    live sound international
    Ike Zimbel 04/29/16 11:34 AM,
    In 1980 I was working for a band, doing sound…and lights…and some backline…from front of house. During the 11 months I was with them, the band completed a successful showcase, landed a record deal, released its first album, and did a national tour of bars and universities. Truck and van deal…did I mention that I also drove the truck? On this particular night, pre record deal, we were part of the way through a week-long gig at a Toronto bar… View this story

    In early 1986 I got a call to see if I was available to mix an up-and-coming young band for a gig at the local art college. If it worked out, there were more gigs to come.
