dBTechnologies Powers Exclusive Release Party For Andy Grammer
FOH engineer Adam Robinson covers event for Spotify fans and VIP guests at the No Vacancy speakeasy with Ingenia IG3T loudspeakers and DVA KS10 subwoofers.
Andy Grammer, multi-platinum pop artist and songwriter known for infectious hits such as “Keep Your Head Up” and “Honey I’m Good,” held a special album release event last month for Spotify fans and VIP guests at the intimate No Vacancy speakeasy in Hollywood, CA with reinforcement from dBTechnologies.
A venue chosen specifically for its ambiance and unique atmosphere, it posed a challenge for front of house engineer Adam Robinson. While the Victorian-era mansion provided the perfect vibe, fitting a whole band plus backup singers onto the back porch was daunting enough without taking the placement of loudspeakers into account – especially since No Vacancy is located in a residential neighborhood with strict sound codes.
“We needed a big sound in a small space,” says Robinson, “so when I researched Ingenia and came across the ability to stack the speakers and then steer the horns down ten degrees to keep them off of the back wall it looked like a very good fit for this show.”
In addition to the stacked Ingenia IG3T, Robinson also used an IG1T as an outfill and DVA KS10 subwoofers.
“We taped out the area the band had to fit into in our rehearsal space the night before so we could practice fitting our show into a tight space. The next day when we got to the venue, we were really happy with the way that the Ingenia fit into the architecture of the house. The profile was nice and slim so we didn’t have a monster PA taking up the unique backdrop.”
Andy Grammer will be performing parts of his new album, The Good Parts, at 6:00pm on Saturday, January 27th at the annual “Imagine Party” at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA and heads out this spring on a nationwide tour showcasing the new album along with his established hits.
