Whether you’re just starting off or have a solid group, finding a place to jam is one of the most important things for a band. How else will you bring the house down at your next gig or make it big without practice, practice, practice?
Unfortunately, your family and neighbors may not agree on the place you choose to jam. Garages and basements just aren’t built to keep all that awesome in one room. While you’re kickin’ it with your band mates, someone else is slamming on the door asking to keep the noise down.
With houses closer and closer together and built with thinner materials that don’t cancel noise, jamming in the suburbs these days isn’t all that easy. These spaces may also be small because they’re used for other things.
The alternatives aren’t any better. Renting a space on a regular basis comes at a premium. Then there’s soundproofing rooms – who can afford that?!
Have you ever thought of a self storage unit? You’d be shocked to know that many storage facilities offer units for band practice. You don’t need to worry about people asking you to turn it down or a cramped space anymore.
