Lucy Spraggan on tour
UK - As part of the recently returned UK and Ireland tour with X-Factor singer/songwriter Lucy Spraggan, Event Production Services provided a Yamaha LS9-32 and Senheiser EW300 In-Ear Monitor system to Element Audio, who also supplied their own Midas Pro2c to the tour party.

James Apperley of Element Audio said of EPS: "The kit was great, reliable and performed well. It was great working closely with Rob again and we've got a good working relationship. I hope that this continues in the coming years."

Event Production Services Robert Nisbet was mixing monitors for the duration of the tour, which took in venues of around 1500 capacity, though Rob's own highlight of the tour was the intimate venue in Galway. "The staff and punters at the Roisin Dubh were friendly, fun and really into it. The atmosphere was great and we were made very welcome. We had a lot of fun at that venue and had really bonded as a team as this was close to the end of the tour, I'd happily go out with this tour party again and hope to continue to work with them."

James' Element Audio also provided a full mics package for the tour, including a Neumann KMS 105 for Lucy's vocal. "Numerous microphones were A-B'd during production rehearsals, but it was the Neumann that gave the most detail and accuracy with Lucy's voice. Having the whole band on in-ears allowed both James and I to really gain-up the microphone with no danger of feedback."
