There are a lot of things that go into being a professional musician. Let’s put aside the years of tedious practice, striving to be the best at an art form that so few people appreciate. So many people who are inferior both musically and technically than you are at your very same instrument are making millions off it yet you are struggling. It doesn’t seem fair. And it isn’t fair. But aside from all of that, what else goes into being a musician? There is the logistics side of things and when it comes to logistics, one of the most important things you can consider is how to get around town for your gigs, both in town and out of town. You’ll need a car that is great for both. So what’s the best cars for your musician life style?
The Honda Fit is one of the more versatile cars that we can think of that a busy gigging musician should consider. First of all, it’s a hatch back so you can get your upright bass, or your drum kit, or you 1000 pound guitar amp in there no problem. That alone makes it a fantastic car for anyone and everyone. Add into that the fact that it’s a Honda, so it’s got reliability going for it as well. Also, the Fit is a nice looking car, so if you roll up to the venue, no one’s going to mock you for having a gramma car or some sort of vehicle that will repel the ladies away. The Honda Fit is a fantastic choice and we couldn’t recommend it more highly.
Then there’s the ladies favorite, the Honda Odyssey. What makes the Odyssey such a great car for the musician? It’s a comfortable mini van for one and you also know it’ll be able to hold all the gear you could ever want unless you have some sort of elaborate light show, but by then you’ll be on a fleet of buses anyway. Also, if you’re going to do some runs outside of town, the Odyssey can house all the gear and the band, and also not kill you at the fuel pumps. This is truly the best car for someone who is going to take this career seriously. Also, again, like the Fit, it’s a Honda, so you will know it’s gonna last and get you there without issue.
I know what you’re thinking: you wouldn’t be caught dead in a cube. And you’re not wrong, these things are top tier ugly. But when we first saw the Cube at Nissan Fontana after our initial laughing in hysterics, we took it for a drive and were pretty impressed with not only its comfort, but also how well it handles on the highway. It’s amazing that they would design this vehicle to be so horrendously unattractive, but because of that, its cost is lower than what might otherwise be and so you will get those savings. Take a test drive today at Downtown Nissan.
