Garry Brown at the Vegoose festival stop

Held over Halloween weekend, this year's Vegoose festival (Las Vegas) saw four stages hosting top talent such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, the Black Crowes, the Mars Volta and The Killers, among others. Mix caught up with Trey Anastasio and Phil Lesh's engineer, Garry Brown, about the festival stop. “As we were already out on tour, we had our own board groups and stage package,” Brown says. “But for the last night at the festival site, we only used our monitor console, a Yamaha PM5D, and stage package, d&b M2 wedges. The festival P.A. company was Eighth Day Sound — also our touring company — which made things very easy. I used Widespread Panic's console. We are both using the Digidesign VENUE, so instead of having two sitting next to each other at FOH, I just brought my file on a USB stick. That made life easy!”

For this stop, Brown contended with mixing for both Anastasio and Lesh simultaneously while the two jammed with keyboardist John Medeski. “So it was an adapted mix,” Brown explains. “The biggest thing was making sure that the low end was tight and even.”
