I'm the monitor engineer for the main stage at the Auckland Folk Festival this weekend. 6 main acts over 2 days who return on Sunday night, plus another 25-odd acts in between. Here are a few pics of my office this weekend.
Working on a show this week as part of the NZ International Comedy Festival. (http://www.comedyfestival.co.nz/)
"Vance Fontaine In Command" is at The Basement from 15-19 May. An improvised performance, each night will feature different revelations about Fontaine(Greg Ellis). Vance Fontaine is the first Kiwi to make it in Las Vegas with his lounge band.
"Part jazz virtuoso, part troubador, part soul shaman Vance Fontaine has carved out his place in New Zealand musical history as the country’s premier male chanteuse. Alongside his band The Peculiar Sensations Vance has toured the globe tirelessly for over 25 years. Musical fads have come and gone and Vance has sucked the marrow of melody from each of them and thrown them aside. He is as eternal as music itself."
I'm engineering this show for it's Auckland run, and am definitely looking forward to it!
