RLew's Loudspeaker Studio

Musical Background -

Attending Private Elementary School in the SF Bay Area, I was introduced to playing Brass Instruments which in turn spawned a love for all things music and later on various technical involvements in Live Sound productions. 

I had various musical talents enter my life that were either working in the industry or were outright and well known geniuses that all the more re-enforced my passion for this expressive art form.

Classic Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Alternative Grunge Rock,  Soul, Motown, Funk, Jazz, Blues,  Big Brass Band, Acoustic, Horn Rock, Hip Hop & EDM,  Electro Soul House being some of my most favorite genres to enjoy!  My parents both loved music and had a large part in my musical exposure level.

I seem to really enjoy Tracks that use heavy 4x4 drum beats with guitars, Hammond - Leslie Combo B3 Jazz Organs and Brass Instruments licks...  Used often in Classic Rock / Soul.  I really love loud hi-def classic percussion drums with funky riffs...  There used to be a local Radio Station known as 99.7FM KFRC (went offline in 2005) that I listened to from age 5 until they went offline - that station was a major influence in my musical exposure to Rock...
