Miami‘s Drummer Boy Sound, 99 JAMZ WEDR, Powerade, and the City of Miami Gardens recently teamed up to sponsor and host the national touring HOOP IT UP 3 on 3 basketball challenge at Calder Race track in Miami Gardens, Florida. DBS deployed their portable powerhouse Dynacord Cobra line array system for the event, with additional top notch equipment from Electro-Voice, Midas, and Klark Teknik.
The event included a host of local and national R&B and Hip Hop artists, including Ray Lavender (Interscope Records), ACE with DJ Khaled, and Urban Mystic (Sobe Entertainment), to name a few. The event was hosted by radio personality Mike B (99 Jamz WEDR) and DBS‘ very own VP of Marketing and Development, Tangela Cummings, AKA “Lady DBS”. The banging bass and sounds were spun by Miami‘s hottest DJ‘s, DJ ICE and DJ GREO from WEDR 99 Jamz.
“It‘s a good thing when the only complaint you get for a two day event is that your system is too loud!”, says Harold Cummings, CEO of DBS. “But it‘s easy to turn down; what‘s important aside from the tons of headroom we‘re packing is that the system gives incredible presence, intelligibility, and punch at all SPLs. Whatever the client needs, we can deliver with finesse and complete control.”
WEDR radio station manager Linsey Powell (AKA “Maestro”) heard the Dynacord system at a concert for the City of Miami Gardens in January. Once he got a taste of what DBS, Dynacord, EV, Midas and KT can do, he was hooked. “He loved the fact that we were able to cover large areas with a compact system that sounded amazing,” adds Cummings. “That experience forged a relationship between DBS and the#1 rated radio station in South Florida, WEDR 99.1, 99JAMZ (owned by Cox Radio). HOOP IT UP brought out thousands of local and national spectators and players. The Cobra system made sure the event sound was a SLAM DUNK!”
