Joe Fiorello, a lead audio engineer at the church, is a production manager at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, and an accomplished recording and live sound engineer.
While Fiorello confesses to being an "old school mixer" who enjoys having 48 or 56 faders on a console right in front of him, a current theatre gig has him mixing in the orchestra pit on an iPad that is sync'd to a Yamaha M7CL. This allows him to hear what the audience hears, including the front and center fills. He says that the Mackie system seems to be the next logical step in the shift to wireless mixing. "The advantages to not having a physical mixing console are vast, including no loss of seats in the prime seating area," he says. "Not having to deal with cumbersome snakes when set-up time is a premium is also a huge win. And as an added bonus, because the unit is onstage with the rest of the backline gear, the chance of running up against ground loop issues from multiple power sources decreases: "There's less chance for the guitarist to get a shock when they step up to the vocal mic. The mixer also enables musicians with iOS devices to control their own monitor mixes, and their access to it can be restricted to their aux send. Wireless mixing from a tablet isn't without its challenges, however. "At a church," Fiorello describes, "it's not uncommon to have a situation like this: the praise team has just completed their bit, you see the pastor in the wings getting ready to come up to deliver his message. "We've only had the Mackies for a few weeks, so it's a little early to tell as I'm still tuning them to the room, but they definitely have a lot of horsepower," Fiorello says.
Kim is not only performing with The Disciples of Sound, but has finally found her calling as a ROCK Singer in her cover band called Atomic Krush along with Joe and Chris.
Joe Fiorello - Lead Guitar, Musical Director Joe Fiorello was raised in Queens NY. At the age of eight years old he watched a band on TV called "The Bay City Rollers", saw all the women going crazy over these musicians, and said to himself, "that's what I want to do for the rest of my life" Shortly there after, he was introduced to the rock group KISS, and never looked back again. By the age of eleven he learned how to play his first song "Stairway to Heaven". From that point forward, he took lessons on and off from a local guitar instructor, but pretty much is self taught. He learned music theory by purchasing books on the subject. Joe was in love with his guitar and practically slept with it. He would practice at an average of six to eight hours daily. By the age of fourteen he was playing clubs and parties around the neighborhood with various bands. At the age of seventeen he joined a band called "Rumor Haz It" which almost got signed to Geffen records, but due to greedy management the deal was squashed. At the age of nineteen he joined a band called "White Trash". Due to creative differences and such, Joe left the band. Joe has played as a studio musician; recording music ranging from jingles to up-and-coming Rock and Pop acts. He was mainly playing bass guitar during that time. Some of the music went on to be played on the day time soap opera "General Hospital" Now Joe is playing lead guitar for DB King and The Disciples of Sound, and his rock cover band Atomic Krush along with Kim and Chris who are also fellow members of The Disciples of Sounds.
