"I hear ya. I had to replace a Multi-touch in a MA2 Light this year and it cost $2800 for a reburb. A new one was $4k. I had to send it to ACT for repair. They won't let me do it myself."

Mike Rock commented on Nook Schoenfeld's blog post Kiss Light rig
"SGPS is handling the rigging and automation and Christie is dealing with the lights. Each leg is controlled by two winches and the head is eight, plus two for the horns or antennas, and the tail is four. Think of it as a steam punk marionette puppet."

Telluride and overcoming obstacles

Posted 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…

Small town lighting and knock off fixtures.

Posted 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…

         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…

More towns I've never seen pt2

Woke up in Pueblo, Co. last week. Went for a walk down historic old main street while the town slept in. Beautiful town and for some reason, I've never gigged here. It has a great facility called Memorial Hall. Built around the turn of the 1900's it had just finished being refurbished to it's grand original state. 

     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…

   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. 

      I found…

A dealer told me they were getting damaged in shipping. Makes you wonder how they hold up inside a console that bounces down the road in a truck continually. Other than that I haven't had any problems other than a couple small bugs.

I wish we could take the FX engine from a Hog and stick it in an MA. You'd have the perfect console! lol

Hi Nook, Bummer were going to miss ya in Detroit this time around. Unfortunately I'm here in Michigan doing shows, so no warm climate in my near future. Travel Safe and see ya soon, Joe

Yeah, spent almost three years to heal up from losing Sallie, and stayed out of the biz.

New shows so show up, but always out of the blue, and tight notice. I still keep my cell phone handy for folks who are using say a Hog!1000. Man, with the right grouping I could make the thing really sing. I saw Tom McKeown's band a week or so ago. Great unplugged type style. Six people is a tall order, and he was cool with my production notes.

Indeed it is Bill Strawn from Sac/Branson and beyond :) As I recall the nickname, garnered during our stint with the Steve Winwood tour, was "The Hub".
Drop me a line at hedlite@msn.com and let's catch up. Lots to tell :)
