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. ...

Todd Snider Tour Profile

Feb 1, 2011, By Barbara Schultz

It takes an amusing singer/songwriter performer to command an audience’s undivided attention, armed with little but a guitar and his own songbook. But Todd Snider makes it look easy—even accidental. Singing, picking and story-telling his way through songs like “Beer Run,” “Looking for a Job” and his anthem of sorts, “Conservative Christian, Right-Wing Republican, Straight White American Males.” There’s no stacks, no racks, no effects and often no rock ’n’ roll band to blow people away. ...

Dante Out With Peter Gabriel

Feb 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Peter Gabriel’s New Blood, Scratch My Back Tour saw the artist and a 54-piece orchestra performing cover songs in amphitheaters and arenas throughout Europe. Due to the complexities of delivering orchestral sound to a large arena audience, Brit Row Productions chose Audinate Dante to help control the zones. ...

Roger Waters The Wall Tour Profile

Feb 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

It’s been 30 years since Roger Waters penned Pink Floyd’s mind-blowing album The Wall. Fast-forward to today, and the same political issues, fear and stress on global matters that formed the basis of that album are still quite relevant—and Waters demonstrates this in his jaw-dropping, two-hour (with half-hour intermission) show. The double-disc album—played in its entirety on this tour—concentrates on the walls people build around themselves for survival. ...

All Access: Weezer Memories Tour

Feb 1, 2011, Photos and Text By Steve Jennings

At each stop on their Memories tour, Weezer holds that city hostage for two nights—one for each of their chart-topping ’90s albums: Weezer (The Blue Album) is performed from top to bottom on the first date, and Pinkerton on the next. While the crowd is rocked down memory lane, the band also throws in some other hits, B-sides and songs from their latest, Hurley. Mix caught the Pinkerton date at San Francisco’s Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium. ...

Lady Antebellum Tour Profile

Jan 1, 2011, By Sarah Benzuly

Front-of-house engineer Brett “Scoop” Blanden has seen Lady Antebellum, the three-piece also known as Lady A, skyrocket from the debut of their self-titled album in 2008 to last year’s release of Need You Now (which garnered the band Vocal Group of the Year and Single of the Year for “Need You Now” at the 44th Annual CMA Awards,...
