A foot in the door.

Well last weekend was fun, was out having lunch with a friend when I get a call: “What are you doing?” I was asked? To which I replied, “What? Right now?” It was the boss, he’d received a phone call for a last minute gig. He was working else where and needed a FoH engineer, so he gave me a call.

The gig was at the Princess Theatre, a venue I had been looking at trying to get into for a while now. And as luck would have it, a gig landed on my lap. It was a bit of a rush as it was all last minute, their normal guy had broken down on the motorway, anyone on the roads that weekend knew how bad it was. Most of the act only got there in the last half hour before they were due to start. Still it was fun and nice to get to work in the Princess Theatre. The band in question was the UK’s The Rat Pack Tribute.

FoH Princess Theatre

The desk is a Soundcraft SiPerformer, second time I’ve used it as FoH engineer, I must say it’s growing on me.

The night went really well with no problems to speak of, which I was grateful for I must say. Not very often I get to do FoH these days. And for a band like the Rat Pack you don’t have much room for error. Also a big thank you to the staff at the Princess, they were incredibly helpful in enabling me to do my job. True professionals.
