Black Violin Celebrate “Juneteeth“ with EV

July 18, 2006

The group recently lent their talents to the annual “Juneteenth“ events held in Miami’s historic Overtown district at the Booker T. Washington High School Auditorium. Organized by Jubilate Arts, the Juneteenth program celebrates black art and culture, resonating with Overtown’s rich multicultural heritage. Black Violin’s “When Jesus Walks“ concert also saw the debut of the Overtown Urban Classic (Hip Hop) Orchestra and Chorus, featuring the Jubilate Jazz Ensemble. The orchestra is a performance outlet for participants in Jubilate’s classical musical instrument training workshops, so, as inner city artists who have made a name with their violins, Black Violin were perfect role models. Jubilate’s exclusive sound company, Drummer Boy Sound (DBS) of Miami, ensured superb sound for the show, using numerous EV wireless and wired mics, monitors and amps, a Dynacord Cobra rig, Midas console and Klark Teknik processing.

“And, as always, we were amazed ourselves at how quickly the Cobra sets up, dials in and tears down.”

“We are extremely happy to be associated with Jubilate and the Juneteeth events,“ reported Harold Cumming of DBS. “The Black Violin show with the Overtown Urban Orchestra was a highpoint, and our trusty EV, Dynacord, Midas and KT rig delivered professional quality sound that really moved the audience and the performers. And, as always, we were amazed ourselves at how quickly the Cobra sets up, dials in and tears down. The EV mics mixed on a Midas added up to great sound at every step of the signal path, and every nuance of the performances came through loud and clear. Black Violin are great to watch as well as hear, rapping verses, playing passages on violin, all accompanied by a DJ. It was great to hear our rig put through the paces with such an original outfit. Ira Everett and the Jubilate organization are doing great things for this community, and it was a great feeling to do justice to their hard work by bringing concert-quality audio to a high school auditorium.“ Equipment List: Multiple wired EV N/D767 and N/D967 mics; (4) EV RE-1 wireless w/ N/D967 capsules; Dynacord Cobra system w/ amp rack; (9) EV QRX112 stage monitors (bi-amped mixes); (2) EV QRX112 stage sidefills (bi-amped); Multiple EV CP3000s power amps for monitors and sidefills; Midas Legend 32 channel; Klark Teknik DN370.
