Now they are performing with the DL32R digital mixer from Mackie. “The old mixer was a workhorse,” recalls guitarist/vocalist Rick McClanahan, “and it had effects, but it was big and heavy. We use powered… View this post

    Many of us are masters at the logistical side of loading and unloading trucks and moving gear. Correctly positioning and tuning the PA for the best coverage is almost second nature. After years of doing our jobs, we’ve become decent (or better) mixers, getting musicians to sound great in the PA.

    Henley Festival is an annual, five-day experience that celebrates the best of international and UK music, art, food and comedy in a quintessentially British location.

In 2016, the Festival… View this post

    Greenwich High School’s first class graduated back in 1898 but its current 54-acre campus dates to 1970. With approximately 2,650 students, more than 1,400 of whom are enrolled in music and theater courses, it had far outgrown its old auditorium, which also suffered from poor acoustics, poor sightlines, and other shortcomings. As part of a massive expansion project begun in July 2013, the school constructed a new Performing Arts Center featuring a 1,325-seat, 35,000-foot auditorium with a proper stage, orchestra… View this post
