One Persons Music Is Another Persons Noise

Commentary -

Greene Street Nightclub is once again in the epicenter of a storm in downtown Greensboro. A few well healed residents of the recently completed downtown condominiums in the Center Pointe high rise objected to the late night roof top activities at the nightclub less than a block away to the south. This latest controversy takes the form noise complaints form the condo residents. In a rush to appease these affluent downtown residents City leaders are in the process of writing an new noise ordinance that if enacted would place onerous new restrictions on both the Greene Street Nightclub and everyone else engaged in activities in Greensboro's thriving downtown entertainment district. This discussion will no less than determine whether an active music and arts scene
will continue to drive business and residents to downtown Greensboro with the tapestry of sounds that accompanies it or if local residents will once again have to leave town to seek entertainment elsewhere and leave us with a downtown that is largely boarded up and derelict like it was a few scant years ago. The very thing that helps make Center Pointe a great modern urban residence, a vibrant and active center city, is in danger by regulation. Let's hope the citizens of Greensboro resolve this controversy amicably before downtown looses its character and a whole lot those working downtown loose their livelihood. Join the discussion.

The Big Move

It's hard to imagine how much hassle it has been to move just two units down to Suite G in the same building - that's less than 50 feet to the right but trust me, it was no picnic. A couple of days drug into well over two weeks and we are still a little disorganized and our store sign is still waiting to be moved, who knows when that will get done, and we still haven't got our phones straightened out yet. Of course this all had to happen during one of CareySounds busiest Februarys in our companies history.

We appreciate you patience with us during the move while we get all of the kinks worked out. The one thing that has not changed is this website and our email system so if you can't get us on the phone or find our new door (two doors down to the right on the end of the building) then please send
up a smoke signal us an email and we will call you right back - I promise!

The Sound Of Music - Center City Park Style

The hills park is alive with the sound of music. The sparkling fountains, beautiful sculptures and lush gardens of Center Park located in the heart of downtown Greensboro have been augmented with a major new feature. Those green cylinders that have been seen springing up amongst the foliage in the park are not some exotic new plant, but are instead 22 new carefully placed high fidelity loudspeakers that ring the perimeter of the park making it the largest surround sound system in Greensboro.

CareySound had presented the idea of a background music system some time ago. Last spring several spontaneous gatherings occurred in downtown Greensboro and park operations made the decision to dramatically increase the official event schedule in the park to creatively channel the energy of the increased activity in the downtown area and encourage more family participation in park activities. The idea of adding a distributed background music system in the park was revisited and CareySound was tasked with the job of design and Implementation.


John Carey puts some finishing touches to the installation of the new audio system last week that was began in mid January.
