Bridging the Economic Gap
for New Orleans Musicians
The Musician's Council on Fair Wages is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit created to reinforce the unification process for New Orleans musicians and help them align themselves personally and professionally. Our goal is to help systematically bridge the economic gap between how much musicians are compensated for performances currently versus the amount club owners/event planners (public & private) are willing to pay for their services.
