CLEVELAND, Ohioâ”€ Hughieâ€™s Audio Visual Services, Inc. (Cleveland, Oh.) recently purchased a NEXO GEO T line array, Yamaha PM5D-RH digital console and 16 Yamaha T5n amplifiers to service their corporate and concert production clients. â€œThe new NEXO GEO T system enhances our companyâ€™s full production services. It compliments our Total Structures 105â€™ x 45â€™ rated roof system and our complete line of intelligent and static lights,â€? states Dave Taybi, Director of Sound Services. â€œThe GEO T also compliments the 6 other roof sizes we own for any size event.â€? The company, which employs around 50 full time staff, is spearheaded by President, Dave Wheeler. With two additional locations in Columbus, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pa., the Hughieâ€™s team handles production and rentals of audio, video, lighting and staging, and full decorative equipment for all types of events.
The new NEXO GEO T system includes 24 boxes, 12 CD18s and four NX242 processors. Four EtherSound cards have been added to support the companyâ€™s GEO S system. â€œSince we already own a GEO S system, the GEO T was a natural fit for us,â€? says Taybi. â€œThe T sounds great, is easy to use and widely accepted, and since we were already familiar with NEXO products and the reliable support behind it, the implementation was very easy.â€? Taybi says the purchase of the Yamaha PM5D-RH console was a natural fit with the GEO T system. â€œThe Tn amps are lightweight and powerful.â€?
The company recently provided the NEXO GEO T rig, Yamaha PM5D and T5n amps in support of â€œThe Fest 2008â€?, Northeast Ohio’s largest free Christian festival, which ushered in 27,000+ people to Wickliffe, Ohio. Performers included Willy Cleary, North Davenport, Brooke Barrettsmith, Nevertheless, Stellar Kart, Matt Maher, Lee Roessler Band and Jeremy Camp.
Hughieâ€™s has also provided production support for events at Carnegie Hall (REO SpeedWagon), Columbus Ohioâ€™s Crew Stadium (Hawk Nelson), Ohio State Universityâ€™s Welcome Week (The Roots & Billy Currington), and the University of Pittsburghâ€™s Fall Fest (Motion City Soundtrack & Saves the Day), plus the Barack Obama Presidential Campaign (various locations).
