Texas-based Randy Rogers Band recently headlined the Big City Bash at the Gexa
Pavilion reinforced by Gemini LSV’s new Adaptive System from Eastern Acoustic
Works (EAW). Country stars Jason Isbell, Whiskey Myers and Sunny Sweeney also
performed at the event.
The Gexa Pavilion serves the greater Dallas area providing 7,500 covered seats and
10,000 lawn seats for music fans. The Gemini team provided 24 Anya modules,
hung in left-right array columns made up of 12 modules each, and 24 Otto
subwoofers, stacked 3 x 4 under each column on the stage. Outfill was handled by
two arrays made up of eight KF740 line array enclosures. Three KF730s were used
for front fill.
“I was incredibly impressed with both the sound quality and the consistent
coverage,’ says Tim Cain, owner of Gemini LSV. “There was no notable difference
in the SPL from the lip of the stage all the way out to the fence behind the lawn
Cain also noted that “the transition from Anya to the KF740s was seamless — the
new voicings that EAW rolled out for the KF Series sound terrific.’
Marty Weir, FOH engineer for Randy Rogers, adds, “I had gone to the Tom Petty
sound check events last fall and had the opportunity to try it out, but this was my
first time at a show. I don’t think I even scratched the surface of what it can do.
I’ve done at least six or seven shows at Gexa with three or four different PAs and
the coverage alone was amazing.’
Cain adds that the FOH engineers for each band were excited to use the new system
and have the opportunity to put it to use. “Everyone went out of their way to tell me
how much they liked the PA,’ he concludes.
