Must-have requirements for live music performances during Phase 3

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A familiar sound is back in Capital City restaurants, live music.

“That’s how we socialize down here. We get together with a bunch of food, good music, couple drinks, and we have a good time,” Brad Moran said.

Pit-N-Peel on Government St. is welcoming artists back to perform indoors. This comes after the new phase 3 guidelines lifted restrictions on indoor performances.

Elvondae Rayvon, the owner of the popular seafood restaurant, says bringing back live music is great for his business.

“Music has always been a part of the culture, and when you tie it to food, it just brings a festive atmosphere,” Rayvon said.

With the music comes guidelines. According to the State Fire Marshall, here are the list of must-have requirements if singing and wind instruments are part of the performance:

  • Capacity should not exceed 50% even if the business type has a greater allowable capacity per the proclamation (exception: a venue with permanent or fixed seating like in a theater).
  • The HVAC system that serves the space where the performers and audience will be should conduct six air exchanges per hour.
  • There should be 20 feet between performers and the audience (exception: if plexiglass is used as a separation mechanism, this distance can be reduced to 10 feet).
  • The audience is to be seated, spaced, and remain seated throughout the performance.
  • Audience members must remain masked when not actively consuming food or beverage.
  • Performers must remain masked when not actively performing.
  • Performers must remain six feet apart (9×6 if wind instrument musicians)
  • Wind instrument bell covers should be used in all settings.

In addition to the above must-haves, only one of the below options are also needed if singing and wind instruments will be used:

(1) Direct airflow toward the stage/performers at a minimum rate of 2,000 cfm (a fan that meets that minimum rate is suffice).Article source:
