Simply Red Tour Germany with EV X-Line

November 9th, 2006

One of the largest companies in Germany providing technical services in the event business, Satis & Fy recently took delivery of an X-Line and Tour Grade amplifiers from Electro-Voice. They were so convinced by the performance the new combo delivered at the Red Bull Air Race, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park events that, after receiving the commission to handle Simply Red’s 2006 tour of Germany, they had little hesitation in taking them along.

Obviously Simply Red FOH Engineer Gary Bradshaw has worked with Britannia Row’s X-Line on many occasions in the past; for this outing, the task of satisfying-or, rather, exceeding-his expectations fell to system technicians Alexander Lewin, Stefan Harazd and Paul Wunderlich.

It would appear they succeeded. Certainly the critics were impressed, with Christoph Klemp euphorically declaring: “The sound system was controlled perfectly: every nuance of Chris de Margery’s flute and Ian Kirkham’s saxophone solos came out crystal-clear above the powerful bass and drums… It was a delight to listen to - from the first row to the last.“
