    I would like to support outdoor music at bars and restaurants and indoor music with some covid restrictions. One of the best parts about living in Hermosa Beach is all the live music around town. It really has been missed during Covid. I also don't think it should be a free for all. I think the city should put a curfew on the outdoor music of either 9 or 10 pm to keep the noise issues to a minimum.

    I fully support putting our live musicians safely back to work.

    Further, I respectfully beseech that when/if live music resumes, music venues will consider how long these performers have been out of work and compensate accordingly. It's high time for musicians to make a living wage. Returning to work can and should be considered hazard pay. I'm hoping the community will stand by their own protestations of how much they've missed live music and pay proportionately.

    Let the music resume in a covid safe manner. Outside at a reasonable volume level is a good place to start.

    I am in full support of bringing back live music to our beautiful South Bay. It has been a tough year for all, and hearing music resonate through the streets will do wonders for morale, local businesses, and artists.
    Much Love,

    I fully support bringing live entertainment back to the South Bay. Being a musician myself and a resident of the South Bay, I enjoy engaging in our community events and expressing my artistic abilities with the public. I think it’s important to bring the live music back and uplift the spirits of our community as they enjoy their outdoor or indoor dining.
    Thank you and mucho aloha!

    I am fully in support of the work City Staff has provided to Council in guiding our City towards outdoor entertainment. The musicians and production teams in our community have been hurting over the past year and it is time to fully embrace them and do what is necessary to get them back to making a living and their creative endeavors. I just returned from performing in Wayne, PA, a small suburb of Philadelphia, where the community has embraced outdoor live performances and the events they are hosting are instilling a sense of community and pride that would go a long way for our little beach town. Our musical community is unique in that we all are supportive of each other and I forsee the musicians being able to navigate set times and performances so as not to sonically bleed all over each other. Live music has the ability to bring us all together, right now, when we truly need a cooperative spirit and a greater sense of connection and community. And don't we just need music to help soothe our collective mental well being after a particularly tough year of isolation and being disconnected from one another?

    Hi! I live on the border of Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach. I am in favor of bringing back musical artists inside establishments as it enhances our dining experience! It is so sorely missed.
    I believe the performances are a big part of what makes Hermosa Beach special.
    Thank you. Deb Whitcas

    Pretty soon, enough people will have been vaccInated for (or have already had) Covid....let's re-introduce music in outdoor and semi-outdoor spaces for a couple months, and if hospitalization rates continue to stay low enough, that's a good indication to keep it outdoors and further evaluate the next steps needed to eventually returning to indoor music.

    Hello, my name is Natasha Remi and I am a local musician. I believe allowing live music outdoors is imperative in order to return to a sense of normalcy after this past year. I support and approve the urgency ordinance. Thank you :)

    To whom it may concern,
    I am a resident of the LA South Bay and work in a shop in Hermosa Beach. Live performance enhances community, peace of mind and enjoyment — something we’ve been duly lacking since the pandemic struck. Musicians could perform in a safe, socially distanced way, if this ordinance is passed.

    Was recently (Saturday of last) in downtown Culver City and on restaurant in particular had Kalipso Music being performed and it created a very special outdoor ambiance. I would be mindful not to have competing outdoor music. But it definitely was nice and it was busy. As much as we can have normally including indoor music while following the health code mandate the better.

    I moved to Hermosa BECAUSE of the live music and volleyball. Please allow outdoor music to make Hermosa have a semblance of the fun that used to be. Getting my 2nd shot this week so I’ll be ready for it.

    As a long time resident that lives within two blocks of DTN HB I implore HBCC to please allow outdoor live music.
    Our community has been so negatively impacted the lockdowns and live music is something that can really help bring back our pulse! Hermosa Beach has a long history of coming together, think of the MANY years of music from the Lighthouse & our summer concerts/ Our Hermosa Festivals ect...
    I really feel by reinstating live music it will help our businesses as well improve the the overall mood of our town.
    It needs it. Music is Life!
