One of the performers at the Indie Rock Wards bellows through an EV mic.New York (June 3, 2008)–Electro-Voice and Dynacord recently co-sponsored the first annual Live Indie Rock Wars in Lake Las Vegas, NY; the event showcased 21 bands up-and-coming bands in the running for the $50,000 grand prize and a two-year management deal. The winners of the event, The Underground Rebels, also won a complete EV mic package.
Pro audio rep Buck Tallman was on site to support the show: “This is what it’s all about! A live, full-bore rock n roll war! We were there to provide hands-on support and meet the bands–we’re committed to supporting new talent, and that fact was heard loud and clear over the course of the competition. It was an awesome event, all bands sounded great and we were very proud to be a part of it.”
The audio system, supplied by FBP Group of Las Vegas, included a Midas Verona at FOH, a Midas Siena at Monitors, and a slew of EV mics on hand, including N/D967 and N/D767a vocal mics; Raven and Cardinal instrument mics; N/D478 instrument mics; RE200 condenser mics; and N/D868 kick drum mics and N/D468 drum mics. EV gear was represented with SxA250 stage monitors and P3000RL amplifiers, while Dynacord Cobra-4 boxes comprised the main PA. Also at the mix positions were Klark Teknik Square One graphics and dynamics, and DN370 EQs
