Walk the Moon Dances with ShowMatch System

“Shut Up and Dance” popstars hit the road with FOH engineer James Wooten.

Framingham, MA (September 6, 2018)—Walk The Moon, known for its omnipresent hit “Shut Up and Dance,” has been making the rounds with its FOH engineer, James Wooten, playing theaters and more. In recent times, Wooten has mixed the band through Bose Pro ShowMatch DeltaQ line array systems at various venues, and shared his thoughts on the experience.

Hooray for Hollywood

Wooten’s background includes early days as a multi-instrumentalist (“mostly a drummer,” he notes) and a rigorous education in studio recording before transitioning to live work when certain opportunities arose. He has now been with Walk the Moon for five years, witnessing the act’s rise from his front-of-house position each night.

“Before the first night using the ShowMatch system, I knew Bose from its consumer products but had yet to experience a professional sound reinforcement system from the company,” he recalled not long after mixing through one at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR (which was outfitted with the system by integration company Tone Proper AV, located in nearby Gresham). “I had heard good things through testimonials, but I hadn’t experienced it myself. The system definitely exceeded my expectations.”

“The coverage and the tonal quality is nice and warm without being too in-your-face, and you can get good volume out of it without harmonic distortion. I enjoyed mixing the band on it a lot. We experienced no technical issues whatsoever, and the band and crowd had a great show. Everybody was happy.
