Save our Stages

Music. It brings us all together. 

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) introduced the bipartisan Save Our Stages Act. We need you to contact your elected representatives through asking them to support this bill.

The Save Our Stages Act provides Small Business Administration grants for independent venues, promoters, and festivals affected by COVID-19 stay-at-home orders. These grants offer at least six months of financial support to keep us afloat, pay employees, and preserve a critical economic sector and our ecosystem for communities across America.

To get the Save Our Stages Act and RESTART Act across the finish line, we absolutely need your help. Every one of your letters and calls to your local Senators and Representatives is what will keep us alive and get these acts passed. Without your help many will surely perish and close their doors forever.

“Our members told us months ago that if the shutdown lasted six months or longer and there wasn’t federal relief to hold them over, 90% of them would fold permanently,” said Dayna Frank, president of NIVA and CEO First Avenue Productions. “With no revenue and immense overhead, four months in, it’s already happening. The warning light is flashing red and our only hope is for legislation like Save Our Stages Act or RESTART Act to be passed before Congress goes on August recess. Otherwise, most businesses in this industry will collapse.”

Through, more than 1 million emails have been sent letting all 538 members of Congress know that constituents want to keep independent venues, promoters, and festivals alive.

Hey Rick and Joel – I always make fun of my mom for writing checks when we go out. It always takes her forever to go through the grocery store line. She just ordered even more checks, so I don’t know if she’ll ever catch up with the digital age. Can you call her with…
