ACIR Professional Supplies Yamaha CL5 for Jersey’s Own Southside Johnny on New Year’s Eve

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes first achieved prominence in the mid-1970s as the second act to emerge from the Jersey Shore music scene and considered part of the original Jersey Shore sound following Bruce Springsteen. Another of Jersey’s own, Jon Bon Jovi, recently said that growing up he wanted to be a Juke. Southside’s first three albums, I Don’t Want To Go Home (1976), This Time It’s for Real (1977), and Hearts of Stone (1978), were arranged and produced by one of the original co-founders of the band and Springsteen confederate, Steven Van Zandt, and largely featured songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen.

Ever evolving and still touring nationally, South Side Johnny recently performed a New Years Eve show at The Count Basie Theatre, in Red Bank NJ, with ACIR Professional (Egg Harbor Township) supplying audio production and backline for the gig. The audio included a new Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console used as the monitor console with ACIR co-owner, Ed DiBona, mixing using two Yamaha Rio-3224s. “The console sounds great, and I really like the color coded channel strips,” states DiBona. “It gives you instant recognition of key inputs and helps with locating individual channels when you are paging through multiple layers. The custom fader bank was invaluable; I was able to create a bank for the opening act and seamlessly transition to South Side.”

Joe Prinzo mixed front of house using a Yamaha PM5D. ACIR co-owner, John Grasso, mixed a live feed for a Sirius Radio broadcast on a Mackie 1602. Monitors were powered with Yamaha Tn4 amps (18) mixes. ACIR used Whirlwind cabling, Shure, Sennheiser, Audio Technica mics; and Radial and Countryman Dis. The main PA consisted of 22 d&b Audiotechnik Q1 boxes with six B2 subs.
