With the early (and lengthy) shutdown of the hospitality and entertainment industries – a pair of freshly out-of-work local musicians decided to find a way to keep the music alive, help out their mates and colleagues, and try and bring a little bit of joy into people’s lives in this time of worldwide uncertainty.
The plan: to create a friendly, familiar, and safe space for local musicians to continue to play and perform, as well as keep in contact with their fans, friends, families, locals, and colleagues.
A small DIY studio, built on-premise in a barn, a stage provided by a local venue, and a complex and unique custom technology setup serves as the biggest stage set for Brisbane’s professional musicians.
Almost daily it serves as the place to go to interact, the place to catch your mates, the place to go have a beer and listen to some tunes. The place to go to catch “the regular” that you’ve been seeing every week for 10 years down at the pub… It serves as the place to get that little taste of normality.
Building, engaging and moving forward: From the start of May, The Lockdown Lounge is starting the rollout of the second generation of their platform – re-focusing on music business, managing the downtime as well as ensuring all stakeholders are prepared to bring entertainment business back smoothly once COVID-19 has passed.
Please Note: The Lockdown Lounge LIVE operates as a not-for-profit organisation during the COVID-19 lockdown.
