This weekend we were with them for a charity fundraiser in Newcastle.  We provided all the sound for the band that were booked for the evenings entertainment.  This included two stacks of our D&B ‘C’ series professional sound systems for front of house (FOH) and some of our FBT’s as monitor mixes, for the band on stage. All the instruments we fully mic’d up.  This allows use to have the band turned down on stage and let us mix the band ‘out the front’ from the audience perspective, enabling us to create the perfect balance or ‘mix’.  We had a great night and are already looking forward to the next event.  The Charity Ball.  Check there website for details.
