Big Daddy Love and Paper Thick Walls performed at the Northwestern University (Evanston, Illinois) 2012 Philfest held in mid-May.
The annual bluegrass concert, co-sponsored by A&O Productions and Students for Ecological and Environmental Development (SEED), is held in memory of Phil Semmer, a SEED member who passed away while studying abroad.
The event raises money for the Rocky Mountain Institute; an organization that researches more effective use of resources and that Semmer aspired to join after graduation.
Sound Works Productions of Frankfort, Illinois, not only staffed the event (Eric Lindholm at Front of House, Daniel Nickleski at Monitors and Kevin Flasza as Stage Tech), but also provided a NEXO GEO S line array for the main PA along with a Yamaha M7CL-48 digital console for FOH and LS9-32 for monitors.
The NEXO GEO S12 was configured as eight GEO S1210s, two GEO S1230s for mains, two PS10s used for front fills, four RS18 Ray Subs, and three 4x4 NXAmps.
“Every time our GEO S12 rig goes out it never ceases to amaze our clients,” says Nickleski. “The versatility, ease of set up, and the consistent sound quality are what keeps our clients coming back.”
