Empty Stages"- During this Covid 19 Pandemic we wonder if the stage misses us?

It's show day: We get up pack our bags, check our instruments, load up and hit the road. Telling stories of our past week to everyone in the truck laughing all the way to our location. The smell of the summer air as the widows are open cruising down the road the music is playing softly as we focus and we discuss tonight's setlists.

We arrive at our location the adrenaline kicks in it's load in and set up time. We briefly discuss speaker location and light set up. The trailer door opens the actual work of the best job in the world begins, laughing and joking as we roll out our equipment for the show! The smell of the speakers as you take off the protective covers, the gleem in your eye as you open the the tour racks, the touch of the XLR cords as you systematically lay them out for the night. The banging of trussing going together, the lifting & stretching of our arms as we hang lights and our band flag " The Banner"! Every member is setting up their personal gear as the soundman is running mic cords.

Initial work is done the stage plot is complete you now hear the first chord ring out on the guitar, the first beat of the kick drum, a perfectly clear sound of a full G chord strummed on the acoustic guitar, the beautiful sound of the keysboards, the low end of the bass amp. The soundman is ready it's time for soundcheck, vocals then instruments. Front of house complete "check", monitors complete "check", lighting complete "check", clean up and organizing for the end of the night load out is discussed.

The band members grab their bags and head to the rooms to get ready. Mirrors, makeup bags, the smell of perfumes, cologne and hair spray are constant. Band member garment discussions are the talk of the room. Boots, belts, and jewelry! The band is ready for the night but the focus now is a little relaxation and getting mentally prepared for the show.

15 minutes to show time, you now start hearing the music from the PA as the soundman is doing final adjustments.
We do our final checks:
-Setlists
-Batteries
-Drum sticks
-Guitar picks
-Water
-Business cards

People are pouring into the venue to celebrate life, they are ready to dance and eager for the party to begin! Bartenders and staff are working hard. We head to our destination smiling from ear to ear, walking, talking & laughing then we turn the corner we suddenly see the stage again. We call it "The Office for the Night" - the best career in the world! Let the music begin!

Empty Stage we will see you soon!
