Any crew acknowledgments have to start with AC Fader--an integral part of our touring crew since the heady days of our Third Thursday residency at Republic. (In pace requiescat.) For the past four years, AC has not only mastered the art of the roaming, sports jacketed, iPad sound engineer for corporate events and weddings, but has also seamlessly integrated our in-ear monitor system with various front-of-house consoles at theaters and concert venues including The Jefferson, The National, The NorVA, The Hippodrome (as shown below), and on NYE this year, The Beacon Theater. Although in most cases, the band travels with a self-contained sound and lighting package, AC's ability (and flexibility) have been proven again and again. His tap tempo skills on vocal delay effects are legendary in certain circles (our van), and he has subbed for Danny Marnier on drums as well. Add to all that, he is finishing up the final mixes on our relatively-soon-to-be-released double live album, cheekily and tentatively titled Sold Out!
To AC, Alex, and to Guy Centennial, Enrique Pickelle, Bobby Bravado, Patrick Klotsofletters, Stan O'verboard, and to all the other unsung touring and local crew members who have rolled cases, engineered sound, and done your best to make us look and sound our best on stage over the years, you know you guys are the champs!
