what's with all these $1000/week gigs advertised on this site? 172 Replies

I don't get it, these kind of weekly rates haven't been the norm since the early 90s... do people actually think they can get half decent and experienced crew at those rates? Does this mean that sites like this are unfortunately (and unintentionally) dragging down touring rates while trying to connect bands/managers with experienced crew? Thought this might be worth some discussion. cheersContinue

All FOH Engineers. Where do you stand on channel input gain? 72 Replies

I was talking with a fellow FOH engineer about the desk starting point of input gain for all mic's at a live event. I start at "UNITY" then EQ, Compress (if needed) then adjust faders to about the same db for all channel inputs (some where about 10db), then adjust slightly (+,-) to get the mix sound I want. On the other hand my friend gains the mic's way up until they all peak "RED LIGHT" then backs them down 1-3 db then runs the faders on the desk anywhere from 20 db to 5 db per channel…Continue

After 7 years on the road doing bus tours I came to California and started working in the rental…Continue

To Teach or Not To Teach? Why keep "trade secrets"? 20 Replies

I started in the Entertainment industry when I was just 13 years old working at a Summer Stock theatre in N.W. Illinois.  Since then I have had the opportunity to work with some great people who didn't see me as this "annoying kid" but as a peer who worked side by side with them as a professional.  The basics of the industry to me where as natural as breathing, for I had been raised in a blue collar construction based family.  But it was the fine tuned details that I had to learn.  (Lingo,…Continue

How To Get Your First Backline Gig... 20 Replies

Depending on the size of a live concert tour, many people are employed behind the scenes to produce a successful show. Have you ever gone to a concert and wondered, "how do they get this whole stage set up, and torn down in one day?" Typically, a live concert production arrives at the venue between 7 am and 12 noon and is ready for showtime at 7 pm. After the show, the entire production is loaded back into trucks and is headed off to another city by 2 am for another load-in the next morning.…Continue
