On the Road: Stockholm Syndrome

4/01/2007 12:15 PM Eastern

A slew of benefit concerts have been popping up across the country, featuring top-name artists performing for one person: multitalented drummer/percussionist Wally Ingram. Ingram—who has toured with Sheryl Crow, Tracy Chapman, Jackson Browne, Bruce Hornsby, Crowded House and many, many others—has throat and neck cancer; all proceeds from the shows go to Ingram and his family—a wife and baby girl.


In 2004, Ingram joined forces with Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), singer/songwriter/guitarist Jerry Joseph, guitarist Eric McFadden (Parliament Funkadelic) and keyboardist Danny Dzuik to form Stockholm Syndrome. Recently, Stockholm Syndrome played to a jubilant crowd at San Francisco’s The Independent, which saw the first time Ingram—who recently finished chemotherapy—has played in almost a year. For this two-night stand, Govt. Mule’s Danny Louis manned the keyboards and Cake’s Paulo Baldi waited in the wings in case Ingram needed a break.


Manning these shows were FOH engineers Chris Rabold (of Widespread Panic) and John Hardee; Chris Luden performed monitor duties. According to Rabold, “It’s almost all club gear, which is actually really good at the Independent; I will carry only a few mics [Shure, Sennheiser and Electro-Voice models] and a rack of inserts.” Choice pieces of gear on-hand include Empirical Labs Distressors, and Drawmer 1968 and DL241s. For the S.F. date, the venue-provided FOH board was a Midas Legend; another Legend was at monitor world. The performers were heard through The Independent’s Electro-Voice X-Array; amps were E-V’s P Series.


Select songs from these shows and live tracks from the band’s 2004 tours are available at livedownloads.com; again, all proceeds benefit Ingram and his family.
