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.

All I'm carrying is a GrandMA2 console and a catalyst media server that feeds our Elation 9' x 14' video wall. Joel Reiff programmed a light show. Production manager and video director David Davidian gave him access to the web site "Video Blocks" to grab footage for the media server. Then they handed it to me.
