Opening a music venue during a pandemic has been quite an experience! From the beginning of this, we have taken safety very seriously, and we are confident that we have been able to create an environment that is just as safe as going to the grocery store or out to eat. And while coming to our shows is not without risk, we have received great feedback from guests that they felt very safe while they were here. We have gone above and beyond the State orders to create an environment that we personally feel safe in, we would never put any employees or guests in a position that we wouldn’t feel safe in ourselves. However, we understand that everyone is at a different level of what they are comfortable with, we know a lot of people who live and breathe for music, who haven’t been out to a show because they just aren’t there yet, and we totally respect that. There are no right or wrong answers here and we support everyone’s right to decide what is best for themselves. Booking shows has also been a challenge, as we are relying primarily on regional artists, since there aren’t any national tours happening. We are thrilled to be able to spotlight these regional and local artists, and they are putting on some amazing shows that we are so fortunate to get to experience. If you have been to one of our shows, you know. You know how much better you feel at the end of the night walking out the doors than you did when you walked in. That’s what live music does, and we need that more than ever right now. We are so thankful that we were able to open our doors during a time when many venues were closing theirs. We are adapting and adjusting every day to make things work in a time where everything is unprecedented, and nothing is predictable. We have been fortunate that we have not had to postpone or cancel any events thus far, but it was bound to happen. We are super bummed that we have to postpone this week’s show with In The Whale, with a future date tbd. And because we know money is tight for so many people right now, we will be automatically issuing refunds to everyone who already purchased tickets, no need to do anything, we got you.
We appreciate you all so much for supporting this project. Thank you to everyone who has come out to a show, all of the artists who have shared their gifts with us, and all of our employees who are working extra hard at bringing in shows and providing a safe and fun environment for us all.
Now back to work for us, we’ve got Battle of the Bands tonight and we’re working on some more show announcements coming soon! Stay safe friends! ✌️ ❤️ 🎸
