It was a July 8 truck tip and the day of the show was July 10. The temperature hovered around 100 degrees for the duration. We erected the monster in the left center field bleachers over the seats where Babe Ruth and Nellie Fox used to tear the hides off of well-greased… View this story

    Getting the call to mix monitors for Jessica Simpson earlier this year was my surprise birthday gift from FOH engineer Monty Lee Wilkes. Following a cross-country flight early the next morning, I was programming a Yamaha PM5D at Center Staging in Burbank for the debut performance of Jessica’s country music show at Country Thunder that weekend in Wisconsin. Jessica is as beautiful inside as out, a hard-working girl from Texas whose gift to audio is a dedication to her craft… View this story

     Latin American Idol

On the surface, one might easily construe that the only difference between the shows is that… View this story
