NYC budget season is well underway and WE NEED YOUR HELP! Join Local 802 and musicians across NYC by asking for a restoration of $10 million in expense funding for culture and an additional $30 million to help sustain and increase cultural opportunities for all New Yorkers! Here are two simple things you can do to help the arts:

1. Call your local council member! For a phone script and to learn who your council member is, visit our online toolkit here.

2. Do you have plans at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, May 19? Join us as we RALLY on the steps of City Hall and demand increased funding in New York City's budget. RSVP by e-mailing Christopher Carroll here.

This spring, Local 802 is the place to be to learn, have fun, and share the best music in town. On May 16 at 5 p.m., come listen to jazz bassist Jay Leonhart (pictured far right). On May 23 at 3 p.m., join Dominic Derasse (top right) in a tribute to the great Carmine Caruso. Then, save June 29 at 5 p.m. for Local 802's tenth Jazz Mentors program, featuring renowned bassist Christian McBride (far left) and career architect Andre Guess (top left) plus more special guests. (For more information on Jazz Mentors or to RSVP, click here.) All events take place at Local 802. We'll save a seat for you!
