2017 is here!

Hello fellow music lovers! From everyone here at 608 Sound & Light, we hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that the new year is off to a good start!

We certainly have been busy over here! Between shows, maintenance, and the events of daily life, it feels like we haven’t had a moment to breathe, let alone rest. But, you all know how that goes, I’m sure!

What have we been up to? Well, real quickly…

We are booking shows well into 2017. If you are planning an event, a festival, a bar gig, a party, or anything that will require live sound production here in Wisconsin, contact us SOON. We aren’t kidding when we say that we are already booking shows into September of 2017, and are negotiating on several events that haven’t been posted to our calendar yet!!!

TONS of new gear, literally. We have been busy upgrading some of our core gear, and we are *excited* with all of this excellent new live sound production equipment!

We said good-bye to our faithful and beloved Behringer XR18 Air rack mixer and upgraded to the Behringer X32 Rack. The XR18 served us very well, but it’s in a great new home with a local band, and they are loving it. And we’re loving the X32 Rack! We have it paired with a Behringer S16 stage box to deliver 32 balanced (XLR) inputs at your next important event.

We also purchased new JTR subwoofers, and couldn’t be more excited, because they are absolute *beasts* that will really punch-up the low end of your next show. Each of these new subwoofers requires 4000-watts of power… good thing our QSC PL380 amplifiers are up to the task. Why not visit us at an upcoming show to check them out, or better yet, feel them for yourself when we provide sound production for your next event!

And finally, we purchased a pair of Yamaha’s amazing DSR115 active speakers. The DSR115 are a 2-way, powered speaker with a 15″ woofer and a 2″ titanium compression driver, and are capable of delivering 136dB of clear, powerful sound. We use them as drum monitors, side fills, and FOH speakers (for small venues). The DSR115 are unlike any other powered speaker we’ve ever used, which is why we made the investment in them.

Alrighty… I suppose that’s enough shop talk for today. It’s time to get busy in the shop – January is more-or-less fully booked! Thanks for checking in with us, and we hope to see you at a show sometime soon. Until then, stay healthy, take care, and rock on!!
