After working with SJM on the Viola Beach event back in March we where thrilled to be asked to provide the audio system for the home town show of Liverpool’s Simply Dylan. The event took place in the Auditorium at the Echo Arena to an almost sold out crowd.
From our initial contact with SJM, dBS Solutions project manager Chris Bogg provided a competitive quotation based on the artists specifications and designed a PA system suitable for the 800 seat auditorium. Working closely with Dylan’s touring engineer, the in house team at ACC and SJM we then adapted our quotation as more detailed information about the 10 piece ensemble became avalible.
dBS Solutions audio engineer Matt Chisholm designed a Martin audio W8LM system comprising of two hangs of eight line array elements along with supporting WS218x subwoofers and matching front fills. The on stage monitoring system comprised of a Midas Pro 2 console with Ohm TRS 112 compact wedge monitors to provide detailed monitoring to the artist without obscuring sight lines for those at the front.
The system was installed sensitively so as to remain incepting with the surrounding ascetics of the venue and the dBS team where on hand to ensure any issues on the day where felt with swiftly. The event went well with us receiving several great comments regarding the sound quality.
We look forward to working with SJM and Simply Dylan in the future.
