Xa u-Eric Lochtefeld wayeneminyaka engama-20 ubudala, wayeneBhodi yakhe yoMbono.



Yayizaliswe ziifoto zeendawo ezintle zobugcisa bemidlalo yeqonga, njengeFox Theatre eRedwood City.

Ukusukela ndisengumntwana, bendiyifuna into enje, watsho emnxebeni ngoMvulo ngokuhlwa ngenye yeentsuku ezili-14 esebenza ukuze afumane le ndawo yena nenkosikazi yakhe uLori ngoku abaqhuba - iFox Theatre eRedwood. IsiXeko — sikulungele ukuvulwa kwakhona.





Yiyiphi eya kuyenza ngoJulayi 23, kwinto ebizwa ngokuba yiLochtefeld ngokuvula okuthambileyo, ngexesha lePolisa yeMisebenzi yeLigi yezoBugcisa kunye neBlues Festival.

Umthendeleko wenziwa ngaphesheya kwesitrato ukusuka kwiFox, eCourthouse Square.



Ibhendi yeCafé R&B iya kuvula umnyhadala weblues ngo-6 p.m. Xa elo bhendi lisonga, abalandeli banokunqumla kwi-Broadway ukuya kwiClub Fox (i-marquee yayo isayibiza ngokuba yiFox encinci), apho iMadison Blues Band ehlangeneyo kunye nondwendwe uKenny Neal iya kusungula elo gumbi libuyele kwishishini lentsebenzo ephilayo nge-8 p.m. (Umthendeleko uyaqhubeka ngoMgqibelo kusasa eCourthouse Square.)

Kufuneka yenze ukuvulwa kwakhona okukhulu.



IFox yaba mnyama ngoDisemba 2009, emva kokuba abanini uJohn Anagnostou noMike Monte bengene kwiingxaki zamatyala kunye nokuvalwa.

Yipropathi enkulu - i-24,000 yeenyawo zesikwere sendawo yethiyetha eyahlulahlulwe phakathi kweFox Theatre kunye neClub Fox, kunye ne-9,700 yeenyawo zesikwere se-ofisi kunye ne-6,000 yeenyawo ze-square yendawo yokuthengisa - kunye nenye yamatye anqabileyo edolophu yaseRedwood City.



Yakhelwe ngo-1928, iFox yasekuqaleni yindawo yeqonga entle, edweliswe kwiRejista yeSizwe yeeNdawo zeMbali. U-Anagnostou no-Monte babeka imali eninzi ekuphuculeni iindawo zokusebenza kwiminyaka eyi-10 ababenayo isakhiwo.

Elo qela lelo latshintsha indawo eyayifudula ithengisa iincwadi yaba yiFox encinci, eyaba yindawo ethandwa kakhulu ngabalandeli bomculo kunye neemvumi.



Kodwa njengoko ukudodobala kwezoqoqosho kwakuhambela phambili, kwaneFox edumileyo yayitsala nzima kancinci, ngokwemali, kwaye iFox enkulu yayitsala nzima kakhulu, njengoko abanini babalekela kwityala kunye nokuhamba kwemali, kwaye ayikwazanga ukuza nentlama. ngenisa iintlobo zezenzo ezinokuzalisa ezo zihlalo ze-1,500. IFox enkulu yaba mnyama kuqala, ngempumelelo.

Umahluko phakathi kwento eyenziwa ngu-Anagnostou no-Monte kwaye oko kubonakala ngathi i-Lochtefelds ibonakala iyenza kukusetyenziswa kweofisi kunye nendawo yokuthengisa. UAnagnostou, exakeke kukubuyiselwa kweFox kwaye ebethwa kukudodobala koqoqosho, wayenobunzima bokufumana abaqeshi.

Kodwa iiplanethi zibonakala zihambelana neLochtefeld.

U-Lochtefeld, onomsebenzi osebenzayo kakhulu, kuquka ukusebenza njengomnye wabagqugquzeli bokuqala beVans Warped Tour, uqhuba iYunivesithi yeDreams, eyinkonzo yokubeka i-internship, kunye neeofisi eNew York, e-Barcelona - kunye ne-Redwood City.

Ukuqeshisa kwakhe indawo yeofisi, eyayixabisa i-$ 250,000 ngonyaka kwisakhiwo esingekude neFox, yayiza kuhlaziywa malunga nexesha elifanayo lokuba esidlangalaleni ukuba u-Anagnostou no-Monte basengxakini.

