Craig Vecchione - Contributing Editor

Craig's interest in music began in 4th grade with trumpet lessons and the elementary school band. He stuck with it until junior high, moving to trombone. The lure of the low end had taken hold. Always into rock 'n roll, when friends started a garage band he briefly tried guitar but took inspiration from bassists Chris Squire, Dee Murray, and John Entwistle. He picked up a bass guitar, and never looked back. Interest in live sound and production began with that little rock band. "It seems we spent half our free time practicing, and the other half trying to get a sound system together so we could play school dances."
Life and careers intervened and put hobbies on extended hiatus, but around 2001 while having lunch with coworkers Craig was asked to play bass guitar for a geezer band. He discovered Harmony Central while surfing through the staggering volume of online music material, and instantly was hooked by the Live Sound and Bass forums. Back when he got started, if you needed something for music, it was either in a book, or if you were extremely lucky, you knew a good musician. But for live sound, back in the day it was unheard of to have access to the pro's. "HC's forums gave me awesome info from real professionals I felt compelled to give back, so when I was offered the opportunity to be a moderator in 2006, I jumped at the chance...and as with bass guitar, haven't looked back."

Craig's professional careers have been quite varied; auto tech and service manager, computer programming (COBOL!) and IT support, and for the past two years he's been starting a small home improvements business. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
