Speaking of creative -I’ll be hosting a guitar question/answer session on Saturdays in April in Wakefield MA at Onset Music (if you’re a guitar player and we haven’t met with guns in hand).
Email ONSET for details. It’ll be laid back, casual, and creative.
The sound tech or “soundman” is simultaneously the most underrated and most important job in the live music setting. Sonically, they make or break you. They are “The” additional unseen member of the band always working towards, always adjusting for, the perfect mix for your ears.
I’d like to extend personal thanks to all of the great sound techs that we work with. We cherish you.
