Chris Clifton, who made the PA choice for Brewer, explained, “We wanted to get a newer system, because we produce a lot of festivals and concerts throughout the year, and we were also interested in attracting bigger names. With an event center like the one we have, it’s important to have a powerful system to perform well for the bigger acts; now we have the opportunity to do production for some country artists and comedians in the upcoming touring months, because our equipment list fits nicely with rider requirements, and the performers know what they are getting with a McCauley rig.”
Clifton contacted Joe Adams of McCauley Sound’s representatives, Professional Sound and Lighting Products (PSLP), and soon 16 MONARC MLA3 cells were ordered, supported with turnkey racks built on CAMCO’s Vortex 6.0 amplifier platform. When the rig arrived on site, McCauley Sound’s Daniel Casado spent several days providing engineering support and helping Brewer Entertainment complete the build out of their system.
“We worked very hard together to get everyone trained and ready for their first show,” said Daniel. “We had already prepared the amps and speakers on a turnkey system. The actual set up was smooth and quick; I worked with Brewer to develop the display angles for the venue and it only took a few minutes to actually fly the system.”
The first show at the Coca Cola Center with its new production equipment was for grunge stallwarts Candlebox. Casado spoke with the band’s FOH engineer Brian Duffy, and noted, “Brian said he had mixed on McCauley line arrays in the past and told me he was glad to see one here. After the show, he said the sound for this show was great.”
