Times are tough. Getting access to basic healthcare shouldn't be...

Listen to Don Culp discuss the TUNE IN & TUNE UP Program

TUNE IN & TUNE UP is the new health initiative of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame. The program came about because Board members, many musicians themselves, were fed up with the lack of affordable health care options for the R.I. music community. We also fully understand how confusing and daunting it is to understand what may be available to you. If you are a professional Rhode Island musician or industry professional (soundman, engineer, roadie, tech crew etc.) OR the spouse of a musician or industry professional, sign up to become a member of the TUNE IN & TUNE UP program.

In the coming months, TUNE IN & TUNE UP will be offering seminars and workshops, soliciting retail outlets that will offer discounts to our members, and creating a web page (linked off of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame website) which will try to help you navigate and more easily understand Rhode Islandís health care & wellness options.

Your FREE Tune In & Tune Up membership card entitles you to:

  • Discounts or money off health-related products or services from participating retail outlets;

  • Free admission to a bi-monthly informational series of health issues concerning musicians;

  • A dedicated website dealing with health and wellness issues from a musicianís perspective

PLUS, if you join Dr. Zaheer A. Shahís Access Basic Care (ABC) Initiative, the $15 charge for each sick visit will be waived when you present your TI & TU membership card!

Make no mistake... trying to understand health care options is frustrating and confusing... for all of us as well... and it will only become moreso as the Affordable Care Act rolls out. BUT... doing nothing to take care of yourself CANNOT be an option. The TUNE IN & TUNE UP initiative will indeed be an ongoing work-in-progress and it will take some time to be fully up-and-running as we envision it... but know that we are very serious about taking care of our own... the R.I. music community. NOW ITíS UP TO YOU! Attend TUNE IN & TUNE UP events, shop at participating stores, and educate yourself! Weíll do our best to help!
