Black Fret

Just as other arts have been supported for generations, Black Fret believes popular music deserves the support of its community. Since 2013, Black Fret has provided over a million dollars to exceptional local musicians to enable the creation and performance of new music. Employing an innovative and scalable chapter-based membership model in which a limited group of members enjoy premium musical experiences, Black Fret has proven to be a profitable organization with plans for national expansion.
Employing a membership-based patronage model, Black Fret provides exceptional local musicians the resources to create and perform new music.
