From Make Music New York 2017
June 21st, 2017 is less than a month away! Thanks to the hundreds of venues and thousands of musicians that have already become a part of Make Music New York 2017.
At this time, we can longer accept requests from musicians in need of amplification or electricity. But if you are an acoustic performer, or a venue looking for an acoustic concert, you might still be able to the music holiday. Please email your interest to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com) and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
