Local Crew: Sound Works Productions

May 11, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

A pair of young, daring entrepreneurs (Eric Lindholm, then 19, now 25; and Daniel Nickleski, then 17, now 23) found themselves vying for similar SR gigs. “Both of us had bands in which we ran and owned the P.A.,” Nickleski recalls. “At a young age, we both had a drive to work hard at doing what we love, but we quickly found out it is not easy to make it in the music industry....

Lady Gaga Tour Profile

May 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Lady Gaga is an experience. The performer. The artist. The musician. The fashion icon. The brand. And when “Mama Monster” hits the stage, all her little monsters in the Oakland Arena (Oakland, Calif.) eagerly pumped their paws to the sky in time with her chart-topping hits such as “Telephone,” “Paparazzi” and “Poker Face.” In part evoking a dance club atmosphere while quieting down for softer moments where she tickles the ivories for “You and I,” the Lady Gaga Monster tour is part visual spectacle—replete with numerous costume changes, each more interesting than the previous—and part true musicianship of Gaga and her 12-piece band. ...

After rescheduling some shows, DEVO is back on the road in support of their new album, Something for Everybody, the band’s first studio release in 20 years. Songs such as “Fresh” and “Please Baby Please” have all the hooks, rhythms and beats of past classic DEVO hits.

Linkin Park Tour Profile

Apr 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Linkin Park is a band that delivers—onstage, in the studio and just a few days post-gig.

With a purchased ticket, each fan is offered a high-quality download of the live recording; distribution of the download is provided by Basecamp Productions. ...

The Judds Tour Profile

Mar 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

When mother/daughter team Naomi and Wynonna Judd decided to join forces onstage for their The Last Encore tour, the duo looked within their road family to bring their vocal harmonies to adoring fans. Front-of-house engineer Curtis Flatt has been mixing for Wynonna on and off since 2002, while monitor engineer Pete Parenteau has toured with her since 2005. Both have done a few Judds dates in the interim and so were able to create this tour’s sound design relatively quickly. ...

Mar 1, 2011, Photos and Text By Steve Jennings

Making a name for themselves on the jam-band and festival circuit in 2008/2009, the formerly four-piece Grace Potter & The Nocturnals (the band brought in bassist Cat Popper, who had played with Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, and guitarist Benny Yurco in 2009) are touring mid-sized venues for their new, self-titled release. ...

Dianne Reeves | Crooning With Strings

Mar 1, 2011, By Candace Horgan

A jazz quartet walks into a concert hall and meets a symphony orchestra. That’s not the opening line to a tall tale, but a concert put on at Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver on December 14, 2010. The Colorado Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and Marvin Hamlisch paired with Dianne Reeves and her quartet to put on a jazz Christmas show. ...

Live: Flores Takes PM5D for a Spin

Mar 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Completing his first leg of his North American tour in mid-November and back out early this year, Jason Derulo’s monitor engineer, Billy Flores, is mixing on a Yamaha PM5D. Clair Global supplied snake and mic package, stage boxes, power, and Sennheiser, Neumann and Shure RF systems. Derulo sings half the show on a Crown 311 head set mic into a Shure UR beltpack and receiver; for the other half of the show, he’s on a Shure UR SM87. “Everyone is on ears, including Jason,” says Flores. “The full band includes drums, guitar, key/bass and keys, as well as two background singers, and Jason sings on top of eight channels of Pro Tools [tracks], so I use about 40 channels of the PM5D when all is said and done. ...
