Of the 226,000 North Shore jobs, how many do you think arts and culture?

In 2014, the Massachusetts labor force was 3,570,000 (vs 3,626,800 in February 2017 ); and the North Shore accounted for 6.3%. Yesterday, the US Dept of Commerce Bureau of Economics announced the state by state breakdown of arts and culture employment –for the first time ever– based on the 2014 national data. MA arts and culture jobs were reported to be 128,350, and 3.6% total MA labor. Various reports overlap categories. Sometimes “Health and education” are packed together or “arts, entertainment, recreation and leisure”. In MA top industries such as Financial services (20%), Technology, Medicine and Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Fishing, and Tourism (125,000–note how similar in size this is to the arts and culture jobs) are discussed.

2015 report

2014 employment by major industry sector


US Dept of Commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis reports the following MA stats: “The states with the highest concentration of arts and cultural jobs, with their location quotients: New York (1.47), Wyoming (1.30), Washington (1.28), California and Utah (both 1.17), Rhode Island and Colorado (1.13), Alaska (1.11), Massachusetts and Oregon (both 1.09)…The Location Quotient (LQ) is a measure of an industry’s concentration in a state or region relative to the industry’s national concentration. • As for compensation, in 2014 Massachusetts and NEFA had an LQ of 1.02 and 0.94 respectively. • In 2014, Massachusetts had a location quotient of 1.09 for ACPSA employment. In Massachusetts, therefore, ACPSA employment was 9 percent above the national average. By comparison, the LQ for arts-and-cultural employment in all states belonging to the U.S. regional arts organization NEFA (of which MA is a member) was 1.03 or 3 percent above the national average.

Want to learn the concert business? Maybe we have a job for you.


Vickie and I are looking for someone who wants to learn the concert business and is willing to work at it with determined dedication. We’re a very small company. Everybody does everything, from booking to promotion to customer support to data entry to house and stage management to washing towels and shopping for the artists’ back-stage goodies. So will you.

This is not an easy job. Hours vary from week to week. Priorities can change suddenly without warning. No matter how much you prepare, the unexpected always happens. And sometimes it all seems to be going terribly wrong.

If you are an excellent communicator, great with people, thrive on challenge, love to learn, love music, embrace the unknown and can find clever ways to get stuff done with almost no supervision, this could be the job for you. It’s not an internship. You’ll get paid.

Watch our video (below) and get a taste of what it’s like to put on an outdoor concert (most of our shows are not outdoors, but it’s the only video we have that shows some of the work we do behind the scenes).

CLICK HERE. Check the box that says, “I want to be on your Street Team” (Oh, did we say you’ll be managing a street team too?) and tell us why you want to learn the concert business. We’ll get back to you.

Want to work in the Concert Business?

We need help.  You probably know that we’re producing a new concert series at North Shore Music Theatre this summer featuring top local talent on stage with national recording stars (more info here).

As you can see from this video (taken from the Celebrate Gloucester DVD) concerts are a lot of work — and we do EVERYTHING, from dreaming up the idea to organizing talent, lights, sound, staging porta-potties … to convincing someone to purchase a VIP ticket when he wasn’t planning on it (you can see that in the video) to designing, printing and hanging posters to … well you get the idea.

So, if this looks like fun to you and you’re willing to work as hard as we do, we’ve got a job for you.  And it pays.  20 hours a week to start.  Full time later this year.  You need lots of energy, just the right amount of ambition, a love of live music, brilliant communication skills (texting doesn’t count) and fairly thick skin.

If this sounds like you, we’ll have a lot of fun together!  Call Vickie or Peter at 978-525-9093 or click here to contact us.

It’s Monday.  That means Bandit Kings host an open jam @ Rhumbline.  Always a good time.  Big music week here on Cape Ann.  You can’t get to everything so check out the full week’s music lineup and start thinking about where you want to go.
