Van’s Warped Tour

Van's Warped Tour

Spent Saturday educating myself on the current alternative music trends at Van’s Warped Tour. I wasn’t performing (for obvious reasons,) but got invited through an ex-student of mine, Kevin Broce. Kevin took my Pop/Rock Songwriting and Music Industry class in high school and discovered he could pursue a career in music. He graduated from Chico State this year in Sound Engineering and Music Industry and has been interning every summer with Van’s Warped Tour. He worked his way up to house sound this summer and did an excellent job at the Ernie Ball Stage.  He is moving to LA this fall after the tour and is looking for a club or band that might want to hire. He also does instrument teching. He’d be an incredible asset to any band. By far the best sound of the day came from his board. He’s got talent!
