    Looks like we got us a good start here. I'm trying to find as many Central Valley TB members as possible, so if you know any - invite 'em on over!

    Welcome!

    Love the tag, I'm a Warwick player myself!
     
  11. No need to assign me a number, but I'll stop in to say Hello!

    I'll even throw out a (poor quality) clip of one of the last times I played in Fresno -

    Clip wasn't that bad, who was doing sound at Babylon that night? Could've brought the vocals out in the mix more, but the bass is certainly right there.
     
  13. Hard to say... We played a small cluster of shows at the Babylon spaced perhaps a month apart, and the sound situation was different every time.

    I think I remember having very little PA support for at least one of those shows, so it's possible that there wasn't an actual soundguy involved that night. I've been asked to turn my stage volume down more often than I care to admit, so that would explain my prominence in the mix...

    A buddy of mine came to see me play a set last night then headed over to Full Circle, said he had a good time.
