Photos excluded from voting. All photos are prior to the “Great Hair Whacking of late 2009”.
ALSO, all photos were from my “Pre-YoYo” days.
Mixing a country band for a rodeo group social event in 2007:
Stage set for that show:
Mains and stage monitors are mine. Mics are all mine. All other gear is the band’s.
SacAnime Summer 2009, outdoor ampitheater, mixing 1 of three bands. Had a nasty fight with my wife the night before, slept in the truck near the venue. No shower, no shave, no food. Heck, probably no sleep!
Mixing various greaser rock bands for a car club car show in 2009:
Note: The back of the really big rack you may have trouble seeing, is loaded with I think 14 channels of 31-band EQ. It used to be 18 but I removed 2 units I never use and re-deployed them where they could be better utilized. The front is full of compressors, 2 31-band EQ’s, a BBE Sonic Maximizer and plenty of patch bays to handle the inserts.
(DJ Gear is NOT mine)
My mains, set up before a benefit concert I did for Katrina aid relief:
This is a somewhat rare FULL MAINS set-up. I don’t get to break out the full PA that often. Not that you can really see it, but the monitors on the stage are also mine.
Shot at Winter 2010 SacAnime:
VIc Mignona left the stage, wandered the room, NO FEEDBACK(I’m so awesome with the gain structure) as well a fantastic clarity and volume everywhere in the room. You can also see my video camera and one half of the mains in use. I mixed a band later that night. For TMCertified’s benefit, that’s a Shure SLX transmitter using a Beta 87A capsule that the guest is running around with.
ALSO for TMCertified’s benefit and drooling potential: The front side of my wireless rack:
4 AT 3000-series receivers.
4 Shure SLX series receivers
AT 1100 series VHF receiver on T3.
Not seen on back: Antenna distros and amplifiers
Also not seen: AT ATW-49 LPDA antennas.
The little 2-space rack on top has one of those previously mentioned MOVED EQ’s.
All shown gear is mine unless otherwise noted.
I’m waiting on photos from my staff photographer for 2011 season. I’m also still editing photos from other 2011 gigs, some of which I am in at the console. My problem is one of my crew, she took a LOT of good pictures and I’m having a very hard time narrowing it down. She wasn’t my staff photographer, but she still works for me on a regular basis. I’m trying to play catch-up on photos this weekend but it won’t be easy as more gigs rolled in!
If you want to cruise what I got so far:
Enjoy. I gotta get my Bill Cosby photo up soon!
