    London-based Britannia Row Productions has been with singer/guitarist Robert Smith and The Cure for most of that time, since 1979, providing global touring support for the post-punk group, which is currently out on the road with L-Acoustics K1/K2 arrays.

One of many problems I run into (including the lead guitarist who insists he hears better with his knees)… I know that guy! And I… View this post

    In 2016, pop officially took over as the top revenue driver for live shows to the point that A-list engineers long associated with the biggest names in rock began a kind of mass migration to riding faders for pop acts. The list includes names like Tony Luna (from Five Finger Death Punch to Meghan Trainor), Toby Francis (ZZ Top, among many others, to Ariana Grande and Kanye West) and Ken “Pooch” Van Druten, who has been “the man” for Linkin… View this post

    Portable loudspeakers are amazing in their versatility, able to serve as mains, fills, delays, stage monitors and much more, providing solutions for hundreds of applications in live sound reinforcement. These 2-way miracle workers usually include an 8-inch, 12-inch or 15-inch ported woofer and a compression driver on a horn or waveguide, with dispersion (6 dB-down points) commonly at 40 degrees (v) by 90 degrees (h) or 40 degrees (v) by 120 degrees (h).
