Our Vision Statement

At Springfield Area Music Industry (SAMI), our ambition is to put Springfield on the map for its music scene. To that end, we want to identify avenues and opportunities for growth and exploit those; we want to identify systemic failures and explore means of correcting them, and establish a pool of individuals willing to work to make that happen. SAMI is not only for musicians, but sound engineers, techs, and even venues and club owners; everyone who wants to help us bolster the Springfield music scene is welcome. Our purpose is to come together as a community, support our local music industry, and put as MUCH music out there as possible.

I have some of these printed in 11x17s and 8x11s, if you're a venue and you'd like to hang some in your bathrooms, I will bring them too you. But either way, make sure you scrubba dubba and keep our scene alive!

Current fund balance as of 06/22: $1,436 with a total of $770 distributed to the community to date.

If you are involved in the music industry in any way(meaning at some point you got paid some amount to participate in music related activities,) and need access to this fund, please let us know. At this point, it's understood that covid has affected the industry in many ways, including ways that aren't easy to prove as they are tangential. So no proof necessary at this point. This fund is here to support our industry as we regroup and figure out how to move forward. Please use it as needed, and consider contributing if possible. Thanks, love ya! Go team! Solidarity!
