In partnership with the Hawaiian Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism and Outrigger Waikiki Reef on the Beach hotel, the Pacific Northwest Chapter will present MusicTech Hawaii, an event focusing on how Hawaiian musicians can better market their music on the Web and find a larger audience for their music.

A panel will take place featuring Ben London, PNW Chapter Executive Director; Steve Manning, Sub Pop Records; William G. Meyer III, attorney; and Mark Montgomery, Echo Music. Following the discussion, guests will be invited to join the panelists, Academy staff, and members of the Hawaiian music community at a MusiCares-hosted reception at the Ka Pila Grill, located in the Outrigger Waikiki Reef.

Admission is free for Recording Academy members. Tickets are $50 for general public and the price may be put towards Academy membership. To RSVP or purchase tickets, please contact the PNW Chapter office at 206.834.1000. Not a member? Join now.

Due to space limitations, we will require a credit card number for all reservations. Preference will be given to PNW Chapter members. A 48-hour cancellation policy will be enforced in order to accommodate as many members as possible. All no-shows will be charged full admission.

On Sept. 10 MusiCares, in conjunction with the Faith Family Medical Center, will be providing a free Musicians Health Clinic to uninsured or under-insured music professionals in need. The clinic will take place at the Faith Family Medical Clinic, 326 21st Ave. North in Nashville from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Services will include a comprehensive physical exam, blood and laboratory tests and/or an examination related to a specific issue you may be having. These services will be provided free of charge to eligible applicants. Those wishing to take advantage of this service must be able to document their work in the music industry for at least five years or have credited contribution to six commercially released recordings or videos (singles).

Faith Family Medical Clinic is a Nashville nonprofit providing primary healthcare for working individuals and their families who do not have access to health insurance. People without adequate health insurance often tend to skip primary care. As a result, they often find themselves in the emergency room with medical conditions that are more serious and more expensive then they might have been. MusiCares and the Faith Family Medical Center want to encourage music professionals to take care of themselves and their health.

To schedule an appointment, please call MusiCares at 615.327.0050 or e-mail danielle.bowker@grammy.com.
