Depending on client requirements, Camilo’s crew have occasionally split the system up into two or more smaller systems, where they are able to operate independently thanks to their Active power architecture and portable design. “It’s a very straightforward setup; we can have the guys assemble them as little PA’s, or run a primary system and then a smaller system in another room for example.”
Assembling the system at venues such as The Forum Melbourne, Melbourne Cricket Ground, Moonee Valley Racing Club, and Palladium at Crown, to name only a few, Upstage Sound is no stranger lugging and loading PA. This is where the HDL series really shines for Camillo too. “I love the power-to-weight ratio. There’s so much energy for such small units; especially in the subs- they are really something special for that size. The best part though, is that we recently changed from a 4-tonne truck to a 3-tonne truck, and I’m really pleased that it all still fits nicely along with the lighting, trussing and other gear we often need.”
From corporate gatherings like ‘ACER’s 70s Gala’ (pictured), to outdoor music festivals like ‘Super Garden Party’, Upstage Sound have an impressive history of events under their belt; where they have had the opportunity to work with a variety of well-known Australian talent, such as Brian Cadd, Russell Morris and Johnny Diesel.
