As some of you know from a previous posts my shop is a free-standing building behind my house that doubles as a playroom for Dad and his WW as well as son and his music. They were practicing the other night when I was in the shop cleaning. There’s been several blogs about what kind of music everyone listens to in the shop but I think I can claim the only shop with live entertainment.

What a good idea. For me today it was Delbert McCliton, Albert Collins, & some Stephen Bruton. Still can’t get it loud enough when I turn on the machinery. Oh well, I don’t have to answer the phone most of the time.

Roger, I thought that you had a pretty nice set up but, after seeing this video, I can’t think of anything more that you would need in your shop. I have a radio in mine that I have to crank up when running my dc and air cleaner to hear. But this should not be a problem in your shop. :) Those guys looked like they were having fun.

Guess I need to forget my next tool investment and go out and buy me a live-in band – that was cool!

We have a music room downstairs next to my reloading/small workshop and while I can not match your
movie skills, my wife is a drummer (google Wild Coyote Band on facebook or Reverbnation) and her band
practices songs here on a whenever schedule and she practices her singing, guitar, piano playing also, so
I get quite a bit of live music. While my woodworking shop can not come close to yours, I prefer my
music, but concerning taste there can be no dispute. Thank you for sharing.

I thought I had the coolest shop in the land with eight large speakers wired up throughout in the rafters. Then here you are with a live band above you. I’m jealous.

Great shop. Three times the size of mine, but… you can’t lay claim to the only studio (and live music) above your shop. There are at least two of us ! It’s been a long time since I have heard (or played) any KISS, but Detroit Rock City was surely one of the sounds of my teenage youth. Aren’t you glad they aren’t into rap ?

Sounding good !

So I guess we can add a band now to tool lists? Great sounding bunch and good song, I’ve been listening to a lot of KISS lately, more non makeup years though.
