Doobie Brothers…

Posted by delta on 28th February 2007

Very nice production team, and the band is very cool as well. I
forgot these guys were here just a few months ago (when it gets busy
in this business, one year just seems like one long day). My days
have been blended together now since September. Sorry I haven’t been
keeping you guys up2date on the latest…

Finally ready to rock!

Posted by delta on 28th February 2007

Makes me happy to have this up again…

I’m doing the Doobie Brothers for a corporate conference tomorrow, so I really wouldn’t have had the time to mess with it for another day. Today was the only time I really had and it got done! WordPress is really a great program guys!

Kind of a cool thing on the side. Last week I did two shows for Jose Feliciano, followed on the third day by Stevie Nix, and now I have the Doobie Brothers tomorrow. Kind of a cool trend floating the Maui way right now – hope it keeps up. Come to think of it, I worked a Michael McDonald show at the Ritz Kapalua last month…

Only thing that bites is that they were all corporate shows – so the public didn’t even know they were happening. Most of the shows I’ve done this year have been corporate…

The only public shows I’ve done so far this year were:
The Mercedes-Benz Championship in Kapalua
The Shanghai Circus at the MACC
Henry Kapono at the MACC
Barefoot Natives at the MACC
Keali`i Reichel at the MACC
Anti-Gravity at the MACC

Other than the six above, I can’t think of any “For Public” event that I’ve done this year (yet) worth mentioning. But it’s only the first two months of 2007, it will all pan out…

Finally up and running again…

Posted by delta on 27th February 2007

I’m finally up and running again. This is the longest I have went without an outlet since 1995. I kept my old blog in its place, so those of you who would like to check it out for past material can do so…

Unfortunately, it only has data for the last few years. I lost 10 years of data when upgrading my last weblog. Actually, that’s not the complete truth. I lost my domain and didn’t have a backup of my blog. I owned deltavtech.com for 10 years. When I moved from California to Hawaii, Network Solutions had big time issues making the address change for me. So I waited for the domain to run out so I could buy it with my new address. 5 minutes after it ran out I went to buy it and someone else now owns my domain…

I’m gonna drop it right there, cause it gets me going somewhere I don’t wanna go right now – besides I don’t have the time right now…

I have a vodcast coming – I’m gonna do it about the business I’m in and the place I live – most people would agree, both are great topics…

I’m an A/V Tech on the island of Maui who works in every venue on the island, so I have a lot of great shots for you guys. My specialty is on the computer and video side of the business, so you know I won’t put crap on my vlog…

Basically, I’ll show you who the guys are (and what they do), what the venues look like (and provide tech specs), the equipment we use (and who owns it) and what shows we’ve done most recently. I think it will be a great marketing tool for all of us…

Talk to ya soon,
D
