Getting Your Studio Disaster-Ready

November 14, 2018

I share some pointers on disaster preparedness. While I walked away fine from Hurricane Florence, I will still use the same guide for future storms. Also there are more resources out there, but are often regional-specific, so do your research.

Donating what I could to Hurricane Recovery

October 8, 2018

Hurricane Florence hit my current home of New Bern pretty hard.  My family was lucky to not have any damage from the storm, and the studio I work at was also unscathed.  When GEM Productions approached me to help out with a benefit concert, I jumped at the chance.  Together with Patrick Edwards at Calico Sound, I mixed the sound for the event.  The secondary stage (outdoors) for the beginning of the night was set up for small acoustic duo and single acts (Adam Hill and Carolina Sky), the inside main stage was set up for full bands (Big Jim Kohler and Hot Buttered Grits).  I focused on the secondary stage, and assisted on the main stage.  The event raised over $2,600 (not including other donations) and fed at least 400 people.  In our small community that was a success.

Visit and peruse the videos. Book time if you are in the area.

This video is my newest:

We just finished with Bernaroo this past month, and once again I had a great time. I don’t have as many pics this time as I was busy handing out frisbees and signing people up for our raffle for studio time. We showcased some of the videos we were working on, and some of the music we recorded. The band that were showcased at the event were great as usual, and with two stages this time, there were twice as many bands to enjoy. The new venue at the farmer’s market was perfect for the growing event. I cannot wait to attend next year.
