Sir Mix-a-Lot fights to ‘Keep Music Live’ in Seattle amid pandemic struggles

Seattle is synonymous with music royalty, from Jimi Hendrix to Heart and Nirvana. Now Puget Sound’s rich music history is facing a crossroads as the COVID-19 pandemic forced the closure of many small, independently-owned venues, with some on the brink of closing for good.

It’s a problem across the entire state. The same stages that are now struggling once introduced the likes of Pearl Jam. Ben Haggerty became Macklemore on Seattle’s smaller stages.

Anthony Ray was a DJ at the Rotary Boys & Girls Club in Seattle until he became known as Sir Mix-a-Lot. Mix has been championing the “Keep Music Live Washington” movement for many months and is looking to help protect the future of Seattle’s beloved music venues.
