Baltimore SoundStage, a new performance space, will open at 124 Market Place in Baltimore’s inner harbor on Labor Day weekend. The new venue is as collaboration between New York City’s HighLine Ballroom and the management team responsible for opening Baltimore’s Bourbon Street live music venue. The room will have a scalable capacity of 500 or 1,000 for standing room shows and 500 for seated shows.
Front-of-house engineer Paul Dorin was key in selecting the top-of-the-line audio gear, which includes an Avid VENUE SC48 board at FOH, a Yamaha 48-channel M7CL at monitors and a JBL main array (eight VRX 932LA, six SRX 728 subs). Four Electro-Voice Delta Max on four bi-amped Crown XTI 4000s handle outfill/delays, while a JBL VRX 932LA is for front-fill. Monitoring is via Crown and JBL.
