The News Media has spent considerable time in the last 2 years talking about Coronavirus, mask wearing, social distancing, states shutting down business, the lockdowns of communities, and the complete stoppage of social gatherings, concerts, festivals, venues, and live music.
But the time has come to open up our businesses and venues. To safely gather - and by all means let our musicians play music live again, with audiences safely in attendance!
We ask all Media, TV, Radio, Magazines, News, or Content Creators - whether it's online or via traditional Media delivery platforms, including social media, podcasters, show hosts, social influencers, celebrities, and content creators - to throw some love our way and help us get the word out about this project - that #LiveMusicIsEssential.
We followed President Biden's request to "mask up" for 100 days (from Jan. 20th to Apr. 29th, 2021). But now it's time to put the Covid pandemic behind us, and #UnmaskTheMusic
The time has come for President Biden and all State governors to change the status of musicians and venues to "essential" via executive order, if they haven't done so yet, and stop the continued shutdowns of the live music industry, and the theft of Bands & Artists primary income source.
