Grand Strand MotorCycle Rally 2010

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010
I am late in making this post. I returned from the Grand Strand (Formerly Myrtle Beach) rally over a week ago. This was my second year in Myrtle with the SAC system. The rally was shortened a bit and was not well attended, but the venue I work had a good weekend and is planning to continue the tradition in the fall. Myrtle Beach decided that they The Rest of the Story [...]

One Year Anniversary

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010
The Church of God Woman's convention marked my one year anniversary of using SAC as my main mixing solution. I had done one small gig with my SAC rig before the convention last year. This was my second woman's convention using SAC. In the fall when I did the Youth Convention in the same room my remote refused to connect to the main computer via WiFi. The Rest of the Story [...]

BikeWeek Wrap-up

Sunday, March 7th, 2010
The Daytona 2010 BikeWeek is now something for the history books. People came to the rally and partied. I did not talk directly to vendors but heard that it was a crowd of lookers, not buyers. The weather was somewhat less than co-operative. The temperatures were low for the whole rally. There was, however, only one rainy day and that mostly in the The Rest of the Story [...]

Gospel Choir Concert

Saturday, February 6th, 2010
February 4th was the evening of the annual spring Gospel Choir Concert at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach Florida. I have provided sound reinforcement for the Gospel Choir. This year was the first opportunity to use the SAC rig. This is a choir of singers. There is not too much problem getting the voices out. This year the Alto section was The Rest of the Story [...]

My Summer of Successes

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009
I see that the last post was the end of May. I have been slack in posting to this blog. That does not mean that there have been no outings with my SAC rig. In June I did two major events using the SAC rig. The first was the Laconia, NH motorcycle rally. This was a eight day event. I did carry the analog board along and it was used for the Bang Camero The Rest of the Story [...]

BCASCA Jamboree

Saturday, May 30th, 2009
The BCASCA Jamboree is an annual event with which I have been evolved since its inception. BCASCA is the Brevard Caribbean American Sports & Cultural Association. The event was held Labor Day weekend for several years, but consistent bad weather and a hurricane caused them to change the date to Memorial Day weekend a few years ago. There is a The Rest of the Story [...]

SAC at the Myrtle Beach Spring Rally

Friday, May 29th, 2009
Myrtle Beach Spring Motorcycle Rally - 2009 was the first motorcycle rally for which I used the Software Audio Console. The motorcycle rally business makes use of some SAC features that I had not had opportunity to use up to this point. For a rally there are typically multiple performances by various acts on consecutive days during the event. There The Rest of the Story [...]

The Lounge Lizard Benefit

Friday, May 29th, 2009
The third time out with the SAC rig was the benefit event for Reuben Morgan aka 'The Lounge Lizard'. Reuben has been a figure on the local scene for many years and has done much for the community in the promotion of live music. He has been stricken with a debilitating disease and so is unable to work for a time. The community came together to support The Rest of the Story [...]

The second time out

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009
The second event for which I used the SAC rig was the Church of God - Cocoa office state women's conference. This annual event is held in a hotel conference room in Orlando, Florida. There is a good deal of music with the COG conventions. There is typically a full band, 6 praise team mikes plus a solo mike, a wireless mike for the podium and a couple The Rest of the Story [...]
