Due to the rising covid cases around the area & concerns about everyone's well-being, we are going back to mandatory masks to enter the building & walking the hallways/lounge areas,regardless of vaccine status. If you do not have a mask, you will not be permitted to come upstairs or enter any of the practice rooms. This applies to our hourly room patrons AND our monthly room occupants. We will continue to sanitize our hourly rooms between bands as we have before. Thank you for understanding and please be safe this holiday season ❀ πŸŽ„

Just to let everyone know about the precautions we are taking due to the COVID 19 pandemic..

During this time we recommend that clients bring their own microphones if possible.

If that isn’t possible we do still have mics available. They will have a disposable cover on them which will be swapped out between bands.

Also, in between bands we will be disinfecting all surfaces in the practice rooms.

Regularly we will be going through the whole building disinfecting door knobs, trash cans, and other relevant surfaces that could get touched by people as they pass through the area.

Bathroom surfaces will be disinfected and cleaned on a daily basis.

As with everything else, wear a mask and wash your hands.

Be safe out there.

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since we've made a post on here, but we hope all of you are safe & doing ok during the current situation. As of now we are closed for bookings, but hopefully should be re-opening soon when it's deemed safe enough. Also, our website is in the process of being remodeled, so once that is up & running we'll let everyone know. So stay home, be safe, and we'll see everyone soon enough!

Anyone looking to split their monthly spot? We are chill, have the cash, don't need to play every night. Just need secure spot for some gear and a weekly practice.
Is anyone at Surreal interested in subletting their space to other bands??
Yep
