    The Denver Musicians Association represents 850 area musicians and we’re boycotting Make Music Denver. The reason is because ALL musicians performing for Make Music Denver MUST work for free as a prerequisite of accepting the engagement.

    The Downtown Denver Partnership represents billions of dollars in member wealth under the guise of four “nonprofit” organizations, yet their CEO and staff collectively earn over $2.3 million/year. Why aren’t they working for free?

    World Music Day is a celebration of music … not a mass exploitation of musicians. There are many other musical and entertainment choices that are far more worthwhile.
