Today, I was reading the lineup of musicians for the Home County Music and Art Festival July 17th to July 19th, 2015 at Victoria Park, London, ON. What a great lineup of musical acts! Col. Chris Hadfield is the MC for the Friday mainstage shows. That is awesome!
Tonight I was revisiting the Yamaha Pro Audio web site researching some products and I came across an older application guide book that I downloaded myself. It is the 2010 Yamaha Sound Reinforcement Application Guide book. Here is what the cover look like:
The guide book is a really great resource for sound techs setting up sound systems or putting together systems for different kinds of shows or events. Inside, the book highlights various sound system setup scenarios using Yamaha branded gear in the examples. They have detailed diagrams of sound setups for every thing from a simple band rehearsal systems to a full concert systems with recording setup.
Over the years, I have referred to my copy to help with decisions for sound system setups on my own gigs.
I find it valuable to show to a client when showing them ideas for sound systems for their events. I keep a downloaded copy of it on my smart phone and tablet. Obviously, with the 2010 date, some of the products are slightly outdated but, the general purpose of the guide book is still relevant today. Maybe someday Yamaha will released a revised and updated copy of this great reference tool.
I have my ticket to see Manteca live in concert at Aeolian Hall in London, ON on May 8th, 2015. I have been waiting a very long time to see one of my favourite Canadian bands play live. I am so pumped and so looking forward to the show.
Recently, I found a great video posted by Charlie Cooley, the drummer for Manteca. The song is called Big Bear from the 1989 album called Perfect Foot. Check out the video if you enjoy a little jazz music. Cheers!
My favourite Canadian jazz band, Manteca is playing live at Aeolian Hall in London, ON. on May 8, 2015. I have got to get me a ticket as I so pumped about finally being able to see this great band in concert!!!
Their latest CD called "Monday Night At the Mensa Disco" was released in 2013. It is one of their best albums to date.
