Now I know what Dorothy felt like

Memphis Tennessee, Home of the King, Beale street and some crazy tornados. All afternoon and evening, there were Tornado warning horns blasting through out the city. 18 miles away from downtown Memphis, there is a mall and in that mall, there is a Sears store that apparently no longer has a roof! We only experienced heavy wind and rain here at the ole Peabody, however, 18 miles is not that far away when you think about it.

The show is really straight forward. Small General Session consisting of a Mackie 1604, 4 Wireless mics, Two EV powered speakers, and a small rack of EQ and Compressors.
Video is two 5k projectors, a 9 x 12 screen, 2 laptops and a Navigator for switching. 
One 1 hour General Session this morning, and 1 hour this afternoon... Really light duty. 
Tomorrow they come back in at 11:30 am for a goodbye, and that is a wrap. We strike and should be done by 1:30. 
Crazy way to make a living, but I won't complain.

I just finished that same program in La Costa for the Western division. Super light duty. I'll take it every time. It makes up for the times that the job really sucks.
