    Gigging with TouchMix and K Family - Bob Bonnen

    I'm mostly a solo performer, sometimes a duo or trio. Vocals, acoustic guitar, and harmonica playing at upscale resorts, private parties and corporate events. I've been a professional musician with performing as my sole source of income since 1989, and do from 3-6 gigs a week. I regularly do indoor or outdoor events with 20 - 250 people so I need a flexible sound system for different environments. I do my own setup and run my own sound. Currently I'm using QSC TouchMix-16 with two KW122 speakers and one K10 speaker. I may use any combination of speakers depending on the gig.

With the TouchMix and K10 setup and 3 big plastic bags I can secure my gear against rain in about…
