We spend a lot of time lauding the members for the band for their performances, but they could not do it without the support of a lot of other folks.

A good part of my experience last night was due to the amazing sound set up by Marty, sound man for the DTB.

I'm a "stage moth", and was fortunate to get two seats up front last night. With DTB in particular, that used to mean you hear Derek and Todd directly from their amps and Rico and the Count with no problem, but not much of Mike or Kofi, since the sound from the side stacks is aimed towards the crowd.

Not only were there front fills set up (monitors pointed to the crowd instead of the band), but they were perfectly balanced. Derek's amp was screened and the sound levels set perfectly, so the amp did not overwhelm the mix of the fills. The Allman's had nice front fills at the Beacon, but I have never experienced such a beautiful mix up front at ANY show.

Thanks Marty!!!

That's right, thanks Marty!

I also think the ability to even address the front row sound varies from venue to venue...and nowadays I perfer to hear the whole band like a nice cohesive whole.

For years my wife and I stood in the Derek Zone, incased in that thick tone while we watched Mike's lips moving without any sound coming out....

Marty's always been a nice guy too...even got that last soundboard released for us - Jeanne's favorite IMAC show...

Bobby is the guitar tech... I'm sure Marty was still there doing sound.

Bobby is a nice dude as well.

Bobby is a cool cat. He usually runs monitors for the band on the side stage, but if Marty is sick or whatnot, I'm sure he mans the ship and runs FOH.
