Buena Park, CA (May 27, 2014)—Northwestern University’s annual Philfest, a collaboration between A&O Productions and Students for Ecological and Environmental Development (SEED), tapped Frankfort, IL-based Sound Works Productions to provide audio production for the festival.
Held in honor of Phil Semmer, a former SEED member, who passed away while studying abroad, Philfest features bluegrass and folk music as part of an effort to promote environmental awareness and also raises money for the Rocky Mountain Institute, a non-profit aimed at the sustainable use of resources.
This year, the sound company provided five Nexo GEO S12s flown, two RS18s Ray Subs per side ground stacked with two Nexo PS10s speakers used for front fills, all driven with their Nexo NX4x4 amp rack. A Yamaha M7CL was used at front of house with an LS9 at monitors. The Deadly Gentleman from Boston headlined, followed by Sunnyside Up and Todd Kessler.
“The GEOS12 system sounds amazing, is easy to setup and fly from a mobile SL100 stage, and gets the coverage we need for the Norris Center East Lawn,” said Sam Boren, Vice President of Business Development, Sound Works Productions, Inc.
