Minister of Propaganda: The deadline to confirm participation in the New Artist Showcase is Friday, February 24th. I am in charge of all things advertising. Our advertising committee, the Ministry of Propaganda, is a great way to get involved with the club; we produce flyers, chalk out on Skiles walkway, and more. You don’t have to be an officer to join. Also if you want to put up flyers, please do that. We have a lot of them.

Secretary: I organize and send out meeting minutes. If you need to join Orgsync or get on the mailing list, come talk to me.

I run Open Mic nights every Thursday from 8:00 to 11:00, with signups at 7:30. I’m also in charge of live sound, so if you’re interested in learning more about that, come talk to me. I teach live sound classes Sundays at noon. I also run the YouTube channel, so if there’s anything you want to see, or you want to get involved with filming or photography, come talk to me.

General Manager: I am working on updating all of the contact info around the space. Also, if anyone knows a good local piano tuner, come talk to me. From here on out, the General Manager position will be more of a liaison with other GT organizations. I am also in charge booking for all GT Orgs events at GT Orgs must pay for a sound engineer to work the space. Further details are on the website.

I also run the studio, so if you need anything recorded, or have any questions about the space, come talk to me.  I have been working on organizing the lockers. We may have one locker open. By next meeting, I should have a complete list of lockers for use. I am planning on making moves in terms of improving the space soon. Major improvements include upgrading the cymbal kit for the drums.

Studio Manager: I run the studio. The studio is now open. It’s a resource for students to produce music in. The rates are up on the website. Studio sound class will be this Sunday; this weeks topic will be recording drums. Live sound class is from 12 – 1 on Sundays and Studio Sound is from 1 – 2

Equipment Management Notice

Drums at UTC by far take the most abuse of everything, especially with all the moving people do with them. In order to keep parts on the sets and to not lose them I’d ask that you try and keep the sets where they are (green in the practice room, blue on the stage) I don’t have a problem with swaps for your practice time if you want a different tom setup but when you are done please put them back as is. Again, from now on to maintain order (or some semblance of it) the blue set will be on the stage and the green set will be in the practice room. I’ll be reheading the toms every semester or so unless something drastic happens. Please let me know if a piece goes missing or a part breaks asap. Feel free to message or email me about it, I’ll usually reply immediately. Cymbals… This is where I personally tend to get peeved the most, mainly because cymbals I buy tend to get destroyed fairly quickly. If you have your own cymbals, please use those :). Remember that all this stuff is for everyone to use, so please treat it better than you would treat your own stuff. You get annoyed when you walk into the practice room and the drums are scattered everywhere from the previous person, so please dont do it yourself. I typically replace cymbals every year, I will be doing this year’s soon. We don’t have the money at our disposal to buy cymbals 2/3x a year. ・。゚[̲̅$̲̅(̲̅ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°̲̅)̲̅$̲̅]。゚.* Also please dont remove wingnuts and felts from the set and then not put them back later. Otherwise I’ll be upset: (ノ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ノ︵┻┻ . Sticks are in the space for your using, but honestly if you have your own use them. I’ll check every night I’m in the space for if there are sticks out and replace them if not.

String Instruments:

If you break some strings on something, let me know and I’ll restring it that night if I’m going to be in the space (75% chance, im there a lot more than you realize). Both basses are typically in the practice room during the day, and I’d prefer it to stay that way. So if you use the bass (either one) please put it back in the practice room when done. Same with the guitars, try and put them in the practice room after you are done.


If you really wanna learn the studio, talk to me and I’ll prolly let you tag along to recordings. Also just come to sound class. Also I get a lot more emails than you think about the studio, so I’ll get back to you ASAP when I get something.


Please turn stuff off.

That’s all I got, thanks guys.

PS: Take care of stuff or RIOT ╰〳 ಠ 益 ಠೃ 〵╯
