Help Nashville Musicians

[Note: Nashville musicians download an assistance application here.]

Musicians in Nashville are facing millions of dollars in losses due to the recent flood that swept through the city with little warning. Guitars, pianos, recording equipment, and other instruments have been completely submerged underwater and destroyed.  Some musicians have lost everything.  Soundcheck Nashville, a 160,000 square foot music equipment storage facility, estimates that it has incurred tens of millions of dollars in losses, much of it in instruments owned by working musicians.  The flood has not only destroyed instruments, it has left many musicians out of work for the foreseeable future.

The mayor of Nashville estimates losses of more than $1 billion—a huge amount for a city of that size. Making matters worse is the fact that few in Nashville have flood insurance.

When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005, the Federation created the Musicians Disaster Relief Fund as a way to distribute funds from members and locals to musicians needing help. We will now use this fund to aid our brothers and sisters in Nashville.

The AFM hopes that you will use your generosity to make a contribution to the fund to help Nashville musicians get back on their feet. One hundred percent of your contributions go directly to the musicians.
