Kip Winger - April 29th 2010

An intimate acoustic performance by Kip Winger, of the bands Winger, Alan Parsons, and Alice Cooper.

LA Guns - Acoustic April 8th and Full Band September 24th, 2010

An intimate acoustic event, and later that year an intimate full band concert. Photo albums for the first event are on Myspace and Facebook.

Steve Alder original drummer for Guns 'n' Roses - July 24, 2010

This was an amazing show. The band traveled with two good stage technicians who set up the amps and drums for the band.

After soundcheck, Steve Adler said he was very pleased with the Meyer speakers used for his drum monitor. "That's how I tell everyone I want my drum monitor to sound - Clean and clear, with depth and punch! This is the best drum monitor I've had in a month! Don't change a thing I love it!"

Steve then went back to the drumset with a grin and played his heart out for a half hour, while Dave Muddiman followed to the monitor console eventually finding some additional improvements to the mix getting approving nods from Steve adler.

The Chirping Crickets - November 13-15 2009

A full scale theatre performance.

The room was carefully measured to assure a great listening experience. There were rehearsals each day. And several hours of tech time before each performance. The event kept getting better.

It was sad to take this show down when it was over.

Island Bay Day Music Festival - Sept 26 2009

14 Bands on two stages through one system. The event was carefully designed in advance.

The client was saved money when it was discovered that onsite utility power was adequate for the efficient Meyer PA speakers.

A beautiful start, but it rained most of the day. A real challenge and everyone stood up to it.

Lowercase Blues with Johnny Neel - March 2006

A great local band with their Producer, Nashville legend and Delaware native, Johnny Neel on keyboards.

Mixed live on a custom designed and on-site aligned combination of Dave's Meyer system and the house's DJ system.

Recorded direct from the preamps to 16 track digital.

Information about the live album release, pictures, and sound clips will be posted at

LiQuid A - Jan 2005

No room is too small for great sound. A recent concert with the most recent sound system configuration. All Meyer speakers except the drum monitor.

A great setup in a small room - the system defintely fits.

Stagehand for the Innauguration - Jan 2005

Two concerts with two different types of systems, valued in the millions of dollars. Everyone was hired before the election - nothing political, just work. Great equipment and bands like Fuel and 3 Doors Down.

A recent concert with the most recent sound system configuration. All Meyer speakers except the drum monitor.

The result was awesome sound for this medium-large sized club.

A theatrical event hired by the union.
A political event featuring Governor Minner and Mayer Baker.
An outdoor rock concert by Backlash.

Live sound for a Musical in the Schwartz Theatre - Dec 2003

A beautiful room and professional actors. The first FOH mixing job throught the International Alliance.

Full of people and with a diificult shape to cover. Clear sound inside the fence but much quieter outside the gate.

Nightclub Sound - 2003 to 2004

The Ground Floor hired Starground for it's biggest performances. Sound was clearly audible and powerful dispite the venue's challenging acoustics.

A rock band in a small restaurant - March 2004

Were it doesn't seem to need a great soundsystem, and fears abound that the gear won't fit or it will be too much. But the truth is the sound system functions great in the little rooms, it is compact enough to fit, and it is never too loud.
