Canegreen, a part of the SSE Audio Group, is providing Meyer Sound equipment to multiple top artists in this summer’s touring season.
A dealer and provider of Meyer Sound for more than 25 years, this year sees Canegreen/SSE Audio Group supporting artists as diverse as Tony Bennett, George Benson, Paul Weller, and newcomer Jessie J.
Another aspect that links current Canegreen/SSE clients: many of them are performing at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which hosted the annual BluesFest in June and for which Canegreen/SSE provided a Meyer Sound system.
The Royal Albert Hall, says Canegreen/SSE director Yan Stile, is a notoriously challenging environment for front-of-house engineers.
“The nature of the building,” he explains, “is its 360-degree coverage. It’s a really difficult place to cover.”
For BluesFest 2012, Canegreen provided a Meyer Sound system comprised of 28 MILO, four MILO 120, 32 MICA, and six M’elodie line array loudspeakers; six 700-HP subwoofers; and two Galileo loudspeaker management systems.
Benson performed at the Royal Albert Hall on June 28 with the support of Canegreen, which has also provided the legendary guitarist a touring rig featuring 24 MICA and six M’elodie line array loudspeakers; 10 700-HP and one USW-1P subwoofers; two MSL-4 loudspeakers; 10 MJF-212A stage monitors; and a Galileo loudspeaker management system.
Bennett performed at the Royal Albert Hall on June 30 and July 1. His touring rig includes 24 MICA line array loudspeakers, four 600-HP subwoofers, and two UPA-1P loudspeakers.
Canegreen is also providing Meyer Sound systems for longtime customer Paul Weller and rising star Jessie J.
Meyer, says Stile, “has always looked after us incredibly well. We look forward to a long working relationship.”
