StagePro Deploys JBL VerTecâ Line Arrays For Colorado’s Country Jam and Rock Jam Festivals

Responsible for the production of two highly anticipated concerts in one of the country’s most difficult audio environments, festival production specialist StagePro successfully conquered high elevation, harsh winds and zero humidity with a complete JBL VerTecâ line array solution for this year’s Rock Jam and Country Jam festivals, staged in Grand Junction, Colorado. With artists ranging from Alice Cooper and Cinderella to Keith Urban and Sawyer Brown, the events presented many of the nation’s top current touring acts.

Utilizing 48 JBL VT4889 fullsize line array elements and 32 VT4880A fullsize arrayable subwoofers, Ottawa, Kansas-based StagePro president Jay Waller and system tech Nick Mourn overcame the environmental obstacles plaguing the country and rock festivals for nearly 20 years.

“We originally purchased the JBL VerTec rig to help solve the sound issues related to the stage’s environmental surroundings and to provide a system that could withstand the harsh weather conditions in Grand Junction,? stated Waller. “There is so much inconsistency with the atmosphere, hour to hour, that our sound check in the morning would not provide us with the levels we required for afternoon or night performances. Before we had the VerTec line arrays, the mix engineers weren’t able to get the sound to travel as well through the thin, high-altitude air, which didn’t please the artists, fans or organizers.?

The VerTec rig now used by StagePro is well known by the engineers and artists who grace the stages of Country and Rock Jam, in their 18th and seventh years, respectively. Waller confirms that his company’s VerTec rig is consistent with the rider demands of many top-tier touring groups, so there is no need to re-adjust the system for each artist. “They use the same rigs in stadiums and arenas that we use for our festival stages, so bands can just leave their touring sound equipment in the truck, making everyone’s hectic schedules a little less complicated,? Waller said.

“The VerTec VT4880A subs are unbelievable,? continued Waller. “Every time we set up a rig for these events, the engineers always walk in thinking we need more subs, but the 4880A truly offers more punch per pound, taking up less room and cutting costs. After listening, they all agree that it is an incredible loudspeaker.?
