Music in the hallways
Posted 08 May 2013 - 08:48 AM
I wanted to get some input on playing music in the lobby or possibly outdoors.
I've done this in the past inside the hotel and have had mixed responses from IRT and hotel staff.
From what I have been told, it seems that it is ok to play music as long as you are not blocking any traffic from getting around the hotel.
What I want to do is set up a collapsible table to hold my laptop, a midi controller and two speakers. Volume won't be too loud - I would keep it at a respectable volume.
My question is:
Are there any good spots to do this that I won't have any issues?
Last year I setup at the top of the escalators (to the right along the glass barrier) and had no issues until it got later and was told to wrap it up - which I did no problem.
This year I want to do it as legit as possible so I don't cause any problems.
Also if I could get some feedback from you dance-a-holics whether or not this would interest you, that would be awesome.

What this boils down to, though, is that anywhere you set up will be okay, until it's not, which is not a satisfying answer. Unfortunately, I can't give you a good place to set up, because I've seen crowds everywhere in our space, but if you found a place that worked well for you last year, it should be much the same this year.

So I guess I'll try my luck setting up above the escalators again.
Maybe I can tuck myself in the corner over by the bar so that there is ample room for people to get by.
