Weather is warming up and the gigs are rolling in! Had a busy end of the week these past few days. It all stared Wednesday, I got to run sound for Blue 5’s house band Hoppie Vaughan and the Ministers of Soul, who are always a pleasure to work with! Catch them every Wednesday at Blue 5. Thursday, Missionaries trucked up to Harrisonburg for a show at The Golden Pony (formerly The Blue Nile) with are buds Eureka California (Athens, GA) and Hey Baby (Brooklyn, NY). The show went great, I loved all the new improvements of the venue and the same good vibe as The Blue Nile once had. We will be coming back there very soon.

Friday, I was back home and we had the biggest line up at The Shelf House to date (FACEBOOK EVENT). All locals on the bill and man did the locals come out! Starting the show was Compulsovich playing a stripped down two piece set that would put most full on bands to shame. Matewan took the floor next and just killed it. Haven’t seen a bad show from Matewan yet, I don’t think they will disappoint you. Good Cat, Bad Cat (GCBC) was next, and let me tell you about this group. They all have been around the scene for many years in different project together and not, This by far is my favorite band these guys have done. If you see their name on a flier you better get your ass to that show. Last but not least was Heevahava who I have seen and played shows with for years now. Mark Perry who put this show line up together is a beast on guitar and can sing his ass off while doing it. Great 1st house show of the year if I say so! Look out for more to come!

Saturday, was Martin’s Saint Patrick’s Day Block Party. I was in monitor world all day, and this was a long day. Showed up at 8am didn’t leave until 3am. Really rad line up for the outdoor stage:

12pm – Tobacco Apache
145pm – The Floorboards
330pm – Welcome To Hoonah
515pm – Jackass Flats
7pm – Stolen Rhodes
845pm – Major & The Monbacks
1030pm – The Congress

Front of House and Monitors were run off a Behringer X32 system with a full size console at FOH and the compact in monitor world. Digital head amps and snake were in place and with just a little bit of gain staging set up issues the whole thing worked great! All the bands were pro, sounded great, and were a pleasure to work with.
