Another gorgeous wedding yesterday for A Sound Objective’s audio services! This time we were providing all of the sound at the fantastic Kunde Winery in Kenwood, CA! The wedding ceremony, background music and toasts/speeches during dinner, plus the stage needs for Roem Baur and his awesome 9-piece band! 🎸🎸🥁🎸🎹🎻🎺🎷🎤🎤🎙️🔈🔉🔊
Another pic from Saturday’s Kunde Winery wedding. Mixing Roem Baur and the Revival with Roem Baur and Erin Honeywell sharing lead vocals and Emily Palen on violin.
Big ups and much respect to Impact Lighting Audio and Video for supplying ADA compliant cable ramps at all the entrances to todays Culture Amp event on Pier 27 in SF. Most vendors and event venues _never_ use these, just the regular, less expensive kind that are taller/steeper and much more difficult for wheelchairs to cross. As a Small Business Owner I do get it when companies balk at the higher costs per unit but its good to see someone getting with the times and doing it right. 💪♿ #adacompliant #AmericansWithDisabilitiesAct#WheelchairAccess
And I’m PSYCHED to be here today to provide sound again for Ivy Hill Entertainment! It’s always a great time working with them! 🔈🔉🔊🎤
A fun day providing sound for the Kentfield Music Festival over at Bacich Elementary School in Greenbrae! #HomeGrownMusic
Another Perfect Day providing sound for Ivy Hill Entertainment! This time at a wedding on the breathtaking Chalk Hill Estate property! Kristen of So Eventful hit another home run with this one! ♥️👰💍🤵♥️
A great way to spend a Friday, providing sound for another beautiful wedding with Ivy Hill Entertainment! And it was a pleasure working with Small Blue Planet and The Lodge At Point Reyes for the first time too. This sure beats workin’ for a living. 😉
A Sound Objective is always excited and grateful to partner with Ivy Hill Entertainment and Rue 29 Napa for spectacular weddings! This is from Saturday’s wedding at the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, CA. ♥️👰💍🤵♥️
Huge thanks to Adena_Marom for assisting me and always being the world’s best Audio Engineer and to Brent Walsh of I The Mighty for his mad DJ & MC skillz!
A Sound Objective had a great time with the Better World Music School while providing sound for their student band Rock Night!
Have you ever had a career milestone on your day off?!
Yesterday 400 people (from all across the country!) showed up to Mark Bell’s world famous Super Training Gym in Sacramento for a FREE seminar w/ Mark, Jesse Burdick, world record holder Stan Efferding and the undisputed greatest powerlifter of all time, Ed Coan. Mark, Stan and Jesse are each powerhouse event headliners in their own right but as a completely non-athletic nerd that never knew anything about competitive lifting or strength sports even I had heard of Ed Coan’s record smashing career back in the 90s. His name transcended his sport to even reach people like me. Even as a professional concert engineer that has toured w/ platinum selling acts it was not lost on me just how BADASS it was to be the live engineer on this particular event!
I first visited Super Training back in January and since Mark makes his incredible gym available for FREE I figured the best way to repay him and his team was to offer to help with some upgrades to the PA system. They
took me up on it and I started by advising on some easily affordable purchases to augment the existing equipment. I donated the remaining gear needed along with my time and labor to install everything on my days off. I completed the final phase of the upgrades just in time to coordinate w/ Mark’s super talented and hard working video, photography and podcasting team (Andrew Zaragoza, Chris Griffin & Ryan Soper). I provided one of my QSC Touchmix-8 mixers and an extra pair of Sennheiser EW135-G3 wireless handheld mic’s and patched everything into the new gym PA. I was able to provide separate audio feeds to the main video camera, the YoutTube livestream camera and then a backup Zoom audio recorder.
The #ST06 team took the presentation and production quality of the event to a new level and they plan to do more of these FREE strength seminars in the near future. I can’t think of a better way to spend a “day off” than getting to do what I already love while adding mixing for Ed Coan, Stan Efferding, Jesse Burdick and Mark Bell to my resume!!! 💪🏋️ 🔉🔊

My last wedding of the 2017 season. Providing sound for Ivy Hill Entertainment on a beautiful seaside cliff overlooking the Pacific about 20 miles South of Big Sur. Of course, you can see from my photo that the view was mostly obscured by thick fog. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful ceremony and lovely day overall. And I was especially happy and proud to be an integral part of another LGBTQ wedding this year! Congratulations to the two grooms!
This past Friday I had the pleasure of once again handling the audio needs for Ivy Hill Entertainment on another Rue 29 Napa wedding at Farmstead / LMRwine!
