Irish music has become increasingly popular in recent years, which has inspired many fans to start their own Irish music club. Sometimes, unfortunately, their art hasn’t matched their enthusiasm and clubs close before they’ve had a chance to form. Here are some tips for building a club that will last and thrive.
1 Find the right place.
A pub or bar is obvious, but plan for a separate space in the back or upstairs away from the main bar. It gives you a lot more control. If you use the main bar it will be difficult to get an entry fee as people who are not interested in the music are eager to enter. A separate room also allows you to silence people while the singers perform. Provide good parking and close to public transport, because then more people can get along, which increases the chances of success. This cozy country bar may look nice, but if no one can go there, it’s no good.
2 Make sure you have a large group of musicians behind you before you begin
. Ideally you need at least 10 reliable actors because not everyone will be able to do it every night and the last thing you want is for the audience to come but there is no one to entertain them.
Try to get a good overview of the artists. Irish music is so rich and diverse that you’ll want your 풀싸롱 to reflect it. Someone twisting Celtic ballads can be very enjoyable, but it would be even more effective if the ballads were mixed with chants and drinking songs or a live band playing jigs and wheels.
4 Give the apartment a professional touch.
It can be expensive, but most successful clubs manage to save their earnings each week and hire a professional once a month. This will give your club more credibility and the extra people the pros catch will hopefully come to your singing parties as well
5 Find someone you trust at the door to take the money.
This is often overlooked, but not everyone can be a star. Someone who can handle the finances is crucial to the survival of your club. Irish music never seems to go out of style, so if you can build a successful club, you have to be able to sustain it and keep it going for years to come.
