Starting a Band: The Four Cities You Should Visit for Inspiration

It is said that music makes the world go round. It transcends across countries, continents, cultures, and language barriers and cuts right to the heart and soul of people. No matter what genre of music someone connects to, the fact is that there is that connection. As a musician yourself, you understand just how incredible it is to play in front of a live audience, feel their reaction, make that connection, and affect people.

But perhaps you have reached the point with your music goals where you no longer want to just go at it alone, and instead, you want to form a band. This means it is time to write new music, find a new sound, and learn how to feed off each other. All of this requires creative inspiration, which is not something you can just turn on and off. That is precisely why you may want to consider hitting the road as a band and start looking for inspiration.

Here is a look at four cities you and your band should visit for inspiration.

New York City

New York City is, of course, the home to Broadway musicals, and with that in mind, its musical roots are deep. And it is not just Broadway that you will find here; New York City is often described as a melting pot of musical genres, which means you will find a little bit of everything here. It is a great way to find inspiration outside of what you know and are comfortable with, pushing creativity to the next level.

You could even book some rehearsal time with you and your band while in New York City and take advantage of the fabulous amenities available.

Pirate.com has a Queens rehearsal studio that allows musicians to practice 24/7, so it will certainly work with your schedule. And it comes equipped with free guitar amps, mics, PA, and drum kids to use — you simply book online. This means you can find a full-feature Queens rehearsal studio nearby to where you are staying and allow that inspiration to run through you..

Nashville

If your music genre of choice happens to be country music, then Nashville is an absolute must-visit. The entire city is oozing with talent, country music history, living legends who have performed and now put down roots in Nashville, and tons of live music scenes to check out.

Sometimes, the best way to get inspired is to listen to other musicians, make a connection with them, and allow those feelings to spark your own ideas.

Some of the must-visit attractions include the Bluebird Cafe and the Grand Old Opry — both famous for the top-level talent that has performed there. Another must-see attraction would be the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, which is filled with some of the genre’s most talented stars ever.

Berlin

But it is not just the United States that has inspirational music cities, as you can find them all around the globe. Berlin has managed to make a name for itself in the jazz, techno, electro, and house scenes.

It has got a real variety of musicians that call the city home, and you will find everything from a high-energy techno party scene to a soulful jazz club that you can sit back and relax in.

One of the things that Berlin really seems to be focused on right now is the live music scene. This can be the best way to find inspiration when visiting Berlin. Some of the most popular and trending DJs are known to hit the club circuit in the city, so be sure to take a look at who is spinning and where.

London

You simply cannot put a list of the most inspirational music cities to visit without also including London.

London has long since been a place where up-and-coming bands go to showcase their music and try to make it big.

It has been a popular city for such bands as the Beatles, the Kinks, the Clash, and The Rolling Stones — in other words, the true royalty of rock bands and music.

The city features endless music venues to check out, plenty of live music to take in, and a scene that is both unique and welcoming to all. And what is great is that, no matter what time of year, what day of the week, or even what time of the day it is, you will always be able to find a fabulous place to take in some great tunes.

Go Ahead and Find Your Inspiration

So, if you and your newly formed band are looking for a little musical inspiration, these are some of the top cities worth travelling to in order to really soak it all in.

What a fantastic way to spark that creative side in you and help you and the band to bond!
