Nook Schoenfeld has not received any gifts yet
At first glance one may think this blog is about dressing nice for a corporate event. Or stepping up your attire with yer "Sunday go to meeting" clothes that the Beverly Hills Clampetts spoke of. But no, I'm talking about the problems many of us face by not packing appropriately for say, a month at a time. When you know you are going to multiple gigs before you will arrive back home.
This month has found me on both coasts of Canada as well as Miami and San Diego. It's a…Continue
So it's been a weird last 2 weeks. I work with bands who listen to themselves via a monitor mix in their ear phones constantly. And I don't.
