Contemporary Productions 1977-1980 The Early Years

 

While all of my high school buddies were graduating, I was working on shows. 

I was hired by John Schmiemeier in 1977 to put up concert posters around the St. Louis area on telephone poles and in shop fronts.

I was 17, and had already dropped out of High School nearly a year at that point.

I worked on every major show that came thru St. Louis for a period of 2 years. I certainly learned the right way, from many pro roadies that are still around in the business to this day.
