Bliss & Drive At Hooligan's

Another great double-bill at Hooligan's!
This time Bliss willingly gave up our usual spot on the main stage because Drive's lightshow consumes more electricity than the other side of the building can deliver.

We're more about delivering great performances using our talent and experience, so finishing early in the room with better acoustics suited me right down to my toes.

This reminds me of how it looked when The BeWires played at an ATT corporate party in Jackson Miss. circa 1999.
After country superstar Lorrie Morgan's short sit-down-audience set we played the "party" part of the event with rock and dance music.
LM's road crew got so excited by how loud and fun and professional we were that they fired-up their huge lasers and gave me back the rest of the amps and speakers that are normally denied other acts on the bill.
My counterpart (front of house engineer) was a little pissed-off that we managed to sound as good as they did using a little Mackie mixer that cost less than 1/20th as much as their huge imported Midas console.
Fuck that guy.
Size and price don't mean shit if you know what you're doing.
I delight in proving this fact whenever possible using audio, lights and cameras.

Steve's new snare drum killed!
And the new kick-drum heads brought him back to the way things were back 10-20 years.
