When Only GALE FORCE Will Do

Have you ever planned a party, organized a mixer or hosted a soiree? You know that feeling right before it starts, when everything is done (or not done) and all you can do is wait?

That’s when you need Gale Force Productions, an event and live music company producing events and music shows from a one-night solo band at Mother’s Saloon to a multi-day festival in San Felipe.

Founded, owned and operated by Nebraskan-turned-San-Diegan and card-carrying longhair Gale Hopping, GFP knows what it takes to make a show happen. From booking the bands and the venue and getting the contract, to the stage, lighting, sound and promotion, Gale Force Productions gets it done.

In addition to producing shows, GFP is the go-to resource for finding live music shows in San Diego. Here on The Longhairs Professional Series we dive into the San Diego live music scene, what it takes to produce a successful show, and why someone always misses the party bus.

From the grand vision to the minute details, get the full live music production breakdown with Gale Hopping on The Longhairs Podcast, Episode 34.


What You'll Hear About:

  • What it takes to produce a successful live music show

Predicting Big Wins

Not only did we cover all this ground, we gave Gale the hard sell on full production of the live music and entertainment program for The Great Cut. So when you show up and you’re blown away by the entertainment...you’ll know it was Gale Force Productions, delivering big wins for The Longhairs.

He’s not huffing and puffing, but he is a True. Music. Guy. Listen to Gale Hopping on The Longhairs Podcast, Episode 34.

  2. What a fun vocation. It doesn’t sound like a “job.” I’m not saying it’s not challenging, just “Do what you love and you never work a day in your life.” Wish there was a party bus for my last Yanni concert. 😉 The Mother’s-father thing is a total myth. My mother’s father was a cue ball. I get my hair from my dad. He’s 84 and his hair is as thick as mine, no balding. Gale’s voice is pleasant and engaging. He’d make a great emcee if the need arose.

    Another DOPE Let It Ride production…
