Hollywood, FL (January 17, 2007)–Deep in the middle of the season of giving, South Florida’s bi-annual In the Garden of Dreams Gala recently raised over $1 million for cancer research at the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Held at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida, on December 9th, attendees were entertained by R&B sensation Ruby Baker, hearing her through a good-sized EV PA system.
The in-the-round EV rig at the recent In the Garden of Dreams Gala.Tropics Entertainment and U of M/Sylvester contacted Drummer Boy Sound of Miami for production services. “The organizers wanted to do something a little different,” said Harold Cummings of DBS, “they planned to have Ruby perform on a 24’x24′ centered stage in middle of the hotel’s grand ballroom. The ballroom was configured to hold 1,800 people, sitting around all four sides of the stage to enjoy Ruby and her eight-piece band.”
For house sound, six EV QRx112/75 speakers were flown on a circular truss above the central stage; eight EV ZX1, two powered EV Plasma P1 and three QRx 112/75 boxes served as monitors and stage fills, while four Dynacord Cobra SUB boxes handled the low end. The show was mixed on a Midas Legend
“This was the first time I was able to use my newly acquired EV CP4000S on my Dynacord SUB subwoofers,” Cummings adds, “and all I can say is ‘amazing.’ This is the amp I have been waiting for: small, powerful, light… it really delivers!”
“The organizers, Ruby Baker–who said ���DBS is the only sound company that make me sound amazing’–and Ruby’s agent, Tropics Entertainment, told us the sound was awesome and beyond professional. That makes it all worthwhile! Everyone was really happy with our production services, and plans are being made for us to handle future fundraisers.
