VUE Mints Iconic Live Venue Installation in Los Angeles

When Todd Christiansen, owner of the legendary Los Angeles Mint Club, set out to retrofit the venue’s 20-year-old sound system, he had two main objectives. First, he wanted to enhance sightlines in the low-ceilinged 1937-era building, and second, he was looking for a state of the art system befitting of a club that’s hosted some of music’s greatest performers, including Stevie Wonder, Willie Dixon, Natalie Cole and Ray Charles; as well as more contemporary acts such as Ben Harper, Macy Gray, and The Wallflowers.

VUE Wraps the Italian Summer Festival Season at Indiegeno

According to Sinergie’s Livio Spallino, the festival was a great example of how VUE provides Sinergie with a competitive edge, and has helped make them the go-to sound company on the Italian music festival circuit. “The Indiegeno Festival was essentially 6 live venues packaged into one festival. With each new day we had to design a system with diffusion suitable for particular circumstances ranging from squares in ancient villages to nature reserves and beaches. Thanks to Sinergie’s Rosario “Saro” Tinè as the Festival’s resident FOH engineer, and the flexibility and sonic character of VUE’s Continuous Source Topology, we were able to configure systems that delivered each and every night. With VUE in our arsenal, we know we can take on these sorts of complex projects and exceed client, and audience, expectations every single time.”
