Dear Mr. Murren (MGM) and Mr. McCabe (Hakkasan),
Please forward this message to your Executive Office.
As of late, many talented musicians in Las Vegas cannot make a living because of how much you are paying Calvin Harris – and DJs like him – to play EDM tunes at your venues. He’s taking in six figures per night – and you’re making millions – at the expense of the local musicians who are now struggling to make $2,000 per gig.
A video excerpt from the Jan. 31st meeting of the Las Vegas Investment Club expresses our concern:
The result is the decay of Las Vegas’ vibrant music scene, one of the main reasons people flock to Vegas every day of the year.
We request a response on this issue from your office. We will distribute it to our members.
