Actual performance space bookings

filming a music video

I wanted to look into filming a music video at this location. First off, is the space available at the above date and time frame, the 22nd, 12pm - 5pm? And secondly, in the space, do you have a ladder that can reach the ceiling if I was looking to mount two lights to the wooden rafters to shine down as spotlights on the performers? I look forward to hearing back from you!

performance set recording

Music duo with DJ and frontman recording a performance set or two. We need the pro video recording - ideally we would like it to have a "boiler room" style vibe. We need the raw video footage but also if an edit is put together we would take that too. We want the audio recorded separately through the mixer and not a "live" mic recording."

baby shower party with a DJ

I'm looking for a space to throw a baby shower. Its home girl's party, they are hoping to maybe have a friends DJ/ perform throughout and there might be a catering, but it should be pretty chill. Does that sound doable?
