I originally joined Local 802 after I was asked to join Jon Batiste and Stay Human, the house band at “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert. It’s been an incredibly fun gig and so wonderful to learn all the benefits of being part of Local 802 and how the union looks out for us musicians. As a musician who is very busy touring in addition to doing TV work, I’m comforted to know there is a system in place to check all the details.
