If you are booking an outdoor event it is paramount that you have a wet weather plan. As far as musicians are concerned, water and music gear does not mix – we are talking electrical issues and hazards as well as expensive wooden instruments getting ruined by raindrops. Not stuff you want happening! A few good things for considering a wet weather option:
- Call it early, if there is a risk of rain make sure you do your wet weather plan, it’s better that then a late call and mid-event move.
- Be respectful of your musician, you may be ok with a few raindrops on your shirt, musicians have higher stakes however and as much as we would like to see your event succeed we can’t risk our gear and safety.
- Be prepared, have everything ready to go and the plan clear to all stakeholders so you can move quickly and easily to your new venue.
- Plan inside, it might be easier just to have your event indoors – it’s worth considering.
