Saturday's fantastic gig. Behind the falling poppies are Mike Peters, current members of The Alarm, John Quirke MD, Welsh Pops Orchestra and the Acquire choir. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen - 94 mics/DIs and two Midas consoles at FOH . One of the best shows I've ever been involved in. Some of the songs are over 30 years old and are still good songs, but with the orchestration sounded sensational. ABacoustics provided loudspeaker system (EAW KF730), monitor system, consoles (Midas PRO1 and PRO2), microphone package and engineers.
