There’s touring, and then there’s touring Nashville style. Country artists are the hardcore frequent flyers of the music business, even if the “flying” is being done aboard a 1993 Golden Eagle with 350,000 miles on it. If you’ve ever been to Nashville on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening during the season, just about every Kroger and Walmart parking lot has several buses idling their engines there, the drivers in the store stocking up on beer and Skittles while waiting for band members and tour techs to assemble at these ad hoc staging areas before the three- and four-day short-run tours.

Although our touring schedule does not resume until later this spring, there are always off-the-road research tasks to be accomplished and proposed modifications to be discussed in preparation for the next run of shows. This year’s itinerary will include several gear transitions outside the U.S. Reproducing our extensive gear spec overseas will require detailed advance planning. That process begins with publishing a precise description of the sound system elements that will be provided by Clair Global for the spring and summer U.S. shows. Read More...

Twelve years after debuting its J series, d&b audiotechnik introduces its new SL-Series flagship line array, which builds upon J’s strengths and propels the company into the future. In January, I traveled to Germany for a close-up, hands-on look at this next-generation, large-format speaker system. And with the company’s new Soundscape object-based immersive audio system, 2018 is shaping up to be an impressive year for d&b.

The Band’s Visit is a refreshingly different type of Broadway musical. While it has some impressive moving scenery courtesy of Scott Pask and moves at a good pace, it eschews flashy song and dance numbers to deliver a heartfelt story about people seeking intimate connections, even fleeting ones, that will excite their ordinary lives. Directed by David Cromer, the show at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre stars Tony Shalhoub as the leader of an eight-piece Egyptian police band that makes an unexpected pit stop in a remote Israeli village after getting the wrong directions to the site of their next concert.
