During my time as a sound & lighting technician, I have had the pleasure of volunteering with local community group DD8 Music. For larger gigs (e.g. Bon Fest & Kirrie Ska Fest), DD8 Music use a PA system and FOH engineer from audioWAVE.
I volunteer as part of the Tech Crew at the Hebridean Celtic Festival every year.
I have also been to many gigs in the Dundee area, sometimes as a spectator, sometimes as anything from tech crew to live recording engineer. Such great acts include The Sellars Brothers - who have often featured Kevin Murray alongside them.
Also worth a look is Ricky Cocozza, a fantastic bass player I have had the pleasure of working with several times.
