Bend's Midtown Ballroom Robbed This Weekend

More than $4,000 in gear was stolen from the Midtown this weekend.

The regional rock music business isn't as glamorous or cash-loaded as some might think. In fact, a lot of times, shows here in Bend are put on by promoters and acts making a personal sacrifice in order to bring us the live music so many of us crave.

That's why the news we received today that the Midtown Ballroom was robbed this weekend really pissed us off.

The theft occurred sometime after Floater's set on Friday night and before their sound check for their encore performance the following evening. Stolen were $4,000 worth of microphones and other equipment belonging to Sonic Solutions and two electric-acoustic guitars owned by Floater.

Midtown management is offering an $800 reward for the return of the audio gear and another $800 for the guitars.

If you're the person or persons who did this, you are a jerk (or jerks). You should really return this stuff because you're not stealing from massively huge rock stars. These people have families that depend on this gear. Give it back.

If you have any information about this robbery, call Random Presents at 541-388-8111.

Here are the details of the stolen gear:

AUDIO GEAR: AKG 451 Stereo Pair, Shure KSM137 Stereo Pair, Two Sennheiser 421’ DI Boxes: Two Radial JDI Radial JDI Duplex.  
: Takamine Electric Acoustic Guitar (Peter has had this guitar since he was 12 years old) and Michael Kelly acoustic bass, jumbo body with custom abalone inlays.
