Various light fixtures

Posted by Nook Schoenfeld on September 21, 2014 at 5:29pm 0 Comments

I think the coolest thing about traveling on a tour using just local production, is that you get to use all sorts of fixtures. My GrandMA console imports fixtures daily as I need them. Within 1 month I have used 60 different fixtures. From moving heads to star drops to every blinking LED - I have used a lot of stuff. Some of it is good, some garbage. But if it emits light, it has some value right?

    Well maybe not. I played a theater last night that had a dozen Clay Paky super scan…


Telluride and overcoming obstacles

Posted by Nook Schoenfeld on September 15, 2014 at 9:29am 0 Comments

It was nice to roll through the lovely town of Telluride, Colorado this weekend. They have an annual Blues and Brews festival in this hidden little valley town and I was fortunate to play it. The stage was small, the catering a little different than normal, but the niceness of everyone involved in this venue just made for a nice day.

TMS out of Omaha supplied a couple trusses of movers and some lekos, I hooked my GrandMA up and cloned and focused in an hour. My band was playing during…

                                                                      Hello California!

        I have finally made my cross country move from Orlando, FL to Anaheim, CA. I'm sorry it's been so long, but life has been hectic. I did get the transfer from Disney World to DisneyLand, but not from full time to full time ( they don't automatically give that to you ) I moved to California for better job opportunities and THE WEATHER! I know this makes me sound like an old person, but I…


Small town lighting and knock off fixtures.

Posted by Nook Schoenfeld on September 1, 2014 at 10:37am 0 Comments

So I strolled thru a string of wineries last week. Nothing overall exciting. Generic gigs I like to call them. Though I do enjoy playing the old Masson Winery out in Saratoga, California. It's indeed one of those gigs that is difficult to get your gear into, But it is great once you shoehorn it all in. The lights are hung from a metal structure which cantilevers off the front face of what looks to be an old monastery. The gig is nestled into some foothills that overlook all of San Jose. The…


Jackpot Nv

         As the song goes, "I've been everywhere man, I've been everywhere." I can actually say that now. I had never heard of this town and for good reason. Barely 1000 people live here. So why is there a town here at all and a more valid question was why was i here to do a rock show?

        Thank Goodness for the internet. I google the place and find a small town on the Nevada/Idaho border. A quick summary tells me what I need to know. Back in the middle of the last century there…
