Night Ranger Mix Was a Mess 

Night Ranger is a great '80s band. They deserved a better venue and sound production for their recent show for the Bend Summer Festival. Who's ideal was it to have a concert at Troy Field? Bad choice.

How did they ever expect people to get in and out of a single three-foot. gate? And now crowd control to boot. OMG, who was running the [front of house] mix?

I realize that we live in a MP3 generation but please the mix was a muddled, boomy mess. You have one of the best guitar teams out of the '80s with eight-finger tapping techniques, etc. and you couldn't distinguish the guitars until [you moved] two blocks away - let alone the vocals. I am sure the band played great, but who could tell. I am not one of those who wants to turn down the volume. I like loud blazing guitars, but I actually want to be able to hear them.

Sadly disappointed.

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
