The tour kicked off in the U.S. with a show at The Wolf trap in Vienna, VA; then off to St. Chamond France and on to exciting stops in Pohang South Korea, Beijing China, Yerevan Armenia, Stockholm Sweden and London UK before heading back to the states to catch the Transatlantic Blue Note Cruise aboard the Queen Mary II.
The 2016 summer concert season is upon us and I once again had the privilidge to travel to Europe and mix FOH for Dee Dee Bridgewater. We started the tour in Foggia, Italy where Dee Dee performed with a local big band at an evening concert held in a small town square. From Italy we were off to Penedes, Spain where we met up with Theo Croker and his band Dark Funk who performed with Dee Dee for the rest of the tour.

Had the privilege to mix FOH for Dee Dee Bridgewater, Theo Croker and Theo's band Dark Funk at the recently opened Blue Note Hawaii. What a wonderful venue for live music, the staff is exceptional and the location is unbeatable. This is definitely one spot that needs to be on your bucket list.

Had the chance to do a quick one off show in Italy last week with the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra and Dee Dee Bridgewater. Great group of artists with an amazing sound. What a pleasure for me to mix for such a talented group. If you have not heard it yet, definitely check out "Dee Dee's Feathers". This album is a great collaboration with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.

Another weekend and another successful recording project. I was on site at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, IA working with my good friends from Audio Visions. While crew members Erik Rudd and Zeke Metcalf manned the monitor mix and front of house mix positions, I took a 48 channel input split along with some additional room mics to produce full mutli-track recordings for 6 bands. My control room for the weekend...the men's home team locker room.

Congratulations to the entire Blue House crew on the release of their new CD "At The Pit".
Thanks to the group for allowing me to be part of the project. We certainly had a good time making the record and I am confident that all of your fans will thoroughly enjoy the record. You can get you copy of "At The Pit" at the following locations:
Sunday April 26th I was on site at the historic 40th Street Theater in Omaha, NE for a live recording session with Blue House and the Rent To Own Horns. The theater is currently being renovated by owner John Hargiss. Even under construction this historic space provided a great sounding and inspiring environment for the band to perform. Mixes are under way at 7 Times 7 Records in Omaha, NE. Thanks to John Hargiss and his wife for being such wonderful hosts and thanks to Blue House and the Rent To Own Horns for entrusting me with this creative and exciting recording.
