About Music ...

A question I have heard a lot lately, is whether we would play music at Gunk Haus. The short answer is maybe.

First of all, we would have to put in a sound system, which is more work, and it costs money. Putting in the sound system, however, is the easy part.

I assume you don't know this, but if we were to play music at Gunk Haus, we would have to pay royalties to the music big wigs. You read right, the music industry wants its share when we play (copyrighted) music.

For a restaurant our size the annual royalties amount to about $1000 to $2000 per year, which to us is a lot of money (if it isn't to you, please adopt me).

The National Restaurant Association has a nice summary document about music licensing for restaurants (PDF document).

So for the time being we won't play music at Gunk Haus, and you just have to talk to each other for entertainment, but that's a good thing, isn't it?!

Aren't there websites out there with free or royalty-free music out there that you might be able to stream or download from without a subscription of fee?

Yes, I think you can have the satellite radio streaming.

Yes, you are right, there are options, but at the end of the day I don't feel the need for music right now. There are bigger fish to fry ... ;-)
