Common and DJ Jazzy Jeff, Sacramento

This was a very last minute process. The client called on Monday to ask if we could do this huge show 5 days later. We didn't even get Common's rider until Tuesday and it took a lot of phone calls to local friends who had some of the gear the rider was asking for. We arrived at 10 am, after setting up another stage for another show in Fair Oaks. This event was situated between two restaurants in a 27' wide space. We did a 24'x20'x3.6' stage with an 8'x24'x18" riser on the back. We only had 1 place for stairs. We called in STL to handle the lighting needs and they did a great job. Common's sound guy arrived and informed us the monitor engineer was not able to make this show, so he would assume monitors and FOH mixing. We moved FOH a lot closer to the stage and we got to work pinning the 40 input stage. The event started at 10 pm and went until 1:30 am. This was a unique event for us since it was in the middle of downtown and sound was 'allowed' that late. I suppose when the Lt. Governor and the mayor are involved, things like this are allowed. We had a good time, but didn't finish load out until 4 am.
