VIDEO EXAMPLES


Tour Diary — Boz Scaggs Sum­mer 2011

I have the good for­tune of work­ing as an audio tech for Boz Scaggs and his band. I shot some footage over the last few weeks of tour, and made this lit­tle video.

Time Lapse — The­atre at West­bury — Boz / Mike

This is a time lapse of the Boz Scaggs / Michael McDon­ald show, The­atre at West­bury, West­bury NY, July 23rd 2011.

This the­ater is “in the round” : the stage spins dur­ing the show.

Includes doors, por­tions of both sets, and load-out.
