Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans for filmmakers, musicians, the arts, guitars and entertainment

By Lynda Carson - July 15, 2020

As the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic continues to run rampant across the nation leaving tens of thousands of people sick and dead in its wake, it has been an economic disaster for many in the world of filmmakers, the arts, musicians, guitar makers, music stores and the entertainment industry.

Reportedly, the Sundance Institute, founded by actor Robert Redford, has recently announced that they had to lay off 24 workers throughout the organization, and are expecting hard times ahead.

According to a ProPublica website and database that allows people to track the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans to numerous different industries and entities seeking assistance, it shows that a $2-5 million loan was approved for the Sundance Institute to help them out in these troubling times.

According to a ProPublica website about the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) federal government program, in part it reads, “As part of the Paycheck Protection Program, the federal government provided up to $659 billion in financial support to banks to make low-interest loans to companies and nonprofit organizations in response to the economic devastation caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Search the loans approved by lenders and disclosed by the Small Business Administration (SBA).

Companies and nonprofit organizations that receive PPP loans may have the loans forgiven if they meet certain criteria, including not laying off employees during an 8-week period covered by the loan. Applicants must attest in their application that the loans are necessary for their continuing operation. Note: This data includes loan applications approved by banks and submitted to the SBA. It may not reflect money distributed to, or credit used by, a given company.”

PPP loans for filmmakers, musicians, the arts, guitars and entertainment:

In San Francisco, a loan was approved in the amount of $150,000-350,000 for the Golden Gate Performing Arts, in addition to a loan that was approved for $1-2 million to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, including a loan approved for $5-10 million to the San Francisco Ballet Association. A $5-10 million loan was also approved for the San Francisco Symphony.

Across the San Francisco Bay in Oakland, a loan for $150,000-350,000 was approved for the Paramount Theatre of the Arts on Broadway St. The Oakland Symphony generally performs at the Paramount Theatre of the Arts, however because of the coronavirus pandemic they have been performing on Zoom while sheltering in place. Recently they did a wonderful performance of ‘This Land Is Your Land,” by Woody Guthrie, which may be heard by clicking here.

In Hollywood, the famed Studio Instrument Rentals (S.I.R.) on Sunset BLVD, founded by Dolph Rempp and Ken Berry, brother of Jan Berry of the famous legendary surf music band called Jan and Dean many years ago, needed two PPP loans. A $350,000-1 million loan was approved for S.I.R., on May 4, 2020.

Additionally, a loan of $350,000-1 million was approved for S.I.R. in New York City. S.I.R. has other locations across the country offering tour support for many famous musicians and bands, including rehearsal studios, sound stages, and instrument rentals among other services.

Indeed, through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) even a loan of $5-10 million was approved for Carnegie Hall in New York City, in addition to PPP loans for numerous bands and musicians including Three Dog Night, The Black Keys, Eagles, Cheap Trick, Reo Speedwagon, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Kenny G, Air Supply, Ambient, Papa Roach, Wiz Khalifa, Weezer, and other groups. See a few links further below…

A loan of $350,000-1 million was approved for the Messina Touring Group, a tour supporter for Taylor Swift, George Strait, Ed Sheeran, and other musicians.

PPP loans for music stores and guitar builders:

A loan of $150,000-350,000 was approved for the famed music store called Gruhn Guitars in Nashville, and a loan of $350,000-1 million was approved for Collings Guitars the makers of some fine guitars, in addition to a loan of $2-5 million that was approved for Paul Reed Smith Guitars. Additionally, a loan of $150,000-350,000 was approved for the Santa Cruz Guitar company, the makers of some fine guitars.

Since the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place orders took effect, it has been a financial hardship on many guitar builders/luthiers and musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area, and across the nation.

In fact, things have become so difficult for the entertainment industry to survive since the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic set in killing tens of thousands of loved ones across the nation, that even the Muppets are struggling to survive at this point. A loan of $2-5 million was approved on April 15, 2020, for the Jim Henson Company in Hollywood.

If interested, see a few links below to see how your tax dollars are hard at work to help the roadies, musicians, bands and other workers in the music industry that are struggling to survive.

Note: About music links above... Have patience...

If you click on one of the music links above and a gray window opens with the message that it is in error, and to try back later, just have patience for a few seconds and the music video will appear without doing anything else. You do not have to try back later...
