Imagine being a regular on the guest list for private performances all over the New York area, in small venues with some of your favorite artists!  Being a Marquee Member means receiving email invitations every month for you and a guest to these exclusive WFUV live shows.

Some recent Marquee shows have included: Amos Lee, Amy Helm, Steve Earle, Richard Thompson, Citizen Cope, Jade Bird, Bailen, Josh Ritter, Bedouine, SOAK, Low Cut Connie, Andrew Bird, and Bob Mould.  Venues have included Rockwood Music Hall, McKittrick Hotel, Electric Lady Studios, Littlefield in Brooklyn, Sheen Center, City Winery, and more.  WFUV features these concerts on the air, but you get to see and hear them first — live and up-close — as a Marquee Member. [This YouTube playlist will give you a good idea!]

You also enjoy all the other great benefits of WFUV Membership, including special offers and discounts with your MemberCard, access to free tickets through the WFUV Member Line, and a copy of the most recent FUV Live CD, our exclusive collection of live performances. [more]

Marquee members provide the generous support essential for keeping the music playing on this station all year round. As a Marquee member, you embrace a leadership role with this public radio station that also comes with exclusive opportunities to experience WFUV in unique and exciting ways.
