COVID 19 UPDATE

KMD Rehearsal Rooms are now open.

With your help we can do this, please be patient and kind, we are currently in unknown territory and hence we are all still learning!

Your safety is my primary concern. I will be closely monitoring this ever changing situation and will apply whatever changes are necessary to ensure I am following current government guidelines to the best of my ability.

I know it’s a lot to take on board, if you’re concerned, nervous, unsure, whatever you’re thinking or feeling talk to me, don’t forget we’re all in this together!

That’s it!

All you need to do now is what you love doing, so without further ado......come make some beautiful noise!

See you soon,

Gary.

Our Covid-19 safety measures are firmly in place which include......

  • Firstly, if you are ill then don’t come! Any symptoms then please stay at home.  If you or any band member should contract Covid or have recognised symptoms within 14 days following your session then please notify me immediately.
  • No walk-ins!  Bookings are currently limited to a maximum of 2 bands per day/evening with staggered arrival times. This is to allow a thorough deep clean between sessions. Currently there will be no late slots unless specifically by prior arrangement.
  • You will need to provide me with a full list of attendees to include names and phone numbers. Only band members will be permitted to enter.
  • Fixed 3 hour slots for bands are as follows
    18.30 - 21.30
    19.00 - 22.00
  • Solo artists can still book per hour with a minimum 2 hour booking. I prefer to run solo sessions away from peak evening times and at weekends wherever possible.
  • I am limiting numbers in rooms to ensure social distancing
    Room 1 = 5 persons max.
    Room 2 = 6 persons max.
  • Social distancing (zones) are clearly marked and are all at 2 metre minimum distances.
  • No equipment is to be relocated and everything must remain where found on entry.
  • Please ensure anything you bring with you has been cleaned, instruments, heads, cables, pedalboards etc.
  • I would prefer you to bring your own microphones, if you do not have your own then specify the zones they are required in and I will provide them for you with a disposable cover that you must use. There is a limit of 3 mics per room at the moment, I may review this as things progress. At the end of your session remove the disposable microphone covers and place them in your rubbish bins that you are taking with you when you leave.
  • No lender gear at the moment so make sure you bring everything you need. I can provide cymbals and other bits-n-bobs but this will incur further costs as everything has to be cleaned between sessions.
  • The kitchen area is closed until further notice. No glasses, cups, cutlery etc will be available and no communal use of fridge or microwave at this time.
  • No foodstuffs or drinks in the rooms, you will be permitted to take in personal supplies of water in bottles/containers you can drink from directly. These must have sealable lids.
  • There are no bins in the rooms at this time, you will be provided with a bin bag and you must take all your rubbish with you when you depart.
  • Please park considerately and remain in your vehicles until I greet you individually.  Arrive and leave on time, there will be no early admittance and no late leavers right now.
  • Please maintain social distancing at all times. Wait until areas are clear before you move into them. Look before rushing out of doors. Pay attention to others within communal areas and wait when necessary to maintain social distancing especially if in line for toilet facilities or when using main entrance etc.
  • I will not hesitate to ban individuals or bands who are not following guidelines and therefore putting others and myself at risk. This simply will not be tolerated.  Signs for your safety are on display, please read and follow the guidance. Remember this is for your safety and the safety of those around you.
  • Use provided hand sanitisers before entering and leaving the premises and before and after handling equipment such as mixers, amps, etc. Only high quality medical grade sanitisers are in use.  Wash your hands regularly during your stay. There is a small basin next to the toilet and a new paper towel dispenser on the wall, place used paper towels and personal hygiene products in the bin provided.
  • What are the ‘ticks’ I see everywhere? These are surfaces and area which are marked and labelled once they have been cleaned and disinfected. I ask that you avoid touching surfaces unnecessarily during your stay and refrain from using areas that are not marked with a tick. ALL areas are thoroughly cleaned and this is just an extra precaution and a personal checklist of hygiene protocols. I pay particular attention to door handles, wall switches, socket fronts, areas of doors regularly touched, toilet flush button, toilet seat, taps, basin, dispensers and other areas of heavy traffic and handling. Door handles are cleaned as soon as you are in the rooms with the doors shut and again before closing. All switches on sockets will be in the on position during your stay, please do not handle these, plug your equipment in and only handle your plug, there is no need to touch the socket fronts or switches.
  • Following advice from my air conditioning service engineer, our units will remain switched off at this time. It is suggested that you take breaks and open the doors and let some fresh air in. Ensure you are not playing during this time. If this looks like this may be a lengthy period of time I will fit fresh air intakes to both rooms.
  • Our outside ‘chill zone’ is not in use, you may congregate outside by your vehicles but you must maintain social distancing at all times.
  • Beyond the rooms and our car park the rest of the farm is private property and you must respect that.

REHEARSAL ROOM Zones

The rooms are divided into multiple zones identifiable in the photos below and found on our Facebook page.  Please identify the zones you will be using and specify what is required in each zone. Supply me with a list of anything you will be bringing with you, for example heads, cabs etc.
