Lage Lund, Mark Turner, Vicente Archer & Johnathan Blake - Live at Smalls Jazz Club, 11/3/16 Register for free to watch all of our streams all the time. To sign up --> www.smallslive.com/accounts/signup/ Subscribing supporters get access to our audio/video archive of performances dating back to 2007.
Nearly all of the shows performed at Smalls Jazz Club (video and audio) since 2007 are available on our site - www.smallslive.com. Although anyone can become a SmallsLIVE member for free and watch our live streams to gain access to the archive you must become a "Supporting Member". Supporting Members pay $10/monthly for unlimited access to the archive. Revenue from Supporting Members is distributed to the musicians directly. SmallsLIVE has endeavored to make the fairest revenue share agreement possible by meeting with musicians and union representatives. As Supporting Members watch videos the amount of time watched is recorded. Each musician tagged to a show gets credited with time as the shows are watched. For payouts each musician has a ratio based on their personal total time divided the overall archive time. This is their percentage of the payout. Revenue collected is divided 50/50 between the musicians and the club. Club revenue goes directly to the expenses of running the clubs. Musicians keep 100% ownership of the recordings and may do with them as they wish, including selling them or putting them out themselves. Musicians keep 100% of their publishing rights. Musicians have their own backend login to control their own profile as well as their own content. Musicians can decide whether they want a particular show public or not and can control the other musicians tagged to their shows. This week we are about to distribute $8000 to the musicians. For the musicians in the top 30 or so the payments already are far far in excess of anything they would see from Spotify or any current streaming company. Even though this current payout is not enormous we hope the fairness and transparency of our system can be a model for future systems. As our Supporter Membership grows so does the payouts for the musicians. Please consider becoming a Supporting Member.
