We are committed above all to keeping everyone safe and healthy! We have implemented the following guidelines for these live-stream events and asked that everyone acknowledge the following agreements, which will help limit everyone’s exposure as much as possible.

Please practice appropriate social distancing while in the space. No hugs or high fives!

* We will have one engineer available to run sound and live stream.

* We will sanitize the room and the equipment prior to each event. Everything will already be setup and sanitized prior to your arrival.

* Each musician will need to bring and use their own microphone.

* We encourage each musician and staff member to wash their hands as soon as they enter the building, to use good hygiene practices and keep at least 6-10 feet from one another for the entirety of your time in the space, do not touch each others’ equipment, and wash hands again when leaving.

* We encourage small groups to keep numbers down.

* If anyone is feeling ill or showing any symptoms of any illness whatsoever in the days leading up to your slot, they will need to stay home.
