Unsung Heroes

I just got home from playing a gig in Penticton BC, with the J.S. Garcia Band, and wanted to give a shout-out of appreciation to all the hard-working sound techs and gear-heads that make live music such a treat for both the performers and the audiences.

You are the unsung heroes who make it all come together.

Especially during the annual craziness known as "Festival Season".

Nothing says this better than Jackson Browne's the Load-Out/Stay, perhaps the most perfect song ever written in honour of the symbiotic relationship between performer, audience, and the sound crews who work tirelessly to serve everyone, with just the right combination of professionalism and a good-natured grin at the end of a long, hot day.

We truly appreciate all that you do for us.
