Jeff Waful + 1 – Ep. 3: Tour Managing My Morning Jacket @ MSG

When was the last time you went up to a band’s tour manager and thanked them for the invaluable job they did in putting on the concert you just saw? Yeah, I haven’t done that either. Yet a tour manager’s job, while thankless, is clearly one of the most important positions in the live music industry as displayed by the third episode of’s Jeff Waful + 1.

In this episode, which I produced, Umphrey’s McGee LD/Relix reality show host Jefferson Waful shadows My Morning Jacket tour manager Eric Mayers on the day of the band’s sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden last December. By the end of the episode we get a feel for just how many issues come up for Mayers as he navigates through his eventful day. From venue layout to guest ticketing to laminate dispersal to making sure a CBS News team has enough, but not too much, access to the band members to the guilt he feels leaving his family at home, Eric Mayers sure has to deal with plenty of stressful situations. For those of us who always wonder about what goes into putting on the rock shows we love, this episode gives us the behind-the-scenes look we crave…
