More of the same in March……

I started off again this month with more corporate non-sense in area Hotel Ballrooms and convention spaces, mainly flyng hangs of speakers for whatever event that week was either moving in or out…….ZZZZZZZ………

March 11

Got a last minute call earlier in the week to work the 311 Show on 3/11 here in Vegas………The show started at 7PM and ended at 12:30 AM…….311 for 5 1/2 hours……..sold out marathon gig………..And then we started loading it out………..Left the Mandalay Bay Events Center at 7:30 AM…….Very tired……..

March 13 – 14

For the weekend I was back at The Orleans Showroom where, even though I am not employed at The Orleans, I have become their regular Monitor Engineer for most of their shows since last August or so……..this particular weekend it was two nights with Dennis DeYoung (former front man and songwriter with the classic rock band STYX)……….Dennis still has his voice and the band was tight and it was great hearing all those great STYX Classics………The entire band was on in-ear monitors except Dennis himself…….we had a few issues with the Sennheiser EW 300 Ear packs, but once we sorted it out, we were good to go and the shows went off without incident……the crowd loved it and so did I………..Dennis is a perfectionist which I respect, but at the same time he is a bit of a strange bird……
