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.

All memberships are for a twelve-month period.

Member payment options (monthly or annual payment plans) will be available on the page that appears upon submission of the below form. Please note that in order to nominate or vote for a band you must have paid your one-time new member fee and no less than four full months dues (a total of $600). This is necessary to prevent gaming of the Artist Selection Process.

Thank You For Being a Patron of Local Music!

Members get to select a t-shirt for you and a +1. Please note we use very high quality t-shirt stock for our t-shirts. As such the sizing for women is a bit unconventional and vulnerable to shrinking. We have found that sizing up a size or two results in a long-lasting, enjoyable t-shirt experience. We will gladly exchange any shirt that does not fit.
