    School & Teen Events A night of firsts

    We've been doing this for 25+ years so we don't see a lot of 'firsts' anymore. Last saturday night was sure the exception. We planned extra setup time because my contact person never replied to my confirmation inquiries prior to the dance. We've been going to this school for about 10 years...

    Putting out fires

    Rick Ryan's thread about his music list concerns got me to thinking about multi ops and damage control. I'm not picking on Rick here, it's just his thread that got me thinking about it. When I managed a multi op, we ran into another multi op after our event one early morning at a Perkins or...

    School & Teen Events Principal: "We aren't having any more school dances..."

    So this school has been having huge stress over their upcoming homecoming dance. The principal had EVERY parent called prior to the dance to inform them of the dance rules: dress code & behavior (including dancing face to face). They were very stressed. The Omaha news TV & papers have had...

    School & Teen Events Needing some fall Roadies!

    Homecomings are just around the corner. Steve just hurt his foot this week, and we will likely be needing some assistance loading in/out at this fall's events. This involves loading gear into the venue, perhaps helping stack speakers and assemble screens, and loading gear back out to the...

    WWYD?

    Okay, here's a scenerio for you....I'll keep the details as concise and objective as possible. You book a prom in Chicago area...with a school you have not yet worked for. The prom is held in a convention center. You send out your regular technical requirements several months prior to the...

    Progress!! New amp rack.

    Finally completed our matching amp racks and distro for the system. (The new one is the one in the middle :sqwink: ) Thought I'd share some pics. Helps make setup/teardown more efficient, setup a little more tidy and finally got around to eliminating a couple pesky buzzes we've been just...

    School & Teen Events How far out do your schools book?

    I am in awe this year at the number of high schools calling for prom with 60 days or less notice. What's the norm in your world? We book between 10-25% 12+ months prior. We book about 50-60% in 5-12 months prior. The remaining 25% or so book 2-5 months. (usually schools new to us) It...

    Weekend pics

    Sound for a band for a street dance was our last minute show. They called 2 weeks ago in a bind and we happened to be sitting home. Great guys to work with. Our only complaint was it was HOT and HUMID. Lots of sweating going on, but no problems, and a fairly enjoyable show once the sun went...

    Our wedding for the year.

    We generally end up doing 1 wedding dance every year for a friend. This year was for the daughter of a long time friend. He wanted to throw a party for his daughter who got married a week ago away from home. This was the 'back home' reception at their house on the farm. Beautiful day for an...

    Another Prom down

    Kinda pressed for space, even though it is in a large room. Had barely enough space to set up; this was as small as we could make our little stereo! lol Tweaked the system and tracked down a phase issue that has been occasionally bothering us. System ROCKED after that. Loaded up in 2 1/2...

    Tis Prom Season at last

    Had our first prom; just got home. Small school. About 40 couples maybe. They had a great time. Things went pretty well and we had a near record load out time of 1:24! Advisor commented "they hired someone else a few years ago once, and it just wasn't the same. It just didn't go as...

    Roomful of kids, big stereo, and a $300 tip

    Had a turn-about dance saturday night. All went basically well. The sponsor was blown away. He didn't see our setup at homecoming, but booked for this dance due to popular demand. 2 hours into our 3 hour dance, he came up and handed me a $300 tip telling me "you guys are awesome" about 9...
