    With his upbeat lyrics and catchy pop hooks, Andy Grammer makes you just want to snap your fingers and dance. That’s given him sales and airplay hits like “Honey, I’m Good,” “Keep Your Head Up” and the new chart-climbing “Fresh Eyes,” which have gotten him exposure on TV shows like Dancing With The Stars and at multiple sporting events, including a very recent halftime performance during the Detroit Lions’ 2016 Thanksgiving game. It’s also made Grammer a welcome addition on… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   For the novice sound engineer, it can be pretty intimidating to walk up to a large analog or digital console and try to figure out the routing of audio signals. It wouldn’t be so bad if the only place the sound had to go was to the main loudspeakers in the room. Occasionally that’s the case, but most of the time, we’re also sending different mixes to monitors for musicians; to lobby and… View this post

    For over a decade, Cairo Jazz Club has been attracting artists, both home-grown and international, and helping to launch new talent. As such, it has been instrumental in the evolution of Cairo’s independent music scene. In July this year, it closed its doors for its annual renovations, re-opening with a fresh look and brand new L-Acoustics loudspeakers. The new system, which comprises a combination of L-Acoustics ARCS Wide and X Series loudspeakers, was designed and installed by Heliopolis-based Audio Technology,… View this post

    Ray Luzier moved to the Nashville area over two years ago to take part in its music scene, a way to keep his career as the drummer for Korn (as well as other artists including David Lee Roth, Metal Shop [now known as Steel Panther] and KXM) in high gear and let his family enjoy the culture – a change from Los Angeles, to be sure. One of the first things he did in his new home was convert several… View this post

    Like many sound engineers, I have a background in music, so I’ve been on both sides of sound checks and know how annoying a poorly-run check can be for musicians. These experiences have led to a paradigm shift in the way I approach sound checks: they’re for the artists, not the engineers. On the road, practice time is in short supply, so many artists prefer to use their stage time to rehearse new material, tweak the backline, and tighten up… View this post

The festival, which featured sets by jungle artists such as R3HAB, Knife Party and Adventure Club, was supported by loudspeakers from Outline. For the second consecutive year, Guangzhou Haona Audio Equipment was the festival’s audio supplier. As well as lasting longer than in the past… View this post

    Dickinson Independent School District serves areas of greater Houston. Its high school team plays at Sam Vitanza Stadium, which seats over 6,000 fans. Until recently, however, an underpowered sound reinforcement system (repeatedly driven to failure for want of enough SPL) cast an odd sense of inadequacy over the games and their participants. A well-attended demo of a Jericho Horn from Danley Sound Labs convinced Dickinson ISD officials that a single Jericho Horn would put the situation right, as indeed its… View this post
