Since I was seven-years-old, I took many lessons a month to learn to play guitar, piano, drums in addition to bass. Music is far more than an interest for me. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. I joined my first band when I was twelve and we would play at birthday parties, ceremonies, graduation parties, bars, clubs, in addition to sizable concert halls. I am currently a member of 4 different bands, which keeps myself and others busy with constant practices in addition to performances. We frequently play at local bars in addition to clubs, which has its downsides. Hauling in addition to setting up a ton of instruments and gear is time-consuming in addition to exhausting. Both of us play the majority of gigs during the warm season, but the heat and humidity is a major problem. Most of the local arenas don’t have adequate air conditioner to handle the crowds. They usually choose to open windows in addition to doors, rather than spend money on the energy bill to run the cooling system. With a ton of people crowded into a tight space, the lights in addition to heat from equipment, the air gets searing, sticky in addition to stuffy. A few open windows aren’t enough. I would suggest closing up the locale in addition to running a modern, energy efficient air conditioner; I think it would be very cost effective. People would be comfortable, stay longer, in addition to spend more money. My bands have gotten to the point where every one of us ask what kind of cooling plan the arena has before ever committing to the task. While we’re willing to play the locales that are unwilling to run the air conditioning system, every one of us think to bring along some box fans in addition to a cooler full of freezing water. We’re prepared to sweat profusely in addition to be worn out by the end of our act.
