If it is not Ian then what do you think the problem is ?
I know on the whole most people tell me how good the sound is on stage, and I have played the stage myself and never had a problem with monitor mix ..BUT I am very interested in knowing what you think so I can help make it better.
FWIW, I think maybe the PA just needs to be professionally set up/eq'ed/etc for the room maybe?? I'm not an expert, I just know that it's never been perfect, so if less than perfect is as good as it gets, it only gets worse from there.
After the first couple of times I saw shows and played there I thought it wasn't perfect but not bad at all, better than some other clubs around town, and figured stuff would get worked out. It's hard to form an educated opinion after a couple of shows.
My point is that one or 2 times of playing there doesn't really give you an idea of how it sounds in general, but after playing there around 10 times I think I have a pretty good idea of how it is on a good night and a bad night. Ian has only worked on the nights where it was better until this last one, which leads me to believe it's not him but the sound system and that he's doing his best with what he's got to work with. also, I'm pretty sure most of our problems were with the bass being so low. Everything else sounded good, but bass was non-existent. I have video from out front of it too, and the bass is barely there at all.
the rest of the bands all sounded pretty good out front the other night. Not like the show in August where it did not.
And nice to see you the other night.
