    IMG_3065.jpg We're lucky we have a dedicated space in our band leaders house. It's tight but there's no dragging stuff to practice except a guitar and I don't even need that.

    Nice. Pretty small, but enough room to play at least. What's the PA head? I'm looking to add something like that to my jam space.

    Tell the bandleader to stop playing games with the ketchup and mustard! :D

    Uh..I don't know. Something cheap from Guitar Center or online I think. I know it's not brand I recognized. That said it's never failed.

    Yes it is. My spot is right in front of the SG on the wall. Right next to EJ our drummer.

    This is mine :)

    It's a 1200 sq ft party room in a metal building at my place out in the country (I also have my work-from-home office there)

    It's great - walk in, hit a switch, and play! Dance floor (with disco lights), full PA and monitors, bar.

    We have had many a good party out here. I even did a TDPRI jam a long time ago (I keep telling myself to do another, but time just keeps slipping away)

    I used to have good sized space in a barn 35 years ago. That was a crazy place.

    Our drummer rents out his space to close friends and relatives, but we have plenty of room.
    We're a 4 piece band (keys, guitar, drums, bass) and all sing.

    I had a series of bands with a good friend of mine and it went on for years. For a few years we had a carpet warehouse to rehearse in. That was fine but we had to wheel everything in and then out because it was a place of business. For about 15 years my buddy ran a west coast distribution centre for a novelty wholesaler back east. He had a massive warehouse and ran the whole thing single handedly. We turned the loading bay into the perfect stealth rehearsal space. We wired it up semi permanently and made fake box fronts that you could pull off to reveal the PA speakers. There was a fake box front that pulled from one rack that revealed a large alcove that the drums, mic stands, bass and guitar amps lived in on a rolling platform. We’d roll them out set them up and roll the platform back into hiding. The Mixer was in a cupboard under a packing table. We even had some old Indian and Persian rugs we’d roll out to make it more comfortable. What a hoot.

    We always rented a place that was gated. It’s nice to be able to come and go as you please, especially if you decide to go and work something out for a song. It is nice to have a dedicated place though.
