contracts must be on file
with the Lincoln Musicians
Association prior to perfor
mances. Contracts range from
concerts by "name" groups
to wedding dances by local
bands. Heckman provides

them improve their musical
ability. Members are also
kept aware of laws and
changes in laws which may
affect them.

commitment to perform
ing. A large number of
musicians find work in
Omaha in the symphonies,
at Ak-Sar-Ben, at the
Orpheum Theater and in
other clubs and lounges as
back-up musicians.
Heckman said he feels
there are advantages to
being a union member. If
one holds a union member
ship, he or she is placed on
the list for any local or nat
ional referrals that come in.
Members can work in states
such as Minnesota and
Illinois, which are closed
union shops and can hire
only union members. Union
membership is about $36 a
year.
