ADLIB Helps Up The Technical Ante at Liverpool Music Week
ADLIB Audio came onboard as sponsors of Liverpool Music Week for the first time this year, to help raise the event’s production values and to invest in some excellent emerging musical talent.
The UK's largest indoor winter festival event was founded by local promoter Mike Deane in 2003, and is now regarded as a national showcase for some of the hottest new live music. Deane and his team recently formed a joint venture company with one of the UK's best-known music industry gurus - James Barton - founder of legendary superclub, Cream.
Liverpool Music Week 2007 featured 10 action packed days of live performances featuring over 200 bands across 15 venues around the city, attracting some of the UK's best known artists appearing alongside plenty of fresh new faces and line-ups.
ADLIB supplied sound systems to the City’s three main venues - at Alma De Cuba in Seel Street and at the Front and Back Rooms of the Bumper Bar in Hardman Street. They also supplied production sound for the Kaiser Chief's gig at Aintree Racecourse – consisting of a large JBL VerTec rig as per the Kaisers' UK arena tour which has just finished and was also supplied by ADLIB. Alma de Cuba featured a Nexo Alpha system which was overseen by Ben Booker.
The Bumper Bar rooms both featured ADLIB's grass roots FD PA systems specifically designed for small theatres, club/pub and other similar environments. These systems were looked after by Kenny Perrin, Michael Flaherty and James Coates.
Mike Dean, who was also production manager, says: "We were delighted to have ADLIB onboard. Apart from significantly upping the production values, it’s great to have local companies endorsing the event and working with a dynamic mix of new and young bands."
The bands included Friendly Fires, Candy Payne, Whisky Cats, John Smith and many others. The event was extremely well attended and enjoyed by many people from the City and further afield.
"It's been great to support and encourage something that's so worthwhile and accessible for all. I am sure Liverpool Music Week has a significant future ahead and we look forward to being part of that future," says ADLIB director Mark Roberts who project managed and co-ordinated all their work on the event.
