Played at a new venue. Big, beautiful outdoor amphitheater type stage.
Huge crowd that shared the love. A wonderful staff and crew. All made for an unforgettable gig.

The following pics and short video snippet were all shared with us from fans.
After all these years, I still get the goosebumps.
I know for the touring pros here this is old hat, but to this day job geek, nothing beats this!

Soundcheck


Look at all those people out there


They like us smile

Lotta acreage on that stage! The video clip sounds very good. Did you lower the key? Wouldn't blame you at all if you did, just curious.

When we have a weekend of 3 shows in a row, we usually go down 1/2 step.

That and our lead singer had a spinal fusion surgery a couple months ago, in which they went in thru the front and had to push his vocal chords over out of the way.... scary stuff.

Side note: My Mainstage and GigPerformer concerts each have two versions. One in A440, and the other in A415.3

Before a show, we ask the singer how he's doing, and I load the appropriate concert file.

Thank you!! It was good seeing you Friday. The stage in Mansfield is obviously much better than the "bounce house" we played on in Plano smile

Looks like a great venue and the FOH had you right where you’re suppose to be.
Sounded great.

Usually you never hear bass but because the vocals were on top, with the snare, keys and guitar right under I’m assuming the chap had kick and bass dialed in too.
These ipads and phones do a decent job of 260 to 10k.

I was surprised how well this person's iPhone captured the audio.

The sound crew was first rate.

Yep, both kicks, snare, etc.. dialed in perfectly. As well as the bass.

Here's my drummist


Thank you very much!

Sounds great as always!

You know, if you were still using the Kronos you could just save 2 identical setlists with one tuned down wave

I followed your migration and have taken interest. I especially think it makes a ton of sense for gigs where you have to travel, in a previous band we had an opportunity to play some gigs in Vegas, but with as tied as I was to my hardware rig, not to mention our drummer's electric drums and our IEM system (early in the years of such things), we declined. That would be so much more feasible with something like a mainstage rig and modern digital mixers.

This is where it is really nice. On some very long distance gigs that provide backline, I just bring my Macbook, Audio 4+ and FC7 pedal in my backpack.

Show up, plug in, and go.

I have pretty much moved all the way over to Gigperformer now. Especially since I rely so heavily on non-Mainstage sounds.

I've been lucky enough to see David's band twice and they kicked ass both times. I believe they have an upcoming show on July 11 at one of those venues and I'm hoping to catch them again. thu

You cool with that, David? cool


The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!

Before leaving for our last tour, I was thinking about how stupid of an endeavour it was on paper. On paper being the operative words. Glad to see you guys are still kicking ass, David. thu
