Can someone please tell me if we need a permit to have live music on the beach in Seagrove? thanks
The County requires permits for gatherings over 50 people. Even if smaller and if your music will be electrified I would contact the County to make sure. You might want a permit to be safe.
In addition to what kurt said, regarding amplified music:
CODE OF ORDINANCES
Ord. No. 05-04, enacted March 22, 2005
(Supplement No. 29)
Sec. 22-54. Regulation of use and conduct on the beach and water bodies.
(i) Sound amplification. No audio device, such as loudspeakers, television, radio, compact disc, tape, record player, or musical instrument, except equipment used by law enforcement, rescue or beach safety personnel, shall be used on the beach and water bodies in any manner, that can be heard by a person using normal hearing facilities, at a distance of 100 feet or more from the source of the sound.
Regardless of whether its amplified, you need to consider where on the beach you're doing this, and when. If it's on private property or near residences, the residents may have an issue. And if it's after dark you should be especially sensitive to the effect on others.
Is it acoustic or amped?
Acoustic, one guy and his guitar. We will be respectful, no music after dark and I'll make sure we go through all the proper procedures
I wouldn't worry about a permit with one guitar. And you can play any time you want. If someone were to complain about one guitar, ask them to kindly find another beach.
Or start playing Crazy Train
How hard is it to get gigs at the bars? A musician friend of mine was over for beers the other night and brought up the idea of moving down there and getting bartending jobs and playing local bar gigs in about a year. Is it hard to get on the bills at the local joints? God knows I'm ready to move there and playing music down there would be awesome!
Quite possible if you're any good. You need to talk to Olie at the Red Bar. He would give you a shot. He's managing 3 bars now.
Awesome! My friend has been playing guitar in bands for about 14 years and is amazing to watch and listen to. The Nashville music scene is so hard to get into and so much business rather than fun and its wearing on him, so he decided its time to go. Myself on the other hand, I need a bit more practice in the next year!
There are quite a few musicians and artists from Nashville here. He might know some of them.
RO now thats funny...
If your confident of your vocals you could break into a version of rhe Immigrant Song
What Nashvillians do you have living there?
Thats a bold chance to take vocally!
But just think of how deserted the beach will be once the song is completed
There's a lot more than I know. Marc Harris lives here and plays a lot around the area.
Does Ms Crow ever show up and sit in at any of the local places
yes, I'm sure she rides in on THE BIKE .....livestrong :clap_1:
Nope. She sits in her hot tub.
