    I have played live music in Hermosa for a decade. Since I have worked at Hermosa Valley School 10 years as the Crossing Guard, I draw school age children and their parents to my shows. It is pure joy to see the kids dancing at the Lighthouse. Great family fun that I sorely miss.

    Let the art and artistry help rebuild with the imagination and support necessary to make this moment and the moments here after build with the love and care that only art and live music, human to human, can do. “Listen to the river (ocean) sing sweet songs that rock my soul” to lead by example is the only way and your artist friends will always support your efforts to do right and want to help us all heal a great many wounds.

    I absolutely support the suspension of this ordinance so that we can allow live outdoor music. We should take full opportunity at this time to promote what we in Hermosa Beach love and take so much pride in -- live music. And a big thanks to the Chamber of Commerce for getting this through to make it on the agenda at an extremely fast pace!!

    Please allow music to commence!! It is the therapy we truly need and we need to support the local arts/music so that we can all get back in our feet. This has been a tough year for everyone.

    I have performed in Hermosa Beach for many years and it has been a way of life for me and my many musician friends. The bars and restaurants have supported live music, and the musicians have created a wonderful opportunity to connect with people of the community. This has been a difficult year with the cancelation of live concerts and events. I fully support the opportunity to bring live music back at a reasonable level for outside patios in order to help both the local businesses and musicians start to get back on their feet.

    Thank you for considering this urgency ordinance. I am a musician here in town....but that’s not the only reason I support this move to restore live music inside and outside and all around town. We have suffered an enormous calamity, and worse, this past year. Music is the one universal art that can heal a soul, a neighbor, a community, a town....so that we may come together in its pure spirit and celebrate how we have made it through. We’re double vaxxed and want to sing and dance! Thank you

    Live music has always been a key feature of Hermosa Beach and it's time for this brief pause due to COVID-19 to come to a close. Having live music in our bars and restaurants not only drives the rich culture and community our city is known for, but it drives customers into our businesses and gives our local musicians the ability to support themselves.

    As we reopen, please remove whatever red tape and expenses exist that prevent all levels of music from street musicians to full bands performing in local venues from playing with as much expediency as possible.

    Hello I am Kristal from El Tarasco, as a restaurant business owner I think allowing us to have the music would be such a change in being able to provide the customers with a happy and lively dinning experience, after this horrible year we’ve all had we really feel that being able to play music will have people feel happy and alive again , we had an experience when we first opened of one of our neighbors being on his balcony playing the saxophone and it was just such a nice feeling to see how much the customers and other people walking around just really enjoyed it. Of course with everyone still complying with the Covid regulations I think this could be a good thing for all the small restaurants and businesses up on upper pier Ave.

    It goes without saying that I am 100% in support of bringing live music back to Hermosa. Our neighboring cities (Manhattan, Redondo & Santa Monica) have already supported, promoted & allowed live music so now it's time for Hermosa to catch up. Live music is the heart of our community and these hard working musicians have been out of work for over a year. Please help us bring the live back to this beautiful city we all love so much by allowing live music again.

    I love this city, and as a local musician and lover of music, I want us to get back to being able to entertain the public while supporting ourselves financially. This is something we all need. ❤️🎶

    By supporting live music (outdoors or indoors), you’ll be supporting local musicians and their livelihoods along with filling our community with art and culture.

    I am a local business owner and 30 year resident of Hermosa Beach. My husband and I love living in Hermosa Beach and over the years have enjoyed the many beach concerts, shows at Saint Rocke, TSR, Lighthouse and other local venues. We were fortunate enough to attend the Beach Life Festival in 2019 and have tickets from 2020 that we plan to keep to attend the rescheduled event in September. We believe that live music brings our community together and also helps reduce stress in individuals who are music lovers. It is good for business and good for the soul.

    Live music delivers a very human, tangible emotional product that is more than just music. It's an experience, and that’s what our little beach city is known for: positive experiences. A great band or a live performance creates an atmosphere of positive energy that cannot be substituted. Live music is the positive energy we have been missing throughout the pandemic. I fully support the return of live music to its home in Hermosa Beach!

    I am part-owner of Studio 637 and I am in FULL support of this temporary suspension. I believe that it will help draw more business to Hermosa, and also will help support all of our amazing local musicians by giving them more opportunities to perform. We all know how hard it has been this past year, so let's do what we can to support our local business and our local musicians!! I ask all of you on the council to support and approve this urgency ordinance. Thank you!
