Greetings and welcome to my new ProSoundWeb Blog. My name is Dave Dermont. Some of you may know me as one of the moderators on the ProSoundWeb forums and author of the occasional article in Live Sound International.
This is a blog of the day-to-day trials and tribulations of someone working in the sound reinforcement jungle of night clubs, street fairs, festivals, and corner bars, with an occasional peek at some higher profile gigs from the viewpoint of a lowly stage hand or loader. Yep, I run the gamut from low-paid labor to low-paid master of all I survey.
Don’t look here for stories of world travel with famous people. It’ll be more like stories about people who are semi-famous, used to be famous, or are about to be famous. I will not to drop names just to show everyone how cool I am, but I suspect I might fail at this from time to time. I will not hesitate to let everyone know what festivals have the best corn dogs.
It’s also a safe bet that I’ll go off on an occasional rant.
