The story of Boarded Up Foundation begins with Louie Louie's Piano Bar, located in Deep Ellum of Dallas, TX. During the COVID pandemic, the business was devasted by mandated closures and they had to board up the windows to the bar. In order to not lay off their workers and make use of their stage, our founders felt the urge to do something for the fellow out-of-work musicians in the area. Thus, Boarded Up Foundation was born in order to provide these artists with access to quality live music video production, promotion, and preservation of their work. At the very beginning, everything we produced was done by the Louie Louie's staff; and we mean everything. We are lucky to have been able to expand our staff now to have people dedicated to our foundation. We now have social media technicians, editors, and more all focused on building us as a foundation and on providing the most we can for our artists. We continue our efforts now in order to provide new opportunities for independent artists in the future. We believe strongly in what we do and what we are able to provide to the music community, we hope you believe in it too and help us keep the music alive.
