Camp Runinmuck

I snuck a show in there for this weekend...  This Sunday, July 27th I will travel to the rock of Lakeside Marblehead, Ohio where I will play a few sets for the people of Camp Runinmuck from 2:00pm-6:00pm.  I have had the pleasure of playing a handful of times at Camp Runinmuck a couple of years ago and it lends itself to be a good time.  Some fun people always seem to show up.  For more info on Runinmuck, check here.  Maybe I will see you this weekend!

Next week brings me close to home in downtown Perrysburg where I will be at Swig on Thursday night and Stella's Friday night.

Calendar

I love technology...

It seems we all have one of these smart devices in our pockets most of the time.  So, if you would like to be able to know when I am playing a show all of the time using your smart device without having to head to this here website all the time, you can do that.

If you are an Apple user, send an email to jason@jasonlaporte.com and let me know what iCloud email you would like me to share my "Jason shows" calendar with and I will share the calendar as soon as possible.

If you are an Android user, head to your Google Calendar and add a new calendar using the "Add by URL" feature under the "Other Calendars" tab and use this URL: webcal://feeds.artistdata.com/ical.shows/artist/AR-3AF73FF05BB19CF6/icalgmt

It's a beautiful thing.

For those of you that use Apple, your calendar will always be accurate up to the second since I also use Apple iOS as my main calendar.  Android users, your calendar will be accurate as soon as I update my ArtistData website, which I always try to do as soon as possible.

Hope you all enjoy and can use this to your advantage when you are out and about and it dawns on you that maybe you are due for a Jason show! Much love and appreciation...

Bose

I am kind of a gear nut and a perfectionist when it comes to sound. My day job allows me to hear and see some of the best sounding gear when it comes to home audio/video which definitely carries over to my live sound when I am playing out or recording. A little over four years ago, I decided to purchase one of the Bose line array systems for my live setup and I am constantly reminded how good of a decision that was. The setup of the system is quick and easy, hauling the gear is a breeze, and the continual comments I get on the quality of the sound always puts a smile on my face. It allows me to not have to be super loud, but to be heard from all areas of a room evenly with the way a line array system works. The system constantly surprises me. On top of all that, through my day job, I am now able to sell these things! I was recently reminded of how good a decision it was to purchase the Bose line array. I continually desire to perfect my live looping setup. Something that will probably never be "perfect," but something I strive for. I contacted Tim, the Bose rep for my day time A/V company, who is not even in their pro division, but was still on the spot with helping me with the questions I had. When I sent the email, I got the auto response that he was out of the office on a marketing trip and would not be able to answer emails quickly. Much to my surprise, what seemed like only 15 minutes later, PJ with Bose L1 customer support was asking for me on the phone. PJ offered expert advice on how to setup up my loop station (which isn't even a Bose product) in correlation with my Bose PA. He was patient with my questions, understood my desire for having the system work the way I wanted to (which it does), and understood my desire for perfection. Long story short, I guess I can't say enough nice things about Bose as a company. Previous to the research I did when buying the Bose PA, I had a negative outlook on the company. I followed the thought that they were merely a corporate money making scheme type company. They are at the top of their market, but from what I find, for good reason. At least from my experience as a musician at night and working in the custom A/V field during the day, they take care of their customers and stand by their product. That's good stuff.
