Posted far and wide across the web by now but its an interesting question. In my locale I've handled audio for plenty of people I disagreed with but felt they should have their say. This case is unique.

That is right in my back yard, I know who AJ is.  I would not have turned it down and I think the event organizer is in for a world of hurting.


On a fun note here is a pic from the sound guys web site of his "PA system for large crowds" it is interesting.

These are the sorts of things that make me curious, if only academically, about the thought process that led those event organizers to make that particular decision. Did they really have no idea that there would be backlash?

I'm with you, Scott; I also wouldn't have let the client touch my gear. If the organizers want someone to stop talking they can have the individual removed from the lectern.

That photo is quite small; do you have any information on the rig?

I hear ya Scott!  When choosing pictures for my own website I give each one the PSW Sanity Check - if it would raise eyebrows here I certainly wouldn't share it much less use it for advertising. 

The only head-scratching photo on my site is the one of me - in the sense of "so that's what this guy looks like..." for those who haven't met me in person!
