    It’s hard to believe that just a few short years ago the entire personal mixing market belonged to just a few companies, replaced by a seemingly ever-expanding landscape of these systems. The concept is simple: feed some number of inputs, typically16 to 40, to the system’s input module, connect the personal mixers to the distribution hub, and let the musicians put together their own monitor mix. Ideally, each musician gets what they want without the need for a monitor engineer.… View this post

    Celebrating a nearly 100-year history as a venue for live entertainment, the Varsity Theater is a Minneapolis landmark. Originally built for vaudeville in 1915, the theater featured a compact auditorium that inspired the nickname “The Dinky” and later led to the surrounding neighborhood – today a hive of restaurants, bars and venues on the north side of the University of Minnesota’s East Bank campus – being dubbed “Dinkytown.” The venue was upgraded and expanded in the 1930s into a 900-seat… View this post

    The term “mega church” might have been coined to describe Tulsa, Oklahoma’s 12,000-member Church on the Move. At services, the church’s message is delivered on a scale that rivals major rock concerts, with full-scale lighting, sound and video in a sanctuary that’s bigger than many top music venues. The rock concert analogy is appropriate in more ways than one – the church’s audio and video staff rent rather than purchase most of their lighting, giving them access to the latest… View this post
