Musicians for Musicians (MFM) , a non-profit organization advocating sustainable professional career paths for musicians, and Eclectix , a new music presentation organization, will offer an evening of jazz to bring together musicians, music industry professionals and music lovers.
This music and networking event will take place on Wednesday, November 6 from 7:00 – 8;45 PM at the Zinc Bar, 82 West 3rd Street in Manhattan.
Featuring jazz master and MFM advisory board member David Liebman performing solo, as well as Eclectix Ensemble members Roger Blanc, Steve Sandberg, Michael Laderman, Nate Haselby and Ed Fast performing their own original music.
There will be a $10 cover charge and 2 drink minimum at the tables; there is no cover at the bar. FREE FOR MFM MEMBERS!
Music professionals are invited to attend as part of MFM’s effort to unify musicians of all disciplines, styles, traditions and localities. The music-loving public is invited to deepen their understanding of music’s true value to society, and to support of the social role of those musicians who earn a living from their art.
“We believe strongly that the time has come for the entire community of professional musicians to get together and advocate for themselves and their colleagues,” said MFM president Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi. “Without unity among musicians there’s no way to communicate that music is not, cannot and should not be free. If we are to have music in our lives, we must change this expectation that has developed in the digital age.”
