The American Federation of Musicians was created to provide performing musicians with a variety of benefits as they continue to pursue their professional musical careers in the Vegas area. Since 1896, we’ve been negotiating contracts and compensation requirements for our members. From educational television to theatrical motion pictures, we’re dedicated to ensuring you benefit from your hard work.
Our mission is to allow artists the opportunity to continually expand their musical talents while fighting the exploitation we often face. As a community, we stand together regardless of age, race or gender to collectively convey our democratic institutional rights and beliefs to leaders among our industry.
The AFM provides various benefits for performing musicians including:
• Contracts for electronic work produced • Contracts for prepared music • Contracts for musical performances • Pensions • Health insurance • Employment opportunities • Special payment funds
Our chapter, the Musicians Union of Las Vegas, is committed to providing employment opportunities for local musicians. We offer many different resources to help you continually obtain work. The benefits of joining a union are endless. Our community works together to keep the music alive.
