Helping Out at The Loft Live!

Many Columbus residents who enjoy live music know that the Loft is one of the best places in town to hear live music.  The CSU jazz and rock groups play there, and there’s always great musicians coming through the listening room and recording studio (The Heavy, Marshall Ruffin, and Willie Nelson to name a few).  From January 1 to January 17, the Loft’s upstairs club space was closed for renovations.  I’m happy to be part of the team redesigning, rewiring, and rethinking the sound system, along with Sam Phillips, Steve Meadows, Gavin MacDougall, and the incomparable Maurice Owens (Mr. O, if you know him).  This photo is the new stage about 30 minutes before reopening for stand-up comedy…  we were still wiring lights and sound circuits.  As my dad says, “Any creative activity will absorb 100% of the time allotted to it.”  Ain’t that the truth…

This past Friday night, the band that was scheduled broke down in Tifton.  Sam, Brad, and I got to jam out on the stage we helped build, with some sulrty guest vocals from the fabulous Nesrin Asli.  There’s more work to be done, but it’s up and running!
