Play Tulsa Music funding is now available for Tulsa County venues to be used exclusively for offsetting 50% of a musician/band performance fee incurred between April 1 and December 31, 2022. The Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture (Tulsa FMAC) created the Tulsa County Music Recovery Program (Play Tulsa Music) with the goal to create an economic boost to the music ecosystem throughout Tulsa County, as well as help local musicians and the live music sector get back to performing. Play Tulsa Music is focused on providing job opportunities for musicians and support positions associated with live music performances.
Play Tulsa Music was originally created and launched in September 2020 as a recovery effort supported with Tulsa County CARES Act funding. $190,000 was distributed to 26 venues in Tulsa County, helping to support 700+ local, live performances. The funding went directly to performing musicians, as well as tech positions supporting live music performances.
