Booking a Band?
Our history began in 1896 when musicians gathered in Indianapolis and organized the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) for “any musician who receives pay for his musical services.” Representing 3,000 members, AFM was granted a charter by the American Federation of Labor (AFL). Now we are 80,000 musicians strong.
Get Paid When You Get Played
Today’s radio market isn’t working for musicians, but we can change that by joining together and demanding Congress pass the Fair Play Fair Pay Act. This bill would level the playing field by requiring all radio services pay fair market value for the music they use.
