dLive S7000 makes Kenyan debut at Gospel Extravaganza
KENYA: Trueblaq Entertainment recently organised and staged the third annual Gospel Extravaganza in Kenya, partnering with Live Gigs Entertainment and Royal Media. The praise and worship concert featured an appearance by American Christian worship leader, singer and songwriter Dr Ron Kenoly, as well as a range of Kenyan artists including Esther Wahome, Size 8, Willy Paul, Solomon Mkubwa, Mercy Masika and Pitson. An estimated 2,000 worshippers attended the event.
Sound Creations was enlisted by Trueblaq to supply the audio solution for the event. The company delivered a system comprising six dBTechnologies T12 and four T8 loudspeakers. Shure microphones were employed to capture the sounds of the vocals and instruments. For monitoring, dBTechnologies FM12 cabinets were placed onstage and a Shure IEM solution was also employed.
And, reportedly deployed for the first time in Kenya, an Allen & Heath dLive S7000 Surface controlled the mix at FOH. The functionality of the console impressed the event’s lead sound engineer, Edwin Martin, who comments: ‘This is the best desk I have worked with.’
Gospel Extravaganza also featured Chauvet lighting fixtures implemented by Sound Creations, while DJ MO mixed from a Pioneer DJ controller.
