Although we are still social distancing, amid COVID-19 we’ve been given a little bit of light with the gradual reopening of the State of Texas and surrounding areas. For fellow creatives and musicians like myself, this is a huge sigh of relief because it gives us a chance to get out and utilize venues like we are accustomed to doing. Having access to The Music Box and their hourly practice rooms is right at the top of the list when it comes to venues to use. With spaces at both their Love Field and Kessler Park locations, it gives us access to spaces that allows us to meet with band members and singers to rehearse, sharpen, or simply vibe out.
Now the availability super helps me and my crew out as we prepare for small show gigs, and on a small scale playing party venues that are starting to book party bands. I’m pretty sure we can all attest to the struggle of trying to fit full-size bands and singers into our houses or apartments for a quality rehearsal only to be met with the complaints from regarding noise regulations or the ultimate acceptance that your space is not adequate enough to facilitate that type of gathering. I loathe as a drummer having to scale down my kit to accommodate sound parameters and then pretending that the session or practice is getting the full amount of energy and free filling that we are accustomed to. So for no other reason than the ability to play as free and as loud as I desire. I am excited about the ability to book space and gather with my friends and bandmates and vibe out.
I don’t want you to think that there aren’t still hurdles we have to overcome, the regulations for how to use the equipment are changing. Spacing will be different, as will probably the time allowances. But in spite of all that, I’ll take the ability to be joined in the room with dope people and grab a collective vibe doing what we love. I’d also advise to book early as I can imagine that there scores of other musicians and bands in the same boat. Yes, I’m looking at you fellow band members that love to wait until the last minute to try and book things! Lol It’s a different time!!! Happy shedding everyone!
