Shows I can’t wait to work #3: Sam Roberts Band at Massey Hall

The title of this blog post speaks for itself. This Friday and Saturday I’ll have the pleasure of working at Massey Hall. I’ve been lucky enough to already have done 4 shows in here before. I’ve been there with Cuff the Duke three times, and Hayden once. All four of these shows have however been as an opening act and this will be my first time in here working for the headliner. I think it will be a more enjoyable experience because we wont be rushed off the stage after only 30 minutes, and I’ll get to spend the entire day in there soaking in the room. The other great thing about it is that I get to watch the entire show from the best spot in the house: stage left. I’ll be sure to take lots of photos from this position because you can’t really appreciate how Massey Hall looks until you see it from the stage during a show.

The other cool thing is that while mixing the monitors for the band, I’ll build my own mix so I can listen to the show exactly how I want to. It’ll also help me hear anything weird that may be happening.

I’m sure I’ll be taking a ton of photos, so stay tuned.
