Ed Waldick, Lighting Designer, Road & Stage Manager Passes
December 5 - Ocala, Florida

Ed Waldick a longtime associate of Media Five, originally from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where he first started working in the Music Industry with Dan Hartman's first band The Legends, passed on December 5 in Ocala, Florida where he had lived and worked over the last 20 years. His long association with Media Five began in the early 70s coming off working with one of the most popular recording artists of the time, The Edgar Winter Group and his friend lead vocalist, keyboardist, song writer and producer Dan Hartman in different capacities touring the world.

After managing the Listening Booth Record Store in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Ed went back to the live music business and brought all his expertise to the top regional bands playing the Eastern Seaboard. Beginning with Magnum as the lighting designer and road manager, then Witness as monitor engineer and followed by Fury as the lighting designer, operator and road manager.

In the early 80s Ed moved to South Florida where Media Five called upon him to set up their Florida booking operation where he was was a liaison with premier Florida venues. It was in Fort Lauderdale at Summers on the Beach during multiple residencies with the band Fury that Ed garnered attention, both with regional and national acts, for his unique visual stage production of creative lighting and stage sets.

Relocating to Ocala, Florida in the mid 90s, Ed connected with regional musicians and national touring acts as he worked for Christie Lites and later Eve to Adam to name a few. He was currently working on The Music of Pink Floyd Laser Light Show to launch his own tribute. WCJB TV 20 this week did a three minute tribute titled, "Music Scene Loses a Legend" to Ed saluting the work he did to support the local music scene from young musicians to national stars in the Gainesville area.

A consonant professional that was always "on" with energy and heart like very few, Ed was very giving and it was always with his trademark smile.

This past September he lost his wife Jan and is survived by his daughter Lindsey and his son Ian, a lawyer, who was recently married. A memorial show for Ed Waldick is set for January 28th at O'Malley's Alley in Ocala, Florida hosted by the band Under the Covers.
