2016 Shitty Barn Producers Interview
At the end of the 2015 season, Shitty Barn co-founder Chris Staples announced that he was stepping away from day to day management of the Barn. Spring Green-ers Mike Lashua, Allen DeSchepper and Jason Frazier were among the small group of Barn friends that volunteered to continue the work that Staples started “quite by accident” back in 2010. Lashua, DeSchepper and Frazier split up booking duties between them for the 25-gig season. Lashua is also a veteran Barn sound man. Frazier will be tending to the Barn’s facility and maintenance needs. And DeSchepper will be responsible for filling Staples’s shoes in the “hospitality” department, which he defines as “keeping the bands and the people happy.”
