Recently we had the pleasure of connecting with Jon Lemon, a noted, seasoned mix engineer who has handled front-of-house mix duties for numerous top artists, among them Beck, Janet Jackson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, as well as his current client, American singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne and the Supernova tour.
Lemon’s working with system tech Kyle Walsh and monitor engineer Ed Ehrbar supplied by Eighth Day Sound (Cleveland and the UK) to reinforce the live performances on the current shed tour by the Grammy-winning LaMontagne and his talented band.
Recently we had the pleasure of connecting with Scott Eisenberg, FOH Engineer for the Grammy Award winning Imagine Dragons. He has been with the band through their recent rise to fame and just completed his second run with an Adamson Energia system provided by Sound Image.
Scott has found comfort in using a rig that he knows will deliver and meet the scalable needs for a band that has gone from theaters to stadiums in the blink of an eye.
Recently we had the pleasure of attending the Rock Werchter festival in Belgium. We sat down with the festival's production manager, Walter D'Haese and senior sound engineer, Patrick Demoustier, to discuss the first deployment of PRG's new E15 rig.

"I put it number one... because once again it's what I always wanted to tour with. When I was given the choice I couldn't let it go by." - Kyle Hamilton from the Pharrell Williams "Dear G I R L Tour" at the O2 arena.
"There's maybe five that are really good of the modern popular brand PA's, and this is in the top two... Everything about it is easy logistics wise and the sound is wonderful. I don't know how you can go wrong with that." - Bruce Reiter
