Gand Completes Record Breaking May

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Gand Concert Sound (GCS) of Glenview, Illinois aka “The NEXO Guys” recently completed a record-breaking month supplying 251 NEXO cabinets to an impressive list of clients.

“Our extensive inventory of NEXO products includes world-class cardioid GEO T and CD18 subs, our latest acquisition mid-sized GEO S12, compact PS8, PS15, PS10, PS8 wedges and Alpha conventional cabinets all powered by NEXO 4×4 NXAmps,” states Gary Gand, President of Gand Concert Sound. GCS was the first company in the Midwest to adopt NEXO’s Tangent Array system when it was introduced in 2003.

Gand clients during May included Li’L Ed & the Imperials, Bobby Vinton, Leahy, Crystal Bowersox, Carol Burnett, Stryper, Andrew Bird, Freddie Jones Band, Ludicris, Switchfoot, Oak Ridge Boys, Frankie Valli, Enrique Iglesias, Gym Class Heroes, The Wanted, B.o.B, Cobra Starship, Havana Brown, DEV, Neon Hitch, Carly Rae Jepsen, Karmin, Adam Lambert, The Doobie Brothers, and Dave Mason, to name just a few.

The month finished off with a return to the Allstate Arena in Roselle, Illinois for Fantabuloso 3. An impressive 24-per side NEXO GEO T line array supported by 18 GEO S1210s, 24 CD18 cardioid subs, 10 4×4 NXAmps, and Yamaha PM5D-RH and LS9-16 digital consoles for monitors, played an integral role in the radio- promoted festival that featured 12 performances including bands and the country’s top DJs.

“The NEXO system performed very well at Fantabuloso 3,” stated Gand. “The GEO T is small, but mighty, and produces SPLs comparable to the bigger boxes. Coupled with their cardioid design and cardioid CD18 subs, we feel they are the best in their class. All the band engineers were happy.”

GCS also supplied NEXO PS15 R2s for monitor speakers, Alpha Series for flown side fills and S2 subs, Sennheiser G2 and G3 in ear monitors and Shure UHF-R wireless handhelds with KSM9, B58A, SM58, and B87C capsules at Fantabuloso 3 and made use of quick-change snake boxes from Link.

FOH engineer Adam Rosenthal said, “Fantabuloso 3 was quite the undertaking. Our crew worked tirelessly throughout the show, with only a few seconds of down time.”
