Ben Harper and the Relentless7 Tour Profile

Nov 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

When I learned that for the latest round of Ben Harper & The Relentless7 dates, front-of-house engineer James Shaw and monitor engineer Ricky Leon were contending with house-supplied gear, I was a bit surprised. A five-piece rock band, dueling electric guitars and a very specific sound—I would have thought that the tour would have been using a sound company to help create consistency from gig to gig. But when Mix caught up with the tour at San Francisco’s Warfield Theater, this proved to be unfounded concern. ...

Jeff Bridges & The Abiders

Nov 1, 2011, By Tom Kenny

The Jeff Bridges tour this fall that popped up on a lot of national TV and in some select West Coast wineries sure looked like a lot of fun. Like a bunch of guys getting together on the back porch at Hollister Ranch, working through a playlist they all know through and through. There were songs from Crazy Heart, sprinkled with a number of tracks from his recent self-titled album, some of them co-written by Bridges. ...

All Access: Adele

You could hear the sigh of discontent across the San Francisco Bay Area when Adele cancelled her North American tour mid-run due to laryngitis. Fortunately, just a few months later, this songstress sensation was back on the road, resuming where she left off. Mix caught up with the tour at the Los Angeles Greek Theater. ...

Oct 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Out in support of their sixth studio release, The King Is Dead, folk/pop artists The Decemberists made a pit stop at the annual Outside Lands festival, San Francisco, playing to sold-out crowds near the end of the last day. For the festival date, the crew—including front-of-house engineer Rich Hipp and monitor engineer Marcel Cacdac—brought in all their normal touring gear except for the Meyer speaker system, which was provided by UltraSound. For the rest of their recently wrapped 2011 tour, Portland, Ore.–based Horne Audio provided all equipment. ...

Phish Tour Profile

Oct 1, 2011, By Joanne Zola

If you’re going to change things up, you might as well go all out. For legendary jam-band Phish’s summer tour, not only is front-of-house engineer Garry Brown manning a new console, but his mixes are heard through a new P.A. provided by a change in sound company providers—Clair Global. Mix caught up with the tour-de-force at their three-day SuperBall IX festival in Watkins Glen, N.Y., over the Fourth of July weekend. ...

All Access: Kid Rock

Sep 1, 2011, Photos and Text By Steve Jennings

Kid Rock may have stormed onto the music scene in the late ’90s as a rapper with a Southern edge, but during the intervening years, he’s added rock, country, gospel and many other nuances to his performance. Touring in support of his latest, Born Free, Kid Rock (with a couple of songs with Sheryl Crow) rocked the house at the Sleep Train Amphitheater (Wheatland, Calif.), where Mix caught up with the Sound Image–provided tour. ...
