Allen & Heath and BASSBOSS to Power ocV!BE Guitar Festival

The inaugural ocV!BE Guitar Fest, powered by Allen & Heath and BASSBOSS, will take place at Honda Center in Anaheim, CA, on Saturday, July 29. Honda Center is home to the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks, and will serve as the anchor for ocV!BE, a $4 billion, sustainable, mixed-use, live entertainment district scheduled to break ground later this year.

This large-scale guitar event will feature major North American music merchants, retail stores, vintage dealers, boutique guitar, amp, and pedal builders, private collectors, and accessory makers – with unique opportunities to buy, sell, and trade gear.

The festival will also feature a live performance stage with well-known guitar icons rocking out, including Dave Amato (REO Speedwagon), Bruce Kulick (KISS, Grand Funk Railroad), Greg Bissonette (Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band), Matt Bissonette (Elton John) and Griff Hamlin (Single Barrel Blues Band).

The stage will be powered by a 96kHz Allen & Heath Avantis mixing console, along with a GX4816 48-input stagebox and a 16-input DX168 expander. Avantis is well suited for mixing arena venues, with 64 channels of robust input processing, as well as 42 fully configurable busses.

The PA system will be provided by renowned speaker manufacturer BASSBOSS – featuring dual AT212 powered 2-way loudspeakers, and multiple SSP215 subwoofers.

Both models provide clear and powerful output in a compact and lightweight form factor that is easy to transport and set up.

“The fact that Allen & Heath’s digital consoles are dominating the marketplace is evident and well-deserved,” noted Bruce Adolph, co-promoter of the festival. “I personally heard a demo of the BASSBOSS speakers and I was so impressed with their clarity and richness – the full sound spectrum. I couldn’t ask for more to have this combination sponsor our MainStage at the inaugural ocV!BE Guitar Festival. Our guest guitar, drum and bass artists are going to sound great!”

“We’re honored to have been selected to provide audio equipment for this event,” said Rob Impala, VP of Pro Audio for American Music and Sound. “With the impressive lineup of performances, the audience deserves to get the best possible sound. Allen & Heath and BASSBOSS make for a perfect combination.”
