“Good songs are needed now more than ever.” “I hope musicians can continue to contribute their talents.” “Most of the bluegrass artists I know have incomes that are largely based on shows.” “We will keep watching.” These are all statements voiced to us by fans in the last 48 hours. And at The Station Inn, we feel exactly the same way. We have been working diligently for our musicians, who have lost their ability to earn money and perform during this international quarantine, while also being wise to the advice of the World Health Organization and local health officials.
Two years ago, The Station Inn installed a broadcasting system with multiple cameras, high quality audio, and streaming technology. This was intended to take the music from our stage, and make them available to our fan base that could not physically be in Nashville. But we see a much greater need right now. We have before us a great opportunity to help musicians in Nashville. We believe that music is important in dark times like this to help us all pull through as a community. We want to continue to bring the music.
While we are excited about our unique ability to help our local musicians, we are also taking extreme steps for the safety of our staff and the bands during these shows. Today, before any musicians enter the building, we are doing a full deep clean and sterilization of The Station Inn. Between each performance, microphones, stands, wires, and equipment will be cleaned. Also, the number of people in the club will be limited to the performers, essential production people, and a staff person who will be cleaning equipment, tables, etc immediately after use. We will have fewer than 10 people on site at all times. The Station Inn will remain closed to the public during the shutdown.
Please watch our Facebook Page (www.stationinn.com/facebook) and our email announcements (www.stationinn.com/newsletter) for updates about performances and watch locations. Please consider supporting our local musicians.
