LORIE LINE “THE GLORY OF CHRISTMAS” TOURS WITH NEXO GEO S 12 SERIES AND YAMAHA CONSOLES

BUENA PARK, Calif.–Pianist Lorie Line is currently performing over 80 concerts on “The Glory of Christmas” tour and accompanied by The Pop Chamber Orchestra, this year‘s tour promises to be a spectacular night of music positioned around Line‘s concert ground piano and featuring many traditional Christmas songs and carols including music from The Messiah. Ten world-class musicians accompany Line as she and her grand piano take center stage. From breathtaking ballads to choreographed Motown moves, Line has redefined the image of a typical piano concert.

The beauty of offering complete audio systems solutions for touring has never been more visible than on “The Glory of Christmas” tour. The audio system, provided by REACH Communications, includes 14 NEXO GEO S1210 boxes for the main line array with two S1230s positioned 8 per side, along with 24 GEO S8s for the side hangs. NEXO Alpha S2s are used for subs, PS 8, 10, 15 Series for side fills and monitor wedges, PS 8s for front fills, two NX242, NXES4 and NX241 are provided for processing along with five PS-TDV2 controllers. A Yamaha M7CL-48 digital audio console is used for front of house mixing by Scottie Pakulski, accompanied by REACH systems tech Matt Dellwo, and a Yamaha DM1000 is used by monitor engineer Todd Behrens.Capitol Theater at Overture Hall with NEXO GEO S 12 SYSTEM

The tour production staff was looking to move to a line array with 75-80 degree horizontal coverage rather than point-source boxes,” states Dan Brown of REACH Communications. “I knew the NEXO cabinets fit their specs and that the new GEO S12 cabinets would compete very favorably with other speakers in the same category. In my opinion the GEO S12 is much smoother in the highs.”Todd Behrens, Scottie Pakulski, Matt Dellwo

“Our experience with the earlier GEO S8 product was highly favorable in many different venues,” adds Mark Brown. “For this reason we were looking at the GEO S12 as a step-up for larger venues but with the same NEXO GEO sound quality and design features including similar rigging versatility. A major decision-maker in timing our purchase was the introduction of the full line of NEXO GEO S12 cabinets, including the GEO S1230 cabinet (30 degree array module) which serves as the bottom cabinet in most of our array configurations for the S12 rig.”

After hearing the GEO S8 system on other REACH shows, Dan Brown explains that front of house engineer Scottie Pakulski was sold on the NEXO GEO S 12 system. “Being able to easily change the rigging is just another plus with the S12 cabinets,” notes Brown. “It lets you have a very versatile cabinet that can be used in many situations with minimal changes.”

“I love the clarity and intelligibility of the Yamaha console and NEXO system,” notes Scottie Pakulski, front of house engineer for the Lorrie Line tour.”
