This week, E&A partnered with the Boston Managers Group to present a National Independent Talent Organization (NITO) panel featuring some of the biggest names in the live music world. Watch or listen to the panel at the top of this page and scroll down to learn more about NITO's mission to support the live music industry during the pandemic.


We are working with the National Independent Talent Organization (NITO) to #SaveLiveMusic and hope you can join the fight!

Congress is now in recess having failed to address the desperate needs of the live music community. NITO has received first hand feedback from Capitol Hill that our elected officials heard the messages from our community and understand our predicament. But until there is a vote, we need to continue outreach. We need to have our supporters, fans, friends and families send messages to DC through the NITO Take Action page. Together we will all continue to put pressure on Congressional leadership as well as the White House officials who are negotiating the legislation that we hope will be addressed in the next COVID relief bill when the August recess is over. This is the only way we will be able to get back to doing what we do best, sharing the gift of music with the masses.

STEP 1:  Please message your Congress member using your social media platforms.

The letter will ask your legislators to support the RESTART Act and Save Our Stages Act. Follow the link below to email your local representatives and US Senators and #SaveLiveMusic.  

STEP 3: Please take the time to forward THIS EMAIL to your festival & concert friends, family and anyone else willing to help SAVE LIVE MUSIC.

We want to be able to continue our tradition of bringing live music to the Boston area and thank you for your support of these very important efforts to #SaveLiveMusic.