Iifowuni zenziwa, i-deal-wheels yajika, kwaye xa uLochtefeld kunye nomfazi wakhe uLori - i-real-estate kunye ne-inshurensi ye-inshurensi - bathatha ulawulo lweFox, ngokukhawuleza baqesha isiqingatha seofisi kwiYunivesithi yeDreams. Indawo eseleyo yeeofisi iqeshiselwe iMakara, inkampani esebenza ngefu.

Indawo yokuthengisa ikwimarike ngoku, utshilo uLochtefeld. I-50 pesenti yayo iqeshiwe, enye i-50 pesenti iyafumaneka.

Loo ndawo - ivenkile entle phambi kweFox kwaye ngoku iya kuba yiofisi kaLori Lochtefeld kunye neofisi yolawulo lwemveliso yeFox - esetyenziselwa ukuba iphepha lifakwe kwiifestile zalo.

Ngoku iifestile zicocekile, yaye ngaphakathi kunuka udaka nepeyinti entsha. Kukho iintambo zombane ezintsha, kwaye inxalenye yenkqubo yokupholisa umoya ingaphakathi yaye ilungele ukugqitywa.

Iofisi kunye nerenti yokuthengisa yenza iintlawulo ze-Lochtefelds ze-mortgage kwipropati, enika i-modicum yokuthuthuzela.

Lo ngumdlalo wezindlu nezindlu njengoko ingumdlalo wokuzonwabisa, utshilo uLochtefeld. Akukho nokubakho ngaphandle komnye. Ndiwabalekisile amanani.

Ke, uLochtefeld - okhuthaze iikonsathi ezingama-200 - udibanise iqela elomeleleyo lokwenza iFox kunye neClub Fox iindawo zokuzonwabisa ezisebenzayo.

Sisanda kuqesha umphathi wendawo, utshilo. UTom Collins. Wayekunye neLive Nation, ekunye neMiami Arena. Umfana wethu wemveliso, uKerry Nicholson, wayengumfana wemveliso kwiVans Warped Tour iminyaka eyi-12. Ndimgqala njengoyena mntu ubalaseleyo ehlabathini. Ndamenza ukuba achithe inyanga ehlola indawo, emva koko ndamnika indawo ye-equity. Umntakwethu, uCharley Lochtefeld, uza kujongana necala lokubhukisha, ejongene nabakhuthazi.

Abalandeli beFox encinci baya kufumana utshintsho oluninzi olubalulekileyo xa bewela kwiClub Fox, elungiswayo ngeliso lokuguquguquka.

NgoLwesithathu, ngelixa i-Lochtefelds yayibonisa iDaily News ngeenxa zonke, inqanaba elidala lokutyhala kunye ne-backdrop yayingasekho. Umqolo ongasemva ungaphandle ungqinwe ngumlilo, kwaye uya kuxhonywa kwi-truss entsha yoxande eyenzelwe ukuvumela izenzo ezahlukeneyo zibe bhetyebhetye ngakumbi.

Iqonga eliqengqelekayo liya kusetyenziselwa eminye imiboniso, kodwa ligoqwe kwaye lifihlwe kwindawo esecaleni ukwenzela izenzo zomculo ezisondele ngakumbi. Ibar iye yahlengahlengiswa ukuze isuse nayiphi na i-kinks kuloo mbhobho wengeniso ethile. Kwaye ikona ye-lobby eyayikade isebenza njengendawo apho iimvumi zinokuthengisa iiCD zazo kwaye zisayine ii-autographs ziya kusetyenziselwa ukunika ukutya.

Akunjalo ukuba i-Lochtefelds iceba ukuya kwindawo yokutyela biz.

Sibathanda kakhulu abahlobo bethu bendawo yokutyela eRedwood City, utshilo. Asifuni kungenelela kwishishini labo.

Ke isicwangciso kukumema abathengisi bendawo ukuba basebenzise ikona elungele ukutya ngohlobo lokujikeleza. Inqwelo yokutya ephathwayo iyenziwa ngokwezifiso ukunceda kuloo nto.

Abantu kufuneka batye xa besela, utshilo uLochtefeld. Badinga igrisi kuzo xa besela.

Kwaye, ukongeza kwinkqubo entsha yesandi esitsha - i-Little Fox ngaphambili yayineyona ndlela ilungileyo yesandi kwi-Bay Area ngenxa yobukhulu bayo - Iqela le-Lochtefeld lifaka ii-TV ezisibhozo ze-plasma kunye ne-jumbo yevidiyo yesikrini eludongeni emva kweqonga, ngokufanelekileyo ukuguqula. ukudibanisa kwibar yezemidlalo xa ingeyondawo yomculo.

