Black Fret Members pay $1,500 in annual dues. After taxes that works out to about $100/month, potentially even less if your company offers a corporate match. In return, Members get to participate in the Black Fret Member Experience and gain access for you and a guest to around 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 Fret Ball. 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.
