Technology is a wonderful thing when it comes to performing live on stage these days. So much has changed in the past few years which has enabled us to do so much more with less. The equipment has gotten smaller, lighter, and more powerful than ever before. We have tried to keep up with the changes along the way and are constantly testing and following the latest trends in the music world.
Automation is key for us as a duo and we are finding better ways to implement this into our show all the time. Gone are the days of needing a sound and lighting technician as the advances in this equipment has evolved to a point where we can achieve and control all this as we perform by ourselves.
Consequently, this new gear is seldom ready to use right out of the box. Many tedious hours, days, and weeks are sometimes required to integrate a promising new gizmo to work with all our other gizmos. The winter months are usually the best time for us to experiment with our setup as South Dakota weather keeps us close the warm fire.
Our main plan last fall was to revamp everything into a lighter and more compact setup which would allow us to accommodate areas of any size, large or small, indoors or outside, without sacrificing a quality performance. Reducing setup and tear down time was also a huge factor in our goals as we respect most events are on a stringent timeline, and understand everyone wants to get home at a decent hour.
We worked closely with manufactures and distributors to engineer our current setup to escalate us to a point where many of our fans have stated it’s the best we have ever looked and sounded!
This year we are excited about introducing many of our new features to our deserving audiences.