Ukuba ufuna ukubukela iNdebe yeHlabathi, kunye nemidlalo eyahlukeneyo kwiTV nganye, utshilo uLochtefeld. Iya kuba yindawo entle yokusela ibhiya ngoMgqibelo.

Yiyiphi, ngandlela-thile, izisa enye yeendlela eziphambili zeqela le-Lochtefeld: Ukugcina iingcango zivulekile, kunye nokufumana iibhuthi ezihlalweni.

NgoLwesithathu, uLochtefeld emi kunye nomfazi uLori phambi kweqonga elikhulu leFox enkulu, wabonisa ukuba isiqubulo sabo sithi Akukho mntu uphumeleleyo xa iingcango zivaliwe.

IFox enkulu, kunyaka wayo wokugqibela, yayimnyama rhoqo, njengoko abantu babeyeka ukuya kwimiboniso.

Yayingeyonto nje iFox complex eye yangena enkathazweni. Iiklabhu kulo lonke elaseBay Area ziye zangena ezingxakini ngokuncipha kweerisithi ekudodobaleni koqoqosho. Iiklabhu ezininzi zavalwa, hayi iiFoxes kuphela.

Emva kokuvulwa kwayo okuthambileyo nge-23 kaJulayi, iClub Fox iya kuba nokuvulwa rhoqo kweentsuku ezine okanye ezintlanu ngeveki ukuqala ngo-Agasti, ngethemba lokubonelela ngomculo ophilayo kwaye mhlawumbi nomdlalo ohlekisayo ubusuku obuthandathu ngeveki, kwaye kulindeleke ukuba ivulwe kwangethuba. abalandeli bezemidlalo kunye nabanye abantu abafuna indawo yokusela.

KwiFox enkulu, utshilo uLochtefeld, iqhinga lethu kukuba iingcango zivuleke kakhulu esinokuthi sikwenze ngonyaka.

Asikwazi ukubeka nje uhlobo olulodwa lokuzonwabisa okuphilayo, awukwazi ukuyibeka kwibhokisi. Sifuna ukuqhuba iikonsathi, kodwa nethiyetha yomculo, iminyhadala yenkcubeko, iminyhadala yasekuhlaleni, iminyhadala yabucala. Uluhlu olubanzi lokubhukisha.

Kodwa, uLochtefeld - indoda enamava eminyaka yokunyusa ikhonsathi - ayinamdla wokuya kukhuphiswano kunye nokuthandwa kweLive Nation, elawula i-Shoreline Amphitheatre kunye nezinye iindawo ezininzi, okanye Enye iPlanethi yokuzonwabisa, eqhuba i-Oakland's Fox Theatre.

Endaweni yoko, ufuna abagqugquzeli kunye nabaququzeleli beminyhadala bazi malunga neRedwood City's Fox Theatre, kwaye baqale ukuyibhukisha.

NgoLwesithathu, kwacaca ukuba usemninzi umsebenzi ekufuneka wenziwe kwiFox enkulu, leyo iLochtefelds ilindele ukuyivula ngoSeptemba. Eminye imisitho sele ibhukisiwe.

Imiqolo emininzi yokuqala yezihlalo zethiyetha yayihambile xa iLochtefelds ithatha indawo - ikwiattic - kwaye ithemba leLochtefelds, lixhomekeke kwiimvume, kukubeka umgangatho omtsha kuloo ndawo oya kuvumela ukusetyenziswa okuninzi. Umbono kukwenza indawo ibe nomtsalane kwimisitho emincinci enabantu abangama-200 okanye abangama-300 okanye imisitho emikhulu enabantu abaninzi njenge-1,500. Kodwa uninzi lwesakhiwo sikwimo entle, sinamagumbi okunxiba aphangaleleyo nacocekileyo, ukukhanya okuninzi kunye neetrasi ezibukekayo kunye nebhari entle, enkulu phambi kwegumbi lokwamkela iindwendwe.

Singabanini-mhlaba kuqala, watsho. Okwesibini, sikhona ukudala imeko-bume eyenza iFox ibe lukhetho oluhle lokubeka umcimbi wabo. Xa abantu becinga ngesiganeko - abantu abayi-1,500 ukuya kumakhulu amabini okanye amathathu, uluhlu olubanzi lweziganeko - sifuna ukuba bacinge ngeFox.
