Pleasant Home Policies

  • Minimally amplified music is allowed outdoors on the front porch. Amplified music indoors will need to be discussed and approved by the Pleasant Home Manager in an effort to preserve the stained glass throughout the house. No sub woofers will be allowed indoors or outdoors on the front porch.
  • As Pleasant Home is located in a residential neighborhood, reasonable amplified music is allowed outside on the porch for events on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Outdoor music for events on Friday, Saturday, and holiday weekend Sundays must end at 10:00 p.m. An acceptable decibel level guideline ranges from 65-80db depending upon bass levels and a sound check will be required before the event and then checked throughout the event.
  • Minimal amplified music will be allowed outdoors for events on Sunday. Outdoor music for events on Sunday must end at 9:00 p.m. except for holiday Sundays.
  • Pleasant Home management retains the right to control volume. Please keep sound to suggested levels.
  • Pleasant Home has a Sonos speaker system located in the house with capacity to move specific speakers outdoors. Pleasant Home staff is responsible for moving Pleasant Home equipment.

Equipment Setup

  • All items must be hand carried into the house. There is no elevator and no hand trucks are allowed. Unloading can be done in the driveway just north of the front porch or in the bus parking spot in front of the house, however musicians and DJs need to then find appropriate parking.
  • Equipment set-up is allowed only during the two hour set-up of an event. The surrounding park is not open for dancing as it is a public space. Prior to the final walk thru, please notify your client of any tables, chairs, or linens you will need.
  • Any special lighting, props, or set-up must be approved by the Pleasant Home Manager, and must be removed at the conclusion of the event. Fog machines are not allowed.
  • Pleasant Home Management retains the right to end the music and ask the DJ/Musicians to vacate the property should any of these limitations be violated.
