Just got off the phone with a very experienced live sound engineer friend of mine. I called him after not being able to get through to a couple other guys. I didn't call this friend first because, well, I assumed he'd be too expensive and too busy to hire. I finally called him only out of desperation just to ask if he knew of anyone else I could hire or could give me an idea of how much this live recording might cost us - ballpark figure.

He did me one better. He's not too busy or too expensive. He's sending over a budget tomorrow sometime. And if this works out as I hope it will I'll be recording live with the best there is - and he's a friend too.

Great news I had to share.

Where will we record? I'm leaning towards Knoxville,TN. There's a place there called New City Cafe that's always treated me right, always promoted well, always packed the place out and always attracts a good mix of all ages - college folk included. This being the Summer, getting college aged people to come out for a show will be difficult but if anyone can do it it's New City Cafe. Who'd be willing and able to come out to a show in Knoxville in the next couple months? (PS, I haven't exactly asked the folks at New City about all this yet so...shhhhh.)

I'm about 5 hours away from New City Cafe and would definitely love to make the roadtrip for this. Keep us apprised!

Road trip to Knoxville hey the youth group will be on the way let us know when I will drive a van up

shaun, you don't even have to ask if i'd be able to go...i'd do whatever it took to get to k-town (or wherever you end up recording). if possible, try to keep it within about 6 hours of nashville...and if you ever come up to the 3rd floor of the provident building, come say hi to me.

Hey, you thinkg we could Shanagle a van from TPC to take all of IKON that wanted to go?
or something of the sort?
I'm gona ba there I hope either way... unless I have to goo to Phoenix. which I might, but I'm sure you'll keep us all informed!

I'll be there in August....

I'll be very close to there with my family the week around July 4. If you play that week, we'll definitely make an effort to be there. I might even bring friends.

i'm not kenny woodhull or anything...but, knowing the current state of the cafe, i would say that you could probably pick whatever date you wanted, and it would be open to you. But, if you really want it to be successful, shoot for a date on a friday or saturday in late august(ut classes start back on the 23rd, and the first football game is sept. 2nd). This way, we'll have all summer to talk it up and promote it.
