Dave Hakes' – Maui Life


"I must do something!" will always solve more problems than "Something must be done"

Ziggy Marley @ The MACC

I actually started out the day dealing with the inside show (Maui Pops Orchestra) and a few other odds and ends. The actual Ziggy show was pretty much self-contained, which is not the norm – usually you’re really running around for these things. Don’t get me wrong, I was running around, but nothing compared to the norm…

Anyway, after Maui Pops ended I went inside to help them strike and get rid of the shell. From that point on, I was dealing with the Ziggy gig (which was good timing cause they showed up at that moment). The doors opened just as I was walking out…

I really don’t have anything to say about the show. Last time I actually was able to pay attention during a Ziggy gig was at the Milwakee Summerfest in 1990 – the crowd was totally different, the band was totally different, and I was totally different – the contrasts between now and then keep me from saying anything other than “Damn, that was loud!”

I had the Db meter in my hand at FOH for three songs – it wasn’t just me being old and crochety, it was loud…

And, “No” I’m not gonna tell you how loud it was…
