion, dancer and artistic director
Alex Asher, trombonist
Jim Pugliese, drummer/percussionist

Afterwards, at 9pm we’ll move from discussion into ACTION — join the Justice for Jazz Artists campaign in Washington Square Park and march to the Blue Note for pension, fair pay scales, and protections of recordings for all musicians who play at the club. Meet under the arch — there will be a live band.
