    Puerto Rican reggaeton singer/songwriter/producer and actor Daddy Yankee recently performed his version of urban music to an enthusiastic audience of approximately 18,000 people at the Center Court of the Hotel Lifesyle Holiday Vacation Club with sound reinforcement compliments of D.A.S. Audio line arrays. The Center Court is one big outdoor performance venue, so when the crowds approach the maximum 20,000 person capacity—as they did for the Daddy Yankee concert—a serious sound reinforcement system was required.

    For fans of heavy metal, one of the genre’s meccas this fall was Mexico City, which hosted the Corona Hell & Heaven Metal Fest on October 25.

Over that time, Chance (full name Chancelor Bennett) has gone from being a voice-and-DJ act to having a full live touring band. However, one thing has… View this story
