M.A.G will be approaching the local bars and music venues as well as other musical organisations to establish a rapport with them and work together for the benefit of musicians.

CHAIRPERSON: STEVEN BELILO

SECRETARY: JAMES CULATTO
ASSITANT SECRETARY: NICHOLAS GONZALEZ
TREASURER: MARTIN WINTERSTEIN-SMITH

A spokesman for the association said: “As the musicians union of Gibraltar we would like to invite ALL the music organisations to work with us in order to grow Gibraltar’s music scene at every level, this will help encourage musicians from all walks of life to feel confident to play at any musical event or venue, whilst at the same time establishing a fair rate of pay at any event or venue they perform in. We would also like to encourage all the venues that are currently providing or considering in providing live music / DJ’s to contact us if they would like to find performers”.
