Ozark Henry Tours With Two HARMAN Soundcraft Vi Consoles in Bespoke Design

Two experienced and respected Belgian sound engineers are currently taking their first ride on Soundcraft’s Vi platform and loving every minute of it.

Which is just as well, since the band Ozark Henry (which is also the stage name of founder Piet Goddaer) will be touring arenas up to 6,000 capacity in Germany and Benelux through the spring and early summer before playing a major part in Europe’s burgeoning festival scene — and finally continuing through 30-40 Benelux theatre dates in the Autumn.

Handling the FOH mix is Tom Janssen, who also happens to be the in-house head technician at Brussels’ popular circuit venue, Ancienne Belgique, while monitor man Marcel Cortleven has worked for many of the country’s leading bands.
