    This summer, on the Florence date of Sting’s marathon “Back to Bass” tour (the tour originally started in 2011, coinciding with the release of two compilation albums commemorating the 25th anniversary of his solo career), the artist and his band performed at the city’s Cascine Park.

    Audio Flair provides sound reinforcement services in the central coast area of California. Mike Bacciarini founded the company in 2004 with an Allen & Heath GL2200 analog mixer. Then, in 2015, he purchased a Qu-24 digital mixer with an AR2412 AudioRack. “I love Allen & Heath,” he said. “They make great sounding, reliable gear. And, now, with the Qu-24, I don’t need to carry around a 120-foot, multi-channel analog snake and a signal-processing rack. I can do most shows with… View this post

    With ten Grammy wins, including Best Engineered Album for The Raconteurs Consolers of the Lonely and scores of platinum and gold albums, Joe Chiccarelli has made good on the famous opportunity Frank Zappa gave him during the recording of “Sheik Yerbouti” – among Zappa’s best-selling albums ever.

Since then, Chiccarelli has had the opportunity to work with the biggest and best artists in… View this post

    This article is provided by Church On The Move.   It goes without saying that I consider drums to be the most important part of most current rock-oriented music. Starting out my career as a drummer, I pay a considerable amount of attention to the specific details of drums and cymbals and the individual technique of the drummer.

    Two years ago, a catchy little pop ditty titled “All About That Bass” hit the Internet and radio waves. Although some might have assumed a quick, one-hit-wonder-fueled-by-YouTube ride for writer and singer Meghan Trainor, the video for that song has amassed a staggering 1.6 billion YouTube views and Trainor now has six top 15 Billboard Hot 100 hits and a 2016 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Monitor mix engineer Tony Luna has been with her since her first tour… View this post
