Michelle - Stage ManagerMusical Background:
I grew up listening to classic country and big band music. I wanted to play drums, but only took lessons for 6 months when my instructor came down with mono(not from me!) and I got side-tracked. I tried the trombone and choir while in school but was never really interested in it. I did take guitar lessons for 2 years starting when I was 19, but never really figured it out. Haven't played since, but I am interested in giving it a try again. I would also like to learn the piano, but who really has the time.
None really, although I can be heard singing before, during and after the shows. So if you ever hear an off note at a show, it's from me! Sorry, I will try to keep it down.
LED flashlight, pocket knife, duct tape, fencing wire, belt, Canon 30D, water, coffee, bananas and my rope.
Bon Jovi, George Strait, Randy Rogers Band, Pat Green, P!nk, Nickleback, Goo Goo Dolls, Sugarland, Shinedown, Third Day...I could go on, but I won't. Let's just say, I really like music.

Super Dave - CrewMusical Background: Absolutely none unless you want to count playing the trombone in junior high (and really poorly at that) as a musical background. I did sing quite a bit while on watch in the Navy. On a submarine in the middle of a patrol it is extremely boring so we spent many hours making up perverted songs. They don’t translate very well into civilian life.
Who would you like to play you in the movie about your life: Burt Reynolds in his Smokey and the Bandit Days. He wouldn’t need to wear his hairpiece.
Sound you love: A nice steady rain at night.
Sound you hate: Whining kids around my feet. The older I get, the worse it gets.
Job you would most love to try other then your current one: Sports columnist. Mainly football, hockey, basketball, baseball, etc., etc., etc. Either that or a Playboy photographer.
Favorite curse word: Of course the very popular F-Word! It must be said with conviction to be used properly. Although I am not nearly as talented in using it as Raven.
What CD is currently in your car player: I never listen to them so there isn’t one. I would first have to figure out how to use it.
Last good movie you saw: Apocolypto
Favorite State Fair Food: Corn dogs
