Keeper of the Axe: The Life of a Veteran Guitar Tech
A chat with veteran touring guitar tech Jeramy “HooGie” Donais
Aug 22, 2018 • 26 minutes
On this week’s podcast, we give a preview of Thursday’s webinar with long-time touring instrument tech Jeramy “HooGie” Donais. HooGie has spent the last 20 years on the road as a guitar/bass tech for Gob, Shinedown, Sam Roberts Band, Finger Eleven, Theory of a Deadman, Staind, Lamb of God, and many more. This Thursday, Aug. 23, he will join Andrew for a free webinar entitled “Keep Your Guitar or Bass in Top Shape.” To register, go to www.nwcwebinars.com.
In this conversation with Mike, HooGie takes us through his career, starting as a wide-eyed 19-year-old on the road with Gob and how that snowballed into gigs with a wide array of other artists. He talks about maintaining his sanity and family life while travelling, some of the strangest things he’s seen musicians request, the importance of being a “good hang”, and what the typical day of a guitar tech looks like on tour.
