Those pining for the sound to be turned back on at Morgan Creek Grill will have to wait a little longer. The Grill has been granted permission by the City of Isle of Palms to conduct a test period for a new sound stage and system designed to limit the extent that noise that travels from the instruments of bands performing on the city-owned property next to the restaurant. However, due to the inclement weather, construction of the state of the art system was delayed.
Once in place however, the system will allow Morgan Creek Grill to control the sound levels of the musicians by having a sedentary sound system, instead of having portable amplifiers brought to their venue by the musicians.
“Upon completion of the stage and equipment installation, we will begin the actual test period using actual musicians of varying configurations while our sound engineer performs decibel readings from the same various locations on the Morgan Creek Property footprint, as well in the surrounding neighborhoods, from which we took our baseline readings on March 10,” manager Carla Pope said in an email newsletter. The expected start date of the testing is April 24.
