Thank you, Watermelon Music

From page A6 | October 03, 2012 |

I want to give a big thank you to Jeff Simons and Watermelon Music for helping us out of a jam.

A couple of Fridays ago, the band I sing for (Hardwater) had a gig at the E Street Plaza. We were almost done setting up when we realized we had no monitors. It was 30 minutes to show time and the equipment we needed was in Dixon.

I freaked out momentarily, then realized that Watermelon Music was across the street. If we were lucky, they could rent us what we needed. I ran to the store and told Jeff we had an emergency. He dropped what he was doing and came with me across the street to check my mixer for compatibility. Fortunately, he had the equipment we needed.

On the way back to the store to pick up the monitors, I was thinking about how we should split the rental fee among the band. I was wondering if this gig would end up costing me money.

I ask Jeff how much the rental fee would be and he said, “No charge.” Wow! What a generous thing to do. As a musician, Jeff was well aware that we were not getting paid much for the gig.

Musicians in Davis know that Watermelon Music is a great resource. They have a great selection, competitive prices and often help out with gear at events such as the First Thursday concerts at Odd Fellows. In this age of Internet sales, it behooves us all to make an effort to shop at our local brick-and-mortar stores. An online merchant would have been no help with our recent dilemma at the E Street Plaza.
