Westlake Village, CA (November 18, 2003)–TC Electronic will put up for auction on eBay a gold anodized collector’s edition Lab.gruppen fP6400 power amplifier and will donate the proceeds to the John Muldowney Memorial Fund. The auction will be held from Monday, November 17 to Wednesday November 26 on eBay and can be found by searching for “Lab.gruppen fP6400.”
John Muldowney, a well-known and much-respected live soundman and audio engineer, died suddenly November 2 from a heart attack shortly before sound check at a concert for World Peace. Also known by colleagues as Johnny Moe or Moe, Muldowney worked live sound for nearly 30 years on concerts ranging from Bruce Springsteen to David Lee Roth and from Shania Twain to New Kids on the Block. Muldowney co-founded the sound production company Scorpio Sound Systems with Gary King.
“When Gary told us about the memorial fund that had been set up for John’s family, I knew right away we would help. By donating the amplifier we hope more people will become aware of John’s contribution to the live sound industry and the help his family needs just now,” says Ed Simeone, president of TC Electronic. “We chose the eBay forum as the best place to see an immediate result and all proceeds from the amp will go directly to the John Muldowney Memorial Fund.” According to Simeone, the custom gold-anodized Lab.gruppen amplifier is one of a very small number that were made and it comes packaged in a box signed by all the Lab.gruppen employees.
Additional donations in John’s memory can be made to: John Muldowney Memorial Fund c/o Rockland Trust, Attn.: Dave Thomas, 485 Belmont St. Brockton, MA 02301.
