Bill Hanley talk on Monday night
« Reply #5 on: May 12, 2009, 12:24:01 am »

Bill is hoping for some help in pulling together his presentation to make sure he's sharing topics of interest to the audience.  He asked me to ask what folks would like to hear him talk about.  

Got any questions you'd like to ask?

Bill is working to dig up some photos and other content to make it all it can be, so what would you like to hear Bill talk about?

Thanks,
David

Of course the obvious would be the system for Woodstock.  I have heard lots of bits and pieces over the years about what was used-seen various photos etc, but would like a little run down on the gear.

And probably more importantly-how it was all pulled together-what did it really sound like (I REALLY want a time machine to go back and listen to my old gigs), what were some of the issues (grounding-power-stage SPL) and so forth.

I am very much looking forward to his talk.

A Pathetic Cry For Help
« Reply #7 on: May 12, 2009, 10:17:11 am »

I thought I was going to have a vertical Monday night gig that was going to keep me away from the Demo Fest.

The Monday gig fell through, but it seems that now the expenses of a child graduating from high school (AP tests, Prom Tickets, yada, yada, yada)and entering college ($!) have depleted my cash reserves.

As much as I'd love to go to this thing, I just don't see how I can swing it.

I thought of asking another attendee if they'd be so kind to share their room Monday night, but I snore like a cow, and I'd never put anyone through that.

I am off to collect soda bottles and aluminum cans.

Maybe I can work something out.

Dave if I weren't stuck on the day job gig from hell out of town, I'd give you a lift to the get together.  I'm bummed as it is that I can't make the festivities.

Thanks Jeff.

It seems that Keith Clark, who had originally planned to attend the event, can not make it. The powers that be have decided that the event should be properly covered by PSW, and have stepped up with the support necessary to get me to this event.

They are good like that.

I'll see everyone on Monday afternoon.
