Black Fret members pay $1,500 in annual dues. After taxes that works out to about $100/month. And potentially even less should your company offer a corporate match. In return Members get to participate in the Black Fret Member Experience and gain access for you and a guest to over 30 intimate performances a year. Members participate in a year-long process to share, nominate and lobby for the bands you love, and vote to determine the allocation of grant dollars to those artists. Then in December we gather to celebrate the awarding of those grants at our annual Black Ball gala. We do all this in the company of a limited, exclusive, dynamic and friendly group of fellow Members with the same appreciation for our wonderful city and our internationally recognized musicians.
