Getting Back to Live Music
Gallaghers Pub HB and So-Cal Hoedown

I recently had a chance to ask Scott Tucker (Sellout Productions) some questions about the transition back to live music as we approach the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  1. When did Sellout Productions start promoting live music?
    ST: 25 years ago i was an out of work telemarketer, then I started interning at Dr Dream records… met some bands and did a few shows. Now looking back maybe I should have stayed a telemarketer lol.
  2. What were some of the challenges that were faced during the pandemic?
    ST: How to keep a bar (Gallaghers Pub HB) open and how to plan for when shows return (and thats still going on).
  3. How many times did you need to cancel or reschedule shows (roughly)?
    ST: The Hoedown was rescheduled once from June to Sept. The rest of the Gallaghers calendar unfortunately had to be cancelled.
  4. Were you able to do anything new during the pandemic to help make ends meet during the lockdowns?
    ST: Not really, we tried Streaming shows but that’s not really for us. We just plugged along and tried to not go crazy.
  5. What are some of the moving parts you need to negotiate when putting together festivals like the So-Cal Hoedown?
    ST: Bands, Promotion and Marketing and Production are the obvious answers. We use offsite parking and have a shuttle bus we hire to bring people in if they don’t want to walk. We have tons of little things like the bar we run inside the show and getting new and unique vendors. It’s a long day so we want to have some entertainment other than just bands bands and bar. Some ideas are forming! No Car Show it was hard to manage.
  6. What changes have you had to make at live shows so people feel safe (in regards to the pandemic)?
    ST: The Hoedown is a 12 Acre Space so plenty of room. For the Live Shows at Gallaghers, we have spaced out the tables. We also have an outside patio with tenting and we are showing the stage on close circuit TV on the patio.  We are just trying to make a cohesive mix of safe and normal.
  7. What changes have you had to integrate because the State required it? Or is it business as usual?
    ST: State requirements are reducing a lot so normalcy is returning for sure.
  8. Do you have any big plans for 2022?
    ST: 2022?? I just wanna survive the summer lol
