I would agree there were some sound issues early on but by the second set, esp closer to the end it was dialed in nicely. Sat a few rows behind the soundboard center orch row N

I was at MGM Foxwoods and thought the sound was ok, but I didn't like the mix, bass and b3 too low.

However, a friend who has been in the music biz since the '70s said the sound in Albany was atrocious.

It also seems the some issues are resolved mid show.... That's BS if true cause they aren't refunding half the ticket and there's no excuse to not have it right from the start.

The sound under the overhang (back of the floor) at the Orpheum can be really terrible. It was a bit scetchy in the balcony but it evened out.

When the Brothers did back-to-back shows at Oak Mtn. and Von Braun in Huntsville a few years back (2007?) the sound at Oak Mtn. was bad. Derek was barely audible, even when soloing. I yelled at the sound people, they indicated the problem was onstage.
The next night in Huntsville, Jack replaced Derek while he was at a wedding, and the sound was perfect. Same thing at the show there earlier this year.

Personally, I suspect that some crews are unfamiliar with how a band like this is supposed to sound, while others have more experience. And some may just be there to get paid and go home.

First I've heard of this, but completely agree, a band of this magnitude, with this many members, this much talent and this much historical power....there is absolutely no excuse for their sound being anything less than spectacular. That is something management should be addressing ASAP.

At times I find Derek & Warren too bright in the mix.

I said this from 2007... at Beacon... it is all about the music, we hear with ears.. it is a concert.. these are famous musicians... how in the world can the sound be so god awful, terrible.. it was a real let down for me then.. The sound was low, low, low..

It's like a fine restaurant... if the chef is not top notch .. the meal will not be great.. invest in the right tools for sound production... jeezzzzz

on the other side of it.. is Betts he likes it extremely loud... I need a middle ground.. I will take *loud* over straining to hear what they are playing...

Happy for those who had a great time...

My brother would probably love to work with the Brothers!!! He was the sound engineer for the Machine when they were on the road. He prefers to work gigs closer to home now that he's married. I'm sure he'd love to work the NYC gig coming up.


Miami Sound Machine?

It's the same crew for each show. he local will add labor to assist the touring crew.
Remember, it's referred to as GIGO. There is only so much an engineer can do if that is the case.
Here's a tip from the old jazz world. TURN DOWN TO SOUND BETTER.
Think of a venue as a container and audio as liquid.
The container will only hold so much, after that, you're drowning the victims.
If you can't hear on stage, it's probably you, so turn it down.
It's called audio re-enforcement, not audio reconstruction.
