Rice & Roses #805 : Inside the Musicians Union

The job of being a musician is unique in that the musician might perform in several locations over the course of a month, making it difficult for the musicians to keep track of when, where, and for whom they worked. The Musicians Association of Hawaiʻi assists local talent with creating contracts, medical insurance, and assisting musicians if a venue has failed to pay for services rendered. Rice & Roses gives an in-depth look at what this unique union does for the musicians of Hawaiʻi. Recorded on July 24, 1979.
