This month issue. I recently did an interview with Kevin Young of Live Sound. I have been a fan of this magazine my whole career. What an honor. Click the image to download the article.
A brief video highlighting some of the special qualities of L&M Sound & Light.
My friend Joe Miglionico played bass last night with his band. He asked me to bring my camera and take some shots. I had a great time! The band sounded really good while they played a fun mix of rock covers. The corner bar has a friendly feel, good drinks and hosts many styles of live acts. I truly recommend the band, the bar & a hang with Joe's friends. Check out The Vic Tavern, Bayonne and Illegally Blind (band). If you would like a copy of an original image (for printing,with no watermark) please send me an email and I'll email one back (files are large).
This is a small gallery recap of images from my last photography tour with 2 fabulous teachers. Charles Needle and Mary Louise Ravese from Napa Valley. I can not recommend my 2 teachers from Bryce and Zion unfortunately so I prefer not to publicly list them. Enjoy!

Last night was such an exciting event for all! Traveling to Firenze @K-array HQ and celebrating a year's worth of passionate hard work while introducing the newest most innovative products in the audio industry. I was so proud to be asked to be a part of this monumental evening. I wasn't aware that I would be honored with the "Ambassador of the Year" Award presented by Alex Tatini (president). They also included video footage of an interview I had done talking about how these creative products changed my company's profile. But the highlight was being introduced as the USA's driving force for the new Firenze line of concert products KH8, KS8 & KH7.
Alex Tatini and the crew at K-array have continued the tradition of the world's most creative works being produced in Florence, Italy.
Thank you so much for caring about what we have the privilage to do in a day's work. Also, thank you to everyone on the L&M team for working hard so I was able to make this trip. Without you this could never happen. Grazie' Lou
La Dolce Vita: The
Music of Italian Cinema
Joshua Bell, Renée Fleming, Josh Groban, Alan Gilbert, and the Philharmonic transport you into the sensual world of film classics including La Dolce Vitaand Cinema Paradiso as music from these lush scores is paired with whimsically evocative video animation.Martin Scorsese introduces the Sept. 16 concert. Also on the 16th, look up: the Empire State Building will be lit Philharmonic red!
I'm very excited about this audio design. Everyone involved clearly hears the difference.
Fall is such an exciting time. I'm setting goals, reaching a bit higher with each step. The last few days I began building a new audio design for the season opener of the New York Philharmonic Gala featuring Josh Groban.
I am confident with my ideas, combined with the help of the staff at K-array (Italia) am hopeful for a grand slam. Here are a few pictures of the practice build at my production facility of Staten Island. I know it's something no one has done before in Avery Fisher, but I am so excited for the musical outcome.

A fantastic birthday celebration last night at Sawa Restaurant in Pier Village, NJ. Almost 100 family and friends came to celebrate. Al & I performed, thanks Al. Thank you Lindsey, for planning it and making the margarita cupcakes. Thank you Cheryl, Eric and Marisa for all your hard work through out the night. To all my family and friends who drove long and far as well as my local friends.... Thank you! A special night. (11 photos)
I actually had a stranger come up to me in Sawa last week and ask "do you know anything about PIZZA NIGHT, what is it"? A person at the PV pool, "how do we get invited to pizza night"?. "I heard a guy brought his wood oven from NY to Cheryl and Eric's backyard".
Well I believe the word is out that we are having so much fun on Tuesdays in the summer of 2014'
Pizza Night starts at 8am when I drive to Staten Island to get my fresh ingredients: NY water, fresh yeast, Pastosa mozzarella, Esposito sausage, ricotta, basil etc. Then @12 start the making dough, @4 start the wood fire, @5 smash the San Marzano tomatoes, @6 prep the toppings, @630 first pie in the oven, the rest is a wonderful memory.
So, Pizza Night is family and friends around humble ingredients, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Amore'. Making Memories. A few pics of last Tuesday.
I enjoyed taken my camera out to photograph my family and friends on this beautiful night.
