The stage and crew arrived early and were greeted by the Friday Night Main Event personnel. We quickly got the So Bright SL260 stage in place and started opening it up.
A skid steer arrived for unloading the stage. (It was loaded with production). I was a bit taken back. It was being driven by a boy maybe 11 or 12 years old. His dad was walking along beside him as he drove. I looked at his dad and said “Is he capable of this? I can’t have him hitting the stage or dropping gear.” The dad assured me that his boy was well experienced. I informed him “I’ll give him a try but to be ready to jump in and operate it.” It was one of the best jobs I had ever seen unloading the loading gear. Great job buddy. Hank Jr. said it best “A Country Boy Can Survive”.
The So Bright crew went to work getting the stage in the air and production added. I am thankful that we purchased amazing gear like the Stageline SL260 and JBL Pro Sound VTX V20 line arrays. It makes everyone happy!
Jon arrived in his new bus on schedule. They unloaded their gear and got it on stage with ease. Sound check was flawless and Jon’s crew was great to work with.
The show was amazing and Jon Langston played for almost 2 hours. After the show Jon stuck around for another hour or more just greeting his fans. He loves what he does and it shows.
