Gearing up and old memories.

Postby BillESC » Wed Dec 22, 2010 12:11 am

Started working on the gear for the two events I have next week. The Holly Ball and a NYE formal gala.

This year the Holly Ball is being held in a frame tent for the first time so the 8 circuit lighting snake I've used in the past won't work. So I decided to take the snake apart because individual cables is what I need. As I was working on this I remembered when this snake was assembled. Peter Lango and I along with a case of connectors and a 5000' reel of 14/3 built this snake (along with 7 others) for the Teddy Pendergrass touring system somewhere in the mid to late 70's.

All of the lighting fixtures have been converted to C clamps from aluminum O clamps since I'm clamping to the frame of the tent and not the truss I normally bring.

Tomorrow I'll pull the power distribution, control/dimmers, flat screen monitors and start loading the road cases. Thursday I'll pull the sound system.
