The 15th Annual FIESTA Street Festival brought us back to familiar territory this last weekend. CareySound, in partnership with Sterling Audio Visual, provided a Dynacord Cobra system for the main stage on 4th Street.
Not content with just being another pretty face, Sterling AV co-owner, Robert Smith shows us his MIDAS mixing chops.
Even though we couldn't pronounce the names of all these acoustic instruments, if it made a sound we put a mic on it and made it beautifully louder.
Brandon Potter, head audio production guru of First Assembly in Winston, smiles when he discovers how versital, sonically superior and affordable the XL8 system is.

I had hired Jim to set up one of his stages for an event tonight in Winston-Salem. As we were finishing the set-up Jim suffered an aparent heart attack. He was taken to Baptist Hospital. The last report I received around midnight from his daughter was that he was stable and that they are expecting him to fully recover. Please pray for his quick and complete recovery.
For those of you who don't know Jim, he is good friend and colleague of mine that founded Audio & Light Rental here in Greensboro and currently owns and operates Jo Mama's Mobile Staging.
Tomorrow night in Winston-Salem is the place to be and Dynacord will be the order of the day. It's the annual Rock the Block festival and CareySound in conjunction with our partner Sterling A/V are providing the production for the four main stages once again this year.

A full month ahead of schedule, BOSCH received regulatory approval and is wasting no time in taking over the reigns of TELEX as evidenced by the departure of Raymond V. Malpocher last week, Maybe now we will start getting product flowing again. I've had this feeling that the old owners were bleeding last minute money from the company by cutting production and not replacing inventory. Goodbye venture capitalists. Hopefully now that Ray is gone we will see the end to "built to order" and start to see lead times shorten and shipping from inventory rise once again. It's been hard to explain to our customers why it was taking so long to receive their orders.
It's somehow fitting that the first one to be delivered is to God.
Delivered Friday and waiting in the depths of Westover Church of Greensboro, seen here being put through a last minute shakedown before it is deployed next week, is the elusive MIDAS XL8 digital system. Just look at all of those boxes waiting patently to be opened. We will have more news soon so stay tuned.
