SD7 on tour with Blue Man Group

Published: MEA

SOUTH AFRICA: Blue Man Group recently toured in South Africa for the first time, stopping in Cape Town and performing the 200th show of their world tour at The Teatro at Montecasino in Johannesburg. The shows were a homecoming for South African sound engineer Christo Davis, who has been working with Blue Man Group as head of audio for more than a year, mixing each performance using a DiGiCo SD7. He is joined by deputy sound engineer Isobel Rush.

‘I did a show with them in Australia about four years ago and I just hit it off with the sound designer,’ recalled Mr Davis. ‘We have similar philosophies and approaches on how we like to do things and he’d been trying to get me back on the road ever since. Last year it all lined up and here I am.’

Dutch rental company Ampco Flashlight Group supplied the SD7 that travels to each venue with Mr Davis and Blue Man Group. ‘I’ve been using the SD7 for the past three years and I love it,’ Mr Davis said. ‘It’s very intuitive and even if you are new to the console, it doesn’t take long to find your way around it. Back in the day, we used to tour with racks and racks of outboard gear. Now you show up with your console and that’s pretty much all you need – and it sounds good too.’
