Jersey City, NJ (August 3, 2006)–Big Mo Pro, Inc. (BMP) of Parsippany, NJ, recently supplied audio for two events at Liberty State Park on Jersey City’s waterfront, including the LibertyJAM concert featuring Cheap Trick, George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic, Los Lobos, Patti Smith, The Smithereens, Fab Faux, John Eddie and Exit 105. Also, the company handled audio duties for the park’s Independence Day festivities, which culminated with a live synchronized performance by the New York Pops in Manhattan accompanying Macy’s 30th Annual Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. In both cases, BMP fielded an L-Acoustics Kudo rig.
The Big Mo Pro crew getting ready to hoist a Kudo array for the LibertyJAM concert at Liberty State Park.LibertyJAM was held to raise funds to benefit The Friends of Liberty State Park, a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to preserving and improving the park for free public use. For concert sound reinforcement, BMP chose to fly a twin pair of 15-box Kudo arrays. “Kudo was perfect for LibertyJAM,” said BMP CFO Glenn Radler. “Not only was it an ideally sized enclosure, both in terms of physical hang and throw for a crowd of this size, but the fidelity of the box is exceptional–especially when used in conjunction with our Lake DSP units.”
Down on the 50′ x 40′ Stageline SAM550 stage augmented with numerous extension decks, BMP additionally deployed 16 L-Acoustics 112XT stage wedges plus two 115XT on the drum risers over subs.
According to BMP President Greg Rosenkrans, “Big Mo Pro was one of the first companies in the US to buy Kudo more than a year ago, and now we’re looking to add even more enclosures to our inventory this fall. It’s become our main ‘workhorse’ large enclosure here and we love it for its versatility. We use them in traditional array form, put them on their sides for alternate dispersion, use them in ‘three packs’ for delays – you name it. We’ve used Kudo in just about every possible configuration and application it was designed for and it’s been amazing.”
Big Mo Pro has also recently used its Kudo and 112XT enclosures on shows for Michael Cavanaugh, Buddy Guy with Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Aretha Franklin, Train, The Go-Go’s, The 2006 Peabody Awards, Barry Manilow, The New Cars, Wynton Marsalis, Sara Evans, The Dixie Chicks, Paul Simon, and numerous corporate industrial shows.
