Lon Graduated Saturday! (Sort of) From Roadie to Recording Tech [PHOTOS]

For years I have been helping my friend Dave, owner/operator of Bluestopia, a division of Jazz Stream records, move and set-up recording equipment for the finest Blues festivals in our great Northwest.

A conflict occurred Saturday when Dave needed someone to operate the 24-channel Mackie digital recorder and ancillary equipment during the first three bands at Untapped in Kennewick. Enter draftee Lon and the very serious look on my face as I monitor while adjust the recording gear with enough buttons and knobs to make even an astronaut nervous.

I’m happy to report that all went well and after 4 o’clock I enjoyed well deserved beer from some of the finest breweries in existence. The micro-brewery that got my vote for best of show was “New School Brewery” of Richland. Their first year at the festival as they have just begun producing.
