dBS Solutions the Pups Nuts

Based on the hit animated TV series on Nick Jr. produced by Spin Master, PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” brings everybody’s favourite pups to the stage for an action-packed, high-energy, musical adventure. Featuring a cast of everybody’s favourite PAW Patrol characters and presented by TEG Life Like Touring, VStar Entertainment Group and Nickelodeon.


dBS Solutions where asked by the shows producers TEG Live  to provide a full touring audio solution for this children’s classic as its makes its way around the UK’s arenas last summer. With a wide range of venues from Wembley Arena to Edinburgh Playhouse we knew that the system we chose would have to be flexible, quick to deploy and sound great.

System Designer Chris Bogg designed a system of Martin Audio WPC main hangs (12) each side of the stage along with side hangs of (12) WPS. Front fills where the smaller Martin Audio WPM  with WS218x on subs duty.  Our system rack of IK42 amps made short work of driving everything allowing for the complex processing needed to deliver even coverage to every seat each day.

dBS Solutions system engineer Danny Clare worked closely with the shows Production Manager and the shows audio team to ensure that the system worked floorless each day.

The show was mixed on a Digico SD9 out front with our custom Qlab redundant systems. Radio mics where all DPA 4088 headsets on our Shure UHF-R systems with UR1-M packs. Comms was our wired ring intercom as well as wireless units from Altair.

With a great history of touring theatre at the highest level as well as our other daily touring work this tour was ideal for us to combine our unique packages for fast easy deployment together with our flag ship Martin systems with outstanding performance in what are some of the trickiest rooms in the UK for sound.

A big thanks to all the dBS Solutions team who worked to deliver this event.
