New Mackie SRM Series Pumps Up Premier New England Rock Venue

Nashua, New Hampshire – November, 2013… It’s not often that an audio professional will purchase gear without ever having heard it, particularly for an entire stage setup blasting high profile hard rock and punk bands like Dope, The Misfits and Soil.

But long-time live sound pro Jim Roese confidently took this plunge when Bernie’s Bar in Jim Roese1Nashua, NH hired him to redo their stage setup. Roese owns a high-end pro audio company called RPM Dynamics and also works as Production Manager/Monitor Engineer for Blondie.

Prior to Roese’s arrival, bands were having…

Hey Marseilles Takes Mackie on the Road

Hey Marseilles is everything a great indie band should be – a bit different, slightly quirky, Hey Marseilles1left-of-center, with irresistible songs that burrow their way into your brain, set up camp, and refuse to leave. The band’s decidedly unconventional mix of folk and classical – or, as they themselves describe it, “folkestral” – has gained them an enthusiastic following from coast to coast and well beyond.

The band has been maintaining a busy touring schedule in support of their sophomore release, Lines We Trace. With a different venue in a different…

CASPAR BABYPANTS FINDS BIG JOY IN SMALL THINGS

“Caspar Babypants is one of the few children’s recording artists that I can listen to without wanting to stab myself in the eyes.” – Weird Al Yankovic

Caspar-SRM150

I am sure all the moms, dads, aunts and uncles can appreciate Weird Al’s endorsement. After all, you want your children to listen to music and, yes, the normal Barney/Thomas/Wiggles tunes do teach your child important life lessons. But it can get old…quick.

What made you become a DJ?
After years of bringing in DJs to scratch on various hip-hop projects, producing and dealing with scheduling conflicts, I purchased my first turntable. Then, before I knew it, I got a second one and started playing out (after checking other DJ’s in the scene and feeling that my musical tastes and skills were up to par), so it kinda’ happened by default. I was immediately hired to do live sound design for a famous photographer (David la Chapelle),…

What made you become a DJ?
It was pretty much a natural progression for me since I was record collector at an early age. I ended up with an incredible collection of the best music on the planet right in time for me to take advantage of an opportunity, by chance, to play a party and things just kind of snowballed from there.
What was your most exciting DJ gig to date?
Performing for the Orange Bowl Half-Time Show. The 1st time I did it was in 2006 and…
