We had the distinct pleasure of providing sound production and lighting for High Performance Rodeo and One Yellow Rabbit’s Calgary Songs Project. The show consisted of “30 Songs Celebrating 30 Years, a tribute to this city’s recent musical heritage.”
For this event we arrived early at the Royal Canadian Legion to set up two dual 18″ sub woofers, four 3-Way QSC speakers, six stage monitors, eight par cans, five LED battens, four specials and a hazer. Everything went oh so smooth and we even had time to break for a proper sit down meal.
Alas when we exited The Palomino we discovered our van had been towed! Unfortunately we had parked in a zone with towing after 3:30 pm. Not to be discouraged, we went to the tow yard, got the van and were back at the gig just in time for sound checks.
There is never a dull moment in this business which certainly contributes to my continual enjoyment as a production company owner.
What a treat it was to hear blasts from the past performed by current local Calgary talent.
Thank you to Kenna Burima and Arif Ansari for having us. We hope the event will occur annually and we look forward to contributing our services in the years to come.
