Day 2 Show 1 Jazz Fest

New Orleans Jazz Fest 
It's an 'in and out' gig a bit regrettably as New Orleans is always a fun adventure of sights, sounds and delicious food.‎ I did arrive in time to hang with the Pearl Jam crew for a bit as our load in overlapped their out. It's been a while such a great camp.

It's not often I see a stage so clean, notice anything missing? 

Like the entire lighting system. New Orleans version of Warped tour, daytime shows, sunlit and work lights. Ha! In the ongoing battle with Scott the Lampi, we can rock a fun show with no lights, wonder how a lit show with no sound would go over.

Starting up a new tour cycle has its challenges. In my mind, I envision the sound setup just progressing from where it left off some two or so years ago. In reality the multitude of small and large changes converge into clusters of variables and unknowns. Plus me being rusty and the abrupt change of focus from 'at my house' to 'front of house' has me relearing all those nuances that had become second nature.

Not only was this the first show but also first time mixing on a Clair Cohesion PA as well. A variable I would have rather done without as I much prefer a familiar system, especially on the front end of a tour. The crew was good, pretty straight forward and everything functioned as it should, Ran stereo mains and stereo subs on an aux. The show was fun, especially cool ‎was the jam finale with 3 of The Meters.

  1. Great to have you blogging again!!! Love all the behind the scenes stuff!

    So do people still call it "the PA"? Is Public Address system still a valid name? Can you think of a better name or abbreviation that still sounds as cool and complicated as "PA"? :)

  4. The perfect event starts with an extraordinary location. Whether you are dreaming of a grand entrance on a mountaintop vineyard estate, or an intimate gathering of family and friends at a seaside villa, good managers, like those at these event venues Chicago are able to turn that dream into an extraordinary wedding.
