Meyer Sound bags Montr?al Jazz Festival gig

Meyer Sound has been named the Official Sound Reinforcement Sponsor of the Montréal International Jazz Festival this year, in cooperation with Solotech.

Solotech will provide festival-wide audio support using a variety of Meyer systems, including a LEO linear large-scale sound reinforcement system for the festival’s largest stage, Scène TD.

Considered to be the world’s largest jazz festival, the Montréal International Jazz Festival will go on for ten days starting Friday June 28th, and feature 3,000 artists performing over 1,000 concerts, including 300 free shows.

“Our main goal is to maximise the quality of the experience for every festival goer,” said André Ménard, artistic director for the festival. “Working with Solotech and Meyer Sound gives us a peace of mind in that respect. The combined expertise of their great teams never fails to make every stage of the festival sound great.”

A Meyer Sound partner since 1992, Solotech has supplied the company’s loudspeaker systems for a number of huge artists, including Céline Dion, Michael Bublé and Leonard Cohen. Solotech was the first company to invest in a LEO system, and currently holds over 2,000 Meyer Sound loudspeakers in its inventory.

This year, the 34th edition of the Montréal International Jazz Festival offers a strong line-up of musicians, including Wynton Marsalis, Wayne Shorter, Dr. John, Bill Frisell, Boz Scaggs, Buddy Guy, John Scofield, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Zakir Hussain, Lyle Lovett, Leon Russell, Joshua Redman, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Esperanza Spalding, John Abercrombie, Charles Lloyd, Ravi Coltrane and Rufus Wainwright.
