New York, NY (August 28,2015)—The 2015 edition of The Summerland Tour—Everclear’s annual package jaunt—has proven a success, clicking with critics and audiences alike. Making the rounds with with fellow Nineties alt rock stalwarts Toadies, Fuel and American Hi-Fi in tow, the tour also carried returning engineers and gear in many cases, too.
The tour, devised by Everclear frontman Art Alexakis, hit 30 different venues, mixing at each stop handled on Allen & Heath iLive-T112 control surfaces and iDR-32 MixRacks. Alexakis remarked, “We have used Allen & Heath for the last couple of years and the sound has just been phenomenal. I am so glad to be able to use them on every tour.”
According to Derek Steinman, production manager/FOH engineer for Everclear and the Summerland Tour, “We carry two Allen & Heath iLive T-112 surfaces and two iDR-32 mix racks for FOH and monitors. The board sells itself, and I can just hit the ground running. This console allows me to be connected to the band and get a focused mix at the same time.”
John Riley, monitor engineer/stage manager, added, “We only wanted this brand. It’s simple and I personally favor the side chain filters and side chain compressions.”
