History of Durango Music

Durango Music was originally founded by Nathan Hammond as a form of Covid-19 relief for the Four Corners community. When the pandemic hit and closed down most of the businesses, the entertainment sector was one that was hit first and hardest. When the restaurants and other establishments were forced to either close or convert to delivery and curbside, it killed all the concerts and shows. Add to it the restrictions on number of people allowed to congregate and it made it impossible to host any kind of show.

With the founding of Durango Music, it was possible to at least provide a couple of remote jobs to the team put together to build and operate the site. Through the new venture, services could be provided to local musicians and venues. Eventually new revenue streams could be offered as well. Revenue streams that were remote in nature, therefore more resistant to the impacts that covid-19 had on the community, our nation and the world.

As of writing this, Durango Music is less than two weeks old, so it’s really hard to even call this “history”, but so far it’s the most comprehensive backstory we can tell. Only the future knows how long this pandemic will last. The same holds true for what the future holds for this venture, as well as our community.
