Wo hoo!! So last night was the first opportunity to work with Joe & his PA (latest bandmember, lead singer / bass player). Joe was a kick to work with and did a fine job. His PA: Mackie 1604 vlz pro mixer Mackie sa 1521 tops Mackie swa 1801 subs Holy shiite, it filled a large venue without even breaking a sweat. At one point, I turned down the PA because the room was saturated (PA so loud that you couldn't hold a conversation without yelling in someone's ear, and the stage mix was washed out). If anyone wonders what these powered Mackies are capable of, let me tell you, they can perform. My role as a bandmemeber has changed a bit also: I now sing lead vox on 2 songs, play about 15 songs on keys, sing plenty of backing vox, do some electronic percussion and play bass about 50% of the time. Wife is getting chinese food, gotta go but just wanted to share in some good cheer and hope all is well for my TB friends.
