Musicians Should Always Have A Backup Generator – Here’s Why


Life is simply unimaginable without music. If we have all kinds of food to sustain our bodies, we also have all kinds of music to sustain our souls.

Whether it’s pop, classical, R&B, rock, or jazz, music truly adds flavor and essence to life. What’s even greater is the fact that music is very accessible and readily available anywhere and anytime.


The official website of composer Gilbert Galindo states that “People have always found music significant in their lives, whether for enjoyment in listening, the emotional response, performing, or creating.” Truly, music is significant and useful for personal gratification and commercial purposes.

Imagine if we were all born to a world without the sound of music. We will still live and survive but the absence of music will make life dull and monochromatic.

On a personal level, music is essential in inducing emotions, stimulating the mind, sparking inspiration, exposing talent, and guiding creation. It doesn’t really matter if you love listening to music, or if you are into creating it — the impact of music on you is great and life-changing.

On the business and commercial level, music is very important in multimedia creation, brand and marketing, movie and concert production, talent performances and discoveries, and other endeavors. Without music, movies will be dull, brands will be difficult to recall, and musical performances are simply nonexistent.


If you are a musician, you are someone who is talented, creative, and resourceful. Whether you are performing for huge events, for intimate gatherings, or for informal settings, all musicians should be ready and prepared with their talent, confidence, and equipment.

What if your musical instrument and other equipment depending on electricity and the power suddenly go out? Often times, that means the end of a performance. “See you again next time.”

But if your performance is very much needed, doesn’t it make your life better if you have a backup generator?

Here are three reasons why musicians like you should always have a backup generator in case your power goes out:

1) Electricity dependency

Many musical instruments and equipment like speakers and microphones are dependent on electric power. The logic is simple: No Power, No Music.

Having a backup generator then is life-changing. You have your own power and even if the electricity in your venue suddenly fluctuates or goes out, you can still continue playing your music with smartphones and flashlights as your stunning visual effect.

2) Uninterrupted performance

You are at the peak of your musical performance and suddenly the lights go off because the power just went out. That would often mean the end of the performance, right?

But if you have a backup generator that’s connected with your equipment and ready to supply power anytime the electricity goes out, your performance will be inevitably continuous, seamless, and excellent.

3) Adding value

Won’t it just wow your crowd or audience if you remain performing amidst power outage? Not only will it impress them, but it will also make them remember and love you even more.

Five Outdoors Tools I Can’t Live Without

Keeping your home up-to-snuff from the outside is just as important as keeping it clean on the inside. It makes a great impression on anyone who comes to visit, and it’s sure to keep the neighbors happy as an added bonus. There are definitely tools required to get the job done though, and here are a few tools that I think are absolutely essential.

Wood Chipper

A life save both in the spring and the fall, a wood chipper makes it really easy to break down all of the debris in our yard into bite-sized pieces for the compost pile. From leaves to twigs and branches, I can now take just about anything my yard throws at me and turn it back into soil that I can use in my vegetable garden. It’s a major life upgrade two accounts. No more trips to the town dump, and free, rich soil for my plants.

Snow Blower

It might not be the first thing on your mind this time of year, but if you live in a region where the snow falls hard then you’d be remiss to live a life without a snow blower. Sure, you can do all of the shoveling by hand, but your back might have something to say about it when you’re done.

Leaf Blower

I’m really not sure why, but I was very late to the game when it comes to purchase a leaf blower. Then my new maple tree dumped seemingly thousands of helicopters on my front lawn, and there just wasn’t any other practical way I could come up with to get rid of them. So finally I caved, and I can’t believe I didn’t do so sooner. Not only am I able to clean up my yard much more quickly than I could with a rake alone, but I’m also able to actually get it cleaner because the leaf blower does such a nice job.

Lawn Mower

Maintaining a good appearance at home starts with a well-groomed lawn. That’s why a lawn mower is just one of those tools that you can’t live without. If you get one that’s self-propelled it will do a lot of the physical labor for you. Always opt for a mulching blade and a removable bag so you can dump the clipping when you’re finished. Honda makes great engines if you’re looking for a brand recommendation.

Weed Whacker

Keeping your yard landscaped has a lot more to it than simply keeping the lawn mowed. The bulk of the remaining responsibilities can usually be taken care of with a weed whacker though. Clean up any untidy areas with ease, particularly around stonework and edges. I opted for an electric model when I bought my weed whacker, and I’m very glad I did. It’s clean, quiet, and almost fun to use.
