Dear SoundMan, Just exactly what is the secret to your SoundMan powers? - Batman -
Read, ask, look, listen, practice and share. And of course the secret SoundMan fuel - mexican food. Now the SoundMan is no culinary snob. He enjoys the SoundMan staples found in truck stops and motel vending machines lubricated with Red Bull, but when nothing but the best will do you can find the SoundMan at his favorite local mexican restaurant in Greensboro the Taqueria El Azteca Mexican Grill on Spring Garden Street. This is no pedestrian Speedy Gonzalez eatery, this is an authentic, made form scratch, 'No Can in Our Mexican, mexican grill. If I may be so bold as to recommend, try the Mole De Pollo - their mole sauce is pure mexican heaven. SoundMan gives Taqueria El Azteca his highest five SoundMan rating.
Happy Eating - SoundMan -

Please, your captive
audience wants to know where leg #1 goes. Also
where does the neutral really come from, if not
from the, er, neutral? Brandon | 05.11.06 - 9:44 pm
Now that wasn't so hard was it. My neutral is indead connected to the first hot leg in this three phase pannel. fortunately all of my Dynacord amplifiers survived with just two internal blown fuses. For the record you can use the amps with 220V if you configure it ahead of time. Any one know of a possible advantage to running the amps with 220V? And by the way - to all of those who gave me the wrong answer - you are not allowed to tie my power in. SoundMan- SoundMan | Homepage | 06.23.06 - 2:24 am | #

We are excited to announce that Electro-Voice is poised to release the world's most advanced audio system. A system so advanced that even EV's sister company MIDAS has temporarily had to halt production of their new XL8 Live performance System for redesign.
Decades ahead of it's time, this revolutionary system by Electro-Voice has only recently been possible to manufacture due to late breaking advances in computer, molecular and material science. The visionary brilliance of the late Dean Nordquist of EV is poised to become a reality. Over 40 years of secret research and development, in an unmarked basement laboratory in the old EV factory in Buchanan, MI, has gone into the project. It's has long been rumored that world renown Electro-Voice audio guru Jim Long remained in Buchanan along with the shadow president of EV, Paul McGuire, to oversee the completion of the project.
Thanks Dean - The audio world owes you a debt of thanks for your visionary genius.

We will all be there to try it again next Sunday, this time at Latham Park. The group Tuba's In the Summer starts the concert at 6 PM and is followed by The Greensboro Concert Band at 7:15. Once again by clicking here you can find the complete schedule at the official MUSEP web site.
John Carey and Tommy Martin just successfully completed a week long audio academy in Atlanta and were awarded certificates of completion. The academy was hosted by our friends at Vision 2 Marketing. Among the many industry leaders giving presentations was a personal friend of mine. The legendary Jim Long of Electro-Voice shared his many years of knowledge of audio and acoustical fundamentals.
We just ran into former CareySound general manager Sam Hamlin at Infocomm in Orlando and he told us he is getting married in the fall. Sam is now working over in Aggie Land at NCA&TSU.
And while I am on marriges, our friend Brandon Potter has just informed us of his impending nuptials in July. Brandon is the head audio production guru over at First Assembly of God in Winston-Salem.
I guess this old SoundMan is just going to have to break down and by a suit.
We ran into James Mintz last Sunday at MUSEP. He was there with his family. His dad plays with the Greensboro Big Band that was performing that evening. James was the second amazing intern to come to us from Greensboro Day School. He is studying music and we hope he keeps us in mind when he graduates.
And finaly I just got an email form another CareySound Alumni, Rick Earl, saying that he has just accepted a new job at Elon University as their new Technical Director for Cultural and Special Events. Rick was one of CareySounds finest head audio engineers.
The return of Music for a Sunday Evening in the Park (MUSEP) heralds the official start of summer in Greensboro once again. Even the rain last Sunday evening could not dampen the enthusiasm for the new season of free weekly concerts hosted in various parks thorough the city by the Music Center, City Arts of the Greensboro City Parks and Recreation Department.
A couple of years ago the city cut funding for the sumer series and the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro took over the financial responsibilities allowing the over 20 year old program to continue. Considering the series to be a valuable community resource the Foundation combined it with another annual city concert series, The Barber Park Series, and expanded the experience by providing additional resources to allow adding a second performing group to most of the concert dates. This years MUSEP series now covers 17 Sundays with 25 different musical groups.
CareySound has been providing audio production for the event for most of its history and proudly continues that tradition again this year. The series presents a demanding audio challenge. Audience sizes vary between 2 to 8 thousand and ages range from toddles to retirees. The musical groups cover every thing from large 60 piece concert bands and symphony orchestras to jazz trios and folk. All of this diversity requires a great deal of flexability in an audio system. Three years ago we discovered the perfect audio solution in the Dynacord Cobra portable line array system. Stop by any Sunday and we will gladly give you a tour of the system and more insight into the production.
The next MUSEP concert is this Sunday, June 4th, at Foust Park behind Aycock Auditorium on the campus of UNC-Greensboro and begins promptly at 6:00 PM with the jazz stylings of the Dave Fox Group and is followed at 7:15 PM by the group FourForOne. Bring your friends, neighbors and family along with a blanket & picnic dinner and join us. It's the perfect way to spend an evening in the park and it's free. By clicking here you can find the complete schedule at the official MUSEP web site.
