  • I rarely remember the "gig rig picture," here's a glimpse into my current in ear monitor setup (event band and P&W settings)
These @alclairaudio QUADS are awesome.  Do yourself a favor and check them out.  Thanks to @teddy330 for telling me about the company.  My bass brother @abobass thank you for introducing me to @jonnyserrano and @alclairaudio!  And THANK YOU ALCLAIR AUDIO, for your support, excellent customer service and product!
As always, thanks to @moollon!  I am forever grateful for your craft and generosity.

  • My "roots" music 👽🚀😎 If I need to get "fired up" or reminded that "anything is possible/I'm going to rock the F*** out on THE MOON," I  can always count on XTC, OINGO BOINGO and TALKING HEADS to do the trick!
