Best Sound Team Minneapolis 2014 - First Avenue
In 2012, First Avenue made a tremendous improvement to its decade-old sound system. Burnsville's Electro-Voice installed a state-of-the-art XLC line-array system that provides the club with more powerful, wider-ranging sound coverage and is substantially more efficient. This is good news to everyone who frequents the downtown club on a regular basis, as well as to the club's longtime sound engineers, Ron Anderson and Randy Hawkins. That veteran sound team — with over 50 years of professional experience between the two of them — is typically responsible for dialing in the best sound for the biggest bands who play in Minneapolis, and the legendary club has indeed never sounded better.
