When you think about listening to music, do earbuds and mp3’s immediately come to mind? Do you mostly listen to music on the radio while traveling from one place to another? If you can’t remember the last time you saw a live performance, Hailey's is the place for you! Read on to find out the 4 most important reasons why live music matters and then make plans to see our live music performers soon!
1. See the Sweat
Music doesn’t come out of a machine, a cloud, or a search engine. People make music, and it takes a lot of energy, dedication, and commitment. If you rarely see live music, it is easy to forget how much work goes into that killer beat, sweet riff, or catchy melody. Come to Hailey's and get close enough to see the passion, energy, and yes, sweat, that goes into making music. You will definitely walk away with a deeper appreciation for what musicians do.
2 Share Experiences
Spending time with friends or family enjoying live music is a great way to bond. Shared musical experiences will become memories that can last a lifetime. It also feels amazing to be completely absorbed in the music and then glance around the room to see you’re surrounded by so many others who feel the same way!
Although it is becoming more and more common for audiences to watch performances through their smartphone cameras, attending a live music event at Hailey's is actually a great opportunity to unplug from your devices and enjoy the present moment. There is so much to see, hear and feel at the performance, so don't spend your time glued to a screen. You might find that the time you spend enjoying music in the moment with your cellphone switched off refreshes your mind and gives you a perspective on life.
4.Support Local Artists
It has always been hard to make a living as an artist, and it is particularly difficult now that so much music is available for free online. Many musicians now make more money performing than they do from their recordings, so if there is an artist whose work moves you, one of the best ways to show your support is to attend their next appearanc at Hailey's. Especially for independent artists playing in our smaller venue, a supportive audience is one of the most wonderful things a musician can see and hear!
