Dynacord Cobra Delivers At Florida Fundraiser

United States
21 November 2007 — When it comes to a compact PA system that offers an unbeatable combination of plug and play power, performance, and portability, it’s hard to beat Drummer Boy Sound’s Dynacord Cobra line array system, complimented by EV microphones, monitors and amplifiers, Midas mixing consoles and Klark Teknik signal processing.

The Miami-based company deployed this winning combination as part of a full sound, lighting, and video production package for a fundraising dinner hosted by the Broward County Mayor’s Office and The Sickle Cell Foundation of Broward County, Florida, on October 21st. A 900-strong audience enjoyed live performances by The Wyle Fyah Band, who played two Caribbean style sets, and headliners The Perfect Image Band (Mobile, Alabama), who performed two Top 40 sets.

“Mayor Josephus Eggelletion put on a beautiful gala dinner, inviting dignitaries from around South Florida to raise money for The Sickle Cell Foundation,” says Harold Cummings of Drummer Boy Sound. “The event was held in the Grand Floridian Ballroom, a 30,000 sq. ft. convention center space. We needed wide and deep coverage for 900 guests: our Cobra system handled this easily, despite its relatively small size. I love to see the look on peoples’ faces when they compare the room size to the Cobra’s size; I fire the system up and their mouths fall to the ground, every time—it always makes my day! The Midas Verona 480 at FOH and Midas Siena 480 at monitors kept the sound quality high on the input end, and our EV Xw15 wedges delivered the stage mix wonderfully.

“Both band’s vocalists made positive comments during their sound checks, mentioning that the onstage mix sounded so good that nothing needed to change. We were scheduled for two hours of sound checks, but only needed 30 minutes total for both bands combined.

“With over $200,000 dollars raised for the Sickle Cell Foundation, the show was a great success,” Cummings adds. “The Mayor and his guests danced the night away to the pristine sound. Everyone involved, including Sabrina Russ of The Russ Agency, who hired the bands and DBS, was extremely happy with the whole production; the plan is to utilize this same equipment for future events and fundraisers.”
