Revolution Audio was delighted to work in partnership with The Bridge Youth Centre to bring up-and-coming rap group Writeway to the town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire.
The Bridge is a youth centre in Bridgnorth that aims to see young people become secure, successful, proactive and independent. As well as providing events for the youth of the town in its own venue, it is keen to host events for young people around the town with high-quality visiting bands and artists.
Writeway travelled from London and began the day in front of a packed crowd at Oldbury Wells School, where they performed a lunchtime promotional show, highlighting the main event later that evening. At Revolution Audio we highlighted our ability to deliver high quality audio solutions even in demanding environments; due to a very short setup period, and limited space, a position for the mixing desk within the audience area was impractical. Therefore, we configured a wireless network and remotely controlled our Soundcraft Si Compact digital mixer from within the crowd, using an iPad! This allowed for the mixing desk to stay clear of the hall area, while still allowing great sound.
For the main evening concert, our “A Rig” system of HK Projector amply filled the space, providing deep and punchy bass, clear mids and smooth high end. All the artists also commented on the excellent stage monitoring, provided by three DB Technologies M10-2s as wedges, with two QSC K10s as sidefills.
Manager of The Bridge, John Prockter, said: “The Gig was the single most significant event we’ve run for young people so far, and it was practically perfect! Events like this are a simple first step in a long road of work with specific young people but it’s significant because it shows what we’re about. Getting the best band, the best tech and venue all add to communicating that the young people are worth the effort.”
