It ALL fits in a minivan even with mic stands.

I did not charge anything. But I got an equal cut! (free pop)  I am 73 so about 50 years since we played together.  Job was in April, its May and the van is still full.

lol well doesnít sound like you are ready to hit the road!

I was going to bitch for doing a gig for free but it was a one off.  Keeping the value of the sound tech up is a mission here.

73 is 13 years away for me and I wonder if I will still be gigging.  Luckily I donít have to schlep gear around anymore.  I work for one band that occasionally play a club date but there are 10 of them so we still have a stage hand.

The rest of the time my gigs are fully crewed so I just sit back and watch my team do its thing until I have to pin the stage and get ready for soundcheck. 

Take care

My next job will be another donation for a nonprofit on Worldwide Day of Play.  Just playback with the EMX7 and the 2 S15IVs. A ways off but that system fits in the trunk of an Acura.

My daughter learned some spectacular dance moves with this group. Payback time.  ;D

Folks can say what they will about the Yammy Club series... but like most everything Yamaha, it just lasts.  A local venue opened with the 12" monitor wedges for the front line.  They survived a year of local, regional, and national acts that didn't read the tech pack carefully...  They have nicer wedges now but still have the Clubs for their catering dept.

They do last forever.  I have replaced,
After almost a decade, all my QAC with Yamaha

I'm sure I've said this before, but the church I volunteer at has a full Yamaha Club SM15IV monitor system retrofitted with speakons as well as a F15/F28 system along with MA2400/MA3600VZ. Still works to this day.
