What is it about seeing a stage when you first enter a venue that creates a rush of energy? Could it be the lights? Is it the layout or where it is located within the venue itself? Might it be seeing instruments waiting to be played? Regardless, there is something very special about a stage no matter the size of the footprint. Within local community venues like bars, nightclubs, pubs, cafes, and beer gardens, you are likely to find smaller, intimate, and low-riser style stages. But to the local band and musician who will perform on that stage, it can feel like center stage at Madison Square Garden.
