Sound check with Enrique Iglesias, in Abu Dhabi 2015

What’s up everyone 🙂

We recently performed with Enrique Iglesias in Abu Dhabi for the F1 Racing Concert Series.
It was an incredible experience (30K+ People) made even more so when I saw pics of my favorite band
from childhood, Bon Jovi, who had played there a few weeks before us, on the same stage.
Amazing experience!

As usual, I always try to give you guys a cool view of my life on the road, so, here is a clip I recorded of the song
“Takin’ Back My Love” from our sound check.
What you will hear is MAINLY Drums (Van Romaine) and Percussion (Gilmar Gomes).
The bigger BAND sound you are hearing, and any guitars, vocals, keys are all coming from the PA…far away from where I am 😛
Anyway, I think it’s a cool vibe of us on stage.

I hope you enjoy , make sure to turn on the HD 😉
Feel free to reach out as usual and let me know what YOU would like to see (Don’t ask me for Enrique footage, I can’t do that).

Playing with Mr. Enrique Iglesias

ei 940x380 for website

Wow! It has DEFINITELY been a while since my last blog, so let me get you up to date 🙂

For the past few months I’ve had the pleasure of playing with the awesome “Enrique Iglesias”!
It came right on time, after a great summer tour with “Smash Mouth”.

I’ve also gotten married to my wonderful Fiancée. We had a nice ceremony in Vegas with a bunch of our friends
BETWEEN a few legs of the Enrique tour. It was great to see a lot of people and catch up..and also, get married 😉

In case you’re wondering, no, I haven’t LEFT “Smash Mouth”…that being said, they may move on since I can’t do some of the gigs
as some of you have noticed when you came to see me and I wasn’t there 😛
So…whoever takes over…I’ll make sure and come watch you play when I can haha.
I miss the guys a lot…and you guys (the fans) as well.

Anyway…I gotta hop on a plane to Ecuador right now.
Hit me up any time, you know how to reach me 🙂

Time lapse video – Smash Mouth Stage

What’s up everyone!

So, I got this video for you fans and gear heads, and just people in general 🙂
It’s a time lapse FROM load in right up to our show intro and first song.
The video was shot in at Waterfest, Leach Ampitheater, Oshkosh, WI on 7.9.15
Do yourself a favor and hit the HD button 😉

Let me give you the scoop on what’s going on in this video 🙂
Song: “Had Enough” – Written by Daniel Brecher, Gregg Cash, Devin Lebsack & Myself

* Main dude setting up keys and drums, the star of the vid – Robbie Cope
* Around 40 seconds in, you see Mike get very involved in his new rig, still working out some of the cool details that it can do!
* 1:05 – Jason comes out to help Robbie with tuning the new heads etc.
* 1:18 – Notice the guy (rigger I believe) climbing up the rope ladder onto the truss (on the left) to aim lighting at us 😛
(Couldn’t pay me enough to ever do that!)
* 1:28 – As they continue to set the lighting for the show we start first song for sound check.
* 1:36 – Second song for sound check!
* 1:42 – Third song for sound check 🙂
* 1:50 – Fade into DOORS JUST OPENED Cam! So, what you’re seeing is our drums on the right, covered. Randy’s drums
(Drummer for “Toad The Wet Sprocket“) on the left riser, where the keys were before (they are now on the floor in back
of the riser).
As people start to poor in, the local band “Sushi Roll” takes the stage with all the hits and nothing BUT the hits!
* 2:03 – “Tonic” takes the stage as people keep rolling in.
* 2:10 – Fade to stage change over between “Toad The Wet Sprocket” and the “Smash Mouth” stage. The crowd is READY to rock!
*  2:37 – Robbie starts the show after getting his cue from Blake Williams (Monitor Engineer) and Patrick Bojanic (FOH Engineer/TM etc.).

And, back to real time speed. If you’ve seen any of our shows in the last year and a half, you know this intro (created By Patrick Bojanic)
These mice aren’t doing it justice, this intro is BANGIN’!!!!
Only to be experienced correctly live and in person!
Then – 4:05 – “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”

Thanks to: Patrick Bojanic, Robbie Cope, Tyler Dragness, Blake Williams and everyone else who helped with this vid.
Also thanks to: Shabat Guitars,  Digitech,  LSL Instruments, Mesa BoogieBogner,  Eastman AcousticsDavid Allen Pickups,  Reunion BluesUltimate Ears  & DR Strings

Smash Mouth – fun facts about sound check vid :-)

First off, make sure you watch this in hi res for full effect and keep the volume a bit lower since
you’re listening to STAGE volume…pretty loud 🙂

So here are a few funny things about this video –

You’ll see about 30 seconds in that I’m looking back at my rig. What I’m looking at is my RJM Effects Gizmo unit
to see if it’s getting MIDI and changing my sounds.
I see the unit isn’t getting my MIDI Program change commands so I call my awesome guitar tech Tyler Dragness
to come over. As he comes over, you can hear him sing “More baby” with me and crackin’ me up!
I tell him what’s going on and he goes to check it about a minute into the vid.

At about 1:22 I’m cheering up our Sound Engineer and Tour Manager Patrick Bojanic by chanting “Go Paddie, Go Paddie” into
my mic (you can’t really hear it, but HE can) 🙂

Around 1:35, I  check that what Tyler did worked, and it did…apparently he had just put the MIDI cable into the output rather
than the input, causing a little mixup (as he tells me at 2:30).

At 1:59 I royally screw up and make a stupid face 😛

And that’s about it folks 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the insight into the sound check and hearing “Can’t Get Enough of You baby” in a more…special way.

Also, for those who like the info, I’m using my Blonde Shabat Guitar (My model) that has some David Allen Pickups in it,
I gotta admit, I don’t remember which, Dave probably knows better than me haha.
You can see my awesome Red, 3D printed UE-RM In Ears in my ears. They are crystal clear and I have a few sets of them,
just in case 😉

The sound is a little harsh because of the #GoPro mic and the fact that it’s pointed at the amps 😛
Other than that, if ya have any more questions, feel free to ask me!

Successful trip to Israel and radio interview :)

Sobar event

Well, I’m back from Israel (and off to NJ).
It was an absolute pleasure playing with the Sobar Band and other artists including my buddies Daniel Brecher
(“Hayehudim”, “Drugstore Fanatics”) and Eyal Glass (“Deep Sea Creatures”) for the wonderful Fundraising event.

We also did this radio interview while I was there with the awesome Mottle Wolfe.
Check it out here 🙂

Looking forward to more continued success for the foundations I work with.
As usual, hit me up any time…more dates coming up soon for the summer tour.
