My Internship at the Bomb Factory

6.1.17 bdeleon

Over time I have worked in a lot of different music venues, with a lot of different people, but none of those experiences can match my escapades at the Bomb Factory. When I first began looking for my final college internship I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go; all I knew was that I wanted to be involved with music. Thankfully, a dear friend of mine and previous mentee told me about the opportunities at the Bomb Factory and the rest was history.

After interning at a few places, you learn quickly each internship is different — this one was more than the typical coffee runner kind of gig, interning at the Bomb Factory gave me the chance to work alongside experienced professionals. I was given the freedom to create and learn the ropes all at the same time. I was able to bring what I knew to the table, whilst still learning in the process.

Overall, I’ve been able to become a part of a team that works extremely hard day in and day out to achieve the impossible. With a venue that can accommodate up to 4,300 fans, in a state-of-the-art, 50,000 square foot venue located in the heart of Dallas’ historic Deep Ellum, you can gather from those numbers alone that running a show like this isn’t a one-man job.

Like most industries, the music business has become a high sought after career, but beyond the glitz and glam, there is a hard working team at the core running the show as hidden figures, that I was genuinely welcomed to be a part of. Thanks, Bomb Squad!
