The city of Rockwall hires me a few times a year to play the San Jacinto Music Series in downtown. Pay is good, crowd is good and tips are good.
I had my D-35 in full force and I had a Fishman SA220 as my PA. This little line array PA is absolutely killer. I would recommend this for the solo artist or the small band that needs something for smaller venues. You can run a mixer to it quite easily if you need more channels. Also you can run a monitor to it. It held its own in an outdoor scenario with a wide spread. I even brought my Roland Street Cube EX in case I need some additional reinforcement. Didn't use it.

Rockwall is a cool town D. We used to come over there a couple times a year. Mrs. West used to make and sell beaded jewelry and there used to be a supplier of beads and a place that taught the craft there in Rockwall. Gosh we've still got a closet full of turquiose, onyx, coral, malachite......all kinds of cool rocks from over there. I actually got in touch with my feminine side there and since I'd gone over with her, sat through one of the craft classes. If you swear not to tell anyone, I actually made several bracelets that she sold. But we like Rockwall. I've often wondered what happens when there's an accident on that I-30 bridge? Cool set up there, and yes, believe me, I know it was HOT! On top of the 100 plus temps for about 7 weeks now, here where I live, we've had 1/8th of an inch of rain since mid May.

Very cool WRL! I love turquoise and onyx for jewelry. Good stuff. Yeah we have been out here for 13 years and we like it a lot. Downtown has really blossomed in the last 5 or 6 years. This music series also draws a really nice crowd. You can bring your own cooler of adult beverages and pick up food form one of the 4 or 5 independently owned eateries on the square. Hot is putting it mildly. Yeah the yard is getting a beating for sure - as is my electric bill.

Let me know when you do it again D. We're 100 miles east of you, and just might make the trip if it were on a 70-80 degree day. :)
