The Vegas Heat is on….And so are the Shows…..

So last Friday it finally topped 100 degrees outside here in Vegas……..set up the 3G Productions D&B Audio rig at the Mandalay Beach Pool Stage that evening in prep for the BOZ SCAGGS show for the following night…….

Saturday arrived and it topped out at 108 degrees during the BOZ SCAGGS Soundcheck…….later that evening BOZ SCAGGS put on a great show…….the Monitor Rig and the crew were a bunch of guys from Sound Image (Nashville and San Diego) including the FOH engineer with Steely Dan…..yet I, for the life of me, cannot remember his name………I have been on a bunch of shows on this rig with every digital console in the book, but when this guy showed up with an Analog Midas Heritage 3000 console, the first thing I noticed was how much better the rig sounded……….and at the end of the night I let him know and he thanked me for my words………he told me that every time he hears comments like mine from people, he feels justified, carrying the Big Analog desk around………and honestly….I know exactly how he feels…….the big analog desks just sound better than digital…….plain and simple…….

Tomorrow is INFOCOMM at the Convention Center here in Vegas……..one of my industry’s trade shows…….I will be on the exhibit floor all day networking with my peers and industry people and checking out the new toys……..I am sure its gonna be hot outside and i will have to park a mile away and spend a fortune to park close…….

Then late today……Only 104 degrees outside……..I got a call from Cory Harrington from PRG and was told to call Kevin over at Feelgood’s Nightclub here in Vegas…..I called him and left a message……….about an hour later, Kevin called me back and ask me if I was available this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday…….and strangly enough, I am………So tomorrow night I am going to meet with Kevin at the club and get the low down as to what they need me for this coming weekend……but it sounds like I might be doing some work with them this weekend and possible alot more in the future…….I do know that TAPROOT is playing there at Feelgood’s the coming Saturday night…….
