Abe V. Systems of the Bronx, N.Y., recently purchased a full JBL VerTec VT4889 line array system after evaluating numerous options. Abe V. Systems has been using the new rig for concert events in the New York area with major international artists.
A leading sound reinforcement company since 1982, Abe V. Systems is the vision of president Abraham Viera, with helps from his sons and VPs Abraham Viera Jr. and Daniel Viera, and general manager Manny Martinez. Artists who have worked with Abe V. Systems include Dave Matthews, Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony, among others.
Abe V. Systems’ first event using the VerTec VT4889 system was El Spring Bling Blineo (pictured), sponsored by Univision Radio’s La Kalle 105.9 FM. Held April 21, 2006, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., the event featured Reggaeton stars including Daddy Yankee and Aventura.
On April 28, Abe V. Systems provided the new VT4889 system for La Mega 97.9 FM’s Mega Concierto. Held at Madison Square Garden, the concert was headlined by Latin artists Victor Manuel, Jerry Rivera and Gilberto Santa Rosa.
“Abe V. Systems is well-respected for live event production, especially among the Hispanic entertainment community, which trusts the company to accurately reproduce its music,” says David Scheirman, VP of tour sound at JBL Professional. “We appreciate Abe V.’s decision to invest in JBL VerTec.”
