I had my 1st gig as a pro sound provider on Saturday. 8 piece Motown\ swing band. I've been putting a PA together slowly over the past year and got a good deal on some older 18" subs a couple of weeks ago which gave me enough of a system to make it happen. I get there an hour and a half before start time and start to set up my rig. Band arives with 40 minutes left. Scramble to run mics and monitors after I have to move where I had my amps and mixer(x18)setup. No sound check, Just enough time for a quick level check and then start the 1st song. 1st song is Vehicle by the Ides of March( I think). The 4piece horn section starts out full speed ahead. The mix was 90% there. I'm glad i spent the time to build a pretty comprehensive scene. After about an hour a storm came in and we had to shut down. Scrambled to cover gear and pack up. Got full pay and quite a few compliments. System had plenty of headroom and the mix was crisp. All and all it was pretty successful.
