Egg Harbor Township, NJ (March 19, 2010)—New Jersey native Al Di Meola returned to the Garden State to play a sold-out show, aided by d&b Audiotechnik, K-Array and Yamaha gear from ACIR Professional.
A bona fide guitar hero, Al Di Meola has also been recognized over the past 30 years as a prolific composer and respected artist with over 20 recordings. So when he performed in late January at the 2,000-seat Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ to a standing-room-only crowd, ACIR Professional (Egg Harbor Township, NJ) was hired to handle sound production.
The system for the Di Meola show included d&b audiotechnik’s Q-1 line array, Q subs, d12 amps, and K-Array Red Line 200s for side fills. The band’s front of house engineer mixed on a Yamaha PM5D-RH digital console while ACIR’s Ed DiBona mixed monitors using a second PM5D-RH.
“The band was very happy with our ACIR 152 wedges, and everyone was impressed with the new K-Array Red Line 200 speakers used for side fills,” states ACIR’s DiBona. “It was a great night and the audience thoroughly enjoyed it."
