UK - Adlib supplied full audio production to the Glasgow and Manchester gigs on the recent UK leg of Snarky Puppy’s Immigrance world tour, plus a control package - comprising two Yamaha CL5 consoles for FOH and monitors, a line system and all the associated cable and distribution infrastructure for the other UK and European dates. These included one night at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Grammy award-winning, Brooklyn New York-based multi-genre ‘jam’ band Snarky Puppy embraces a lively mix of jazz, pop, rock and world music. The Immigrance album dropped in the Spring of 2019 and this was part of a seven-month world tour to support the work.
Adlib was asked onboard by the Band’s production manager Rosanna Freedman who has enjoyed a long, strong and very positive working relationship with the Liverpool-based company.
Rosanna first met Adlib in 2006, when she was managing popular Manchester live music venue, Band on The Wall. The production manager there at the time asked Adlib to design and install the new house PA system, for which they did “an amazing job,” she recalls.
Adlib’s Phil Kielty project managed from the office, working closely with Michael Harrison mixing FOH for this leg, and Matt Reccia on monitors.
The two full audio production shows supplied by Adlib were Manchester Apollo and Glasgow Barrowlands.
L-Acoustics K2 systems were deployed for both gigs, with 12 K2 a side plus eight ARCS front-fills, four X8 lip-fills and 12 KS28 subs in Manchester; and six K2 a side in Barrowlands together with eight ARCS front-fills, four X8 lipfills and 12 KS28 subs. In both cases 12 L-Acoustics X15 wedges made up the monitor system.
Adlib’s James Coghlan and Sam Pearson were the systems engineers. They rigged and fine-tuned the PA.
The two CL5s received a 64-channel Dante input from Adlib’s two Rio D3224 digital stage boxes driven by an analogue split and signal distribution, with multipin sub-snakes for quick set-up on stage.
