Joel Schoepf pulls the Trigger

When we go see some of our favorite bands play live shows, we don't always think about the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. Joel Schoepf is one of these highly talented folks that has seen many miles on the road and is VERY skilled at making sure all the T's and I's are taken care of. Joel spent a few years out with Cross Canadian Ragweed then Cody Canada and The Departed, plus he has worked with Jack Ingram, Roger Creager, Dickson Productions and is currently full time production manager at John T. Floore's Country Store.

This photograph was taken by Mike Fackler, who is production manager at ACL Live and a stage manager for Willie Nelson & Family. Mike is the stage manager for the main stage at Willie's 4th of July picnic. The photo shows Joel tuning up Willie Nelson's beloved Martin N-20 "Trigger" before Willie joined Neil Young plus Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real on stage at Whitewater Amphitheater on Tuesday, April 26th! Soak in the greatness of this photo, and think about how few people have likely been allowed to come within 5 feet of this legendary guitar!
