I did my first recording job in 1962 when my dad bought me my first tape
recorder. I had three microphones, a mixer, no extension cables and was trying
to record local rock and roll bands!
In 1963 I got a dream job in a recording studio owned by Ed Down, one of those “golden ears” you hear so much about. I learned to listen to the music as well as what hardware needed to do to make a good sound.
I also played professionally in several groups – mostly rock – while in college.
In 1969 I “went on the road” doing live sound and tech for a year and a half.
Since 1963. I’ve done sound for classical choir, pop choir, a cappella vocal groups, vocal bands, rock, metal, punk, and jazz bands, rap, rave, dance parties, folk, and theater. I've done both indoors and outdoors sound.
Since 1998 I've been regularly doing sound for the group Measure By Measure.
I've done the concert series in Thimble Park for the Garment District in downtown KC, Mo since it started. I've also done the DST Systems Arts Festival for several years.
In January of 2005 I was excited and pleased to do front of house sound for the Kansas Music Hall Of Fame. The really cool part is that almost all of the inductees had recorded at Audio House in the '60s! They included Kansas, The Fabulous Flippers, The Red Dogs, The Blue Things, Rodney and the Blazers, and The Chessmann.
June 2005 we did the DJ Tent at the Wakarusa Festival and introduced the Photon Connection Light Show.
