We want to take a moment to thank our patrons for supporting us through COVID-19 by purchasing tickets and gift cards to future events. As you know, independent music venues and promoters were the first to shut down and expect to be the last to reopen. Jade Presents has joined the National Independent Venue Association to keep music live in North Dakota.
Jade Presents works closely with Tickets300 and Nocturnal Resources to produce live events. From full-time staffers to gig workers to local nonprofits, this industry employs hundreds of people in the area and also provides content for our venue partners: Fargo Theatre, Sanctuary Events Center, Fargo Brewing Company and Bluestem Center for the Arts Amphitheater.
The impact of COVID-19 presents a challenge we can’t face on our own and we need your help to represent our industry in this battle. This is an existential crisis for the live entertainment world.
On April 22, the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) sent a letter to Washington, asking for critical support needed to weather this storm. Now we need you to do the same. Hundreds of venues and promoters across the country are asking our fans and friends to reach out to your congressional representatives. Send an email, make a call, use your voice to tell them you want to see independent live music survive in your community. This can be done in a few short seconds if you go to https://www.nivassoc.org/take-action. It’s as easy as copying and pasting a message and sending it to our North Dakota representatives explaining what live music means to you.
Thank you for your support,
The Jade Presents team
