On May Day, at 8pm we’re fighting for a pension and fair wages for jazz musicians in NYC’s most famous clubs. Older jazz musicians are living in poverty while jazz club owners are getting rich… yet they refuse to contribute to pensions that would let musicians retire with dignity.
Meet under the arch in Washington Square Park. We’ll march from there to the Village Vanguard and the Blue Note — with a jazz band leading the way — and conduct demonstrations outside the clubs. Musicians — bring your instruments!
