Dismaland

Apparently Banksy and a few other artists are opening up an exhibit at an old abandoned seaside park in the UK. A spoof on Disneyland. Looks whacky. How long till the law suits happen I wonder? …See More

Just a bunch of Roadies

Posted on December 6, 2014 at 3:39pm 0 Comments

So there is group of roadies, led by the legendary Charlie Hernandez, who do a lot of good globally. Call themselves JABOR. They get food and medicine to countries that have been ravaged by natural disasters as well as good karma type stuff here in the states. Charlie recently wrote a letter that I would like to post here just to let you guys know what this cat is up to. Pretty phenomenal pay it forward type stuff.…

Race Track gigs

Posted on November 10, 2014 at 9:31am 0 Comments

In my career I have done concerts in all kinds of places. Minor league ball parks with stages towed behind tractors. State fairs where the stage was set on railroad tracks and moved into place. And then there's the circuit of race car events they seem to have every year. As I understand it, plenty of good old boy country acts play the Nascar circuit. Nascar is big time stock car racing I believe. Makes me think of the Dukes of Hazard. These races attract humongous crowds and I'm sure there…

clubbing

Posted on October 30, 2014 at 10:57am 2 Comments

     It’s not that often that I get to play some club gigs. Usually it’s because one of my acts is playing a benefit show for a worthy cause, or they just want an occasional break from an arena to do an intimate show. Seems to be the trend now with bands doing residency stays in Vegas or other hot spots. The exception is when a group has some backing and is willing to pay my fee. I long ago accepted the fact that money talks, and when it does, I listen.

    So for a quick…

Last night in Dallas

Posted on October 20, 2014 at 8:45am 1 Comment

I screwed up again last night. Broke the number one rule in our biz. I assumed something again. I assumed the front of house table at the House of Blues was set up sturdily. I didn't check it. Slayer, the house LD didn't check it. Nobody had ever checked it as it got used successfully every night. Til I get there of course.

    I'm carrying a video wall and mini-mac Catalyst media server. Using a Martin M1 console this run. I receive camera feeds via rf from the stage. I have various…

Nice see in ya

Posted on October 14, 2014 at 8:19pm 0 Comments

      One of the greatest things about our biz is the ability to run into the same people at various gigs in your life. I mean unexpectedly. Last month I ran into two guys I hadn't seen since the eighties, at the same venue. We caught up. No need to become Facebook buddies or anything, just saying hi.

    Last night I was in Boston for a quick one show affair at some club. I walk into a pub next door to get some chow and a beer before the show. 5 minutes later my buddy John Macleish…

Thank you! Huntington is a great town!

I was hoping to get some answers to some questions about lighting an MMA cage for my events:

I have some lighting questions for a live MMA event. I wanted to properly light the cage similar to how the pro events you see on TV but on a budget.

I'm looking into the tripar LED lights to light the cage. The cage is roughly 26'x26' but in shape of hexagon.

How many of the lights would be needed to light the cage? How high up should we go above the cage?

Thanks for the help!

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

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.

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.
