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…Continue
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.

She's a beauty, with 4 or 5 electrics loaded with ellipsoidals and a scattering of pars. I mix and matched fixtures with gels until I had a totally unsymetrical look…Continue
For the next two months I will be traveling the back roads of the US. Playing small towns and making a light show out of whatever lighting fixtures I can find. 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.
