    Almost 24 years ago bassist Benny Rietveld ended his tenure with Miles Davis and made the move to join team Carlos Santana. At the time of the move it was unlikely Rietveld knew how Santana would reignite his own career, garner mass appeal on popular radio and clean up at the Grammys with the “Supernatural” project. Rietveld took a chance, put in almost a decade of commitment to Santana (prior to “Supernatural”) and now enjoys a career so diverse it… View this post

The award show featured live performances by some of the biggest stars in Latin music including Marc Anthony, Carlos… View this post

    Franklin Denham, Minister of Music at Highland Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has been conducting Singing Christmas Tree performances since 1985. The history of singing trees goes back to the outdoor presentations in 1933 at Belhaven College, Jackson, MS, which is considered the first and oldest outdoor Singing Christmas Tree event in America. At the time, indoor performances were rare, as it required a rather large church to accommodate this type of performance. All of the tree performances at Highland… View this post

    This article is provided by Gowing Associates.   I’m in the process of helping one of my churches transition from an analog mixer to a digital mixer. They were in need of more channels than their Allen & Heath 16-channel MixWiz with some outboard gear (front of house EQ, couple of compressors, effects unit) could provide. Based on the maximum number of channels that they anticipated needing over the next five years, I recommended the PreSonus StudioLive 24.4, one of… View this post

    Like many musicians turned recording engineers, Glenn Thomas began learning his craft on his own, long before setting foot in a “real” recording studio. He didn’t have a choice – growing up, the closest city with a professional studio was six hours away. From his early days of bouncing tracks on a cheap four-track cassette recorder, Thomas has progressed to become the owner of Newfoundland, Canada studio, ITuneAudio providing recording and production services for a wide variety of Canadian and… View this post

    Although the Theatre of Living Arts (TLA) was best known in previous decades as a host for art house films and campy touring Broadway shows like Little Shop of Horrors and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the TLA has steadily evolved into Philadelphia’s premiere small concert venue for edgy, up-and-coming artists. Owned and operated by concert promoter Live Nation, the intimate 1000-capacity club recently bumped up its production values with the addition of a new ARCS II loudspeaker system from… View this post
