    In choosing its touring sound reinforcement system, the Wanderlust Yoga Festival had very specific requirements: to provide both pristine vocal clarity for yoga instruction in the daytime and high-impact musical reinforcement for evening revelries. With the tour’s truck space and trussing constraints, the production also needed a system with an exceptional power-to-size ratio and versatility. All of this has led to the selection of a Meyer Sound MINA line array loudspeaker system, supplied by DBS Audio Systems of Coatesville, Penn.… View this story

    Miley Cyrus is currently on tour with her fourth and definitely most controversial album to date, Bangerz. On the tour, and for the first time, Cyrus is performing with the new Digital 9000 microphone system from Sennheiser. The album exhibits influences that shift dramatically between pop, hip-hop, funk, country, R&B and dance. The tour is equally eclectic and outrageous, featuring a giant hot dog, a troupe of dancing furry animals and cartoon characters, foam fingers and some very skimpy costumes… View this story

    New Zealand’s hit alternative rock band The Naked and Famous is touring the world with their Telefunken M81 dynamic microphones.  Following their performance at the Coachella Festival in April, the band tours Australia before returning to the States in May and June. “We discovered the Telefunken M81 while rehearsing at Bedrock Studios in LA,” recalled Aaron Short, who plays keyboards in the band.  “The big challenge on stage is getting the right rejection from the mic. We’re very loud onstage… View this story

    Jamie Kent is a cut above the average singer-songwriter. Not merely an acclaimed musical act and creative voice with soulful and rootsy influences, Kent is fiercely independent and entrepreneurial, creating a unique business model (known as “The Collective”) that has helped him build his fanbase from the ground up. He has since expanded “The Collective” concept to “The Collective Music Group,” which sees Kent consulting other artists on how to build their fanbases after Kent’s example. As he tours the… View this story
