Arie has been the best all in one tour service for our international artists! We’ve had the pleasure of working with him on large scale productions for club shows to festival stages on three continents. Arie is incredibly experienced in planning, budgeting and production with etiquette. But most importantly he always goes above and beyond in taking care of our artists so they can focus on performing their best shows yet.
From a manager’s perspective, Arie made things easy on us to the point of near-absurdity. He knows his way around every part of the live business: advancing, routing, logistics and planning, settlements, the list goes on. And those bullet points don’t even touch upon Aries considerable abilities as a front of house engineer and production manager. I’d write more but it would just be reiterations of these same themes. He’s an ideal fit.
Arie is the BEST! As a band we’ve done about 5 years of intensive touring and in that time we’ve never felt more taken care of than when we toured with Arie as our sound engineer/tour manager. He made us feel so comfortable on stage (our in-ear mixes were perfect every night) and was incredibly organized and always remained calm in dealing with any problems that arose. Touring can sometimes be a stressful experience, but Arie’s personality and professionalism made our tour with them such a breeze.
Arie was 1st class and had a huge impact on the overall success of our tour. Arie’s approach as a tour manager to managing the team, challenges, and as a sound engineer each night was extremely professional. We were very happy with the front of house results too.
