From June through August radio station 96.9 was host to the "Smooth Jazz Boston" Summer Concert Series. The free concert events, held every Thursday evening over the Summer, took place at Boston's Copley Square. Artists who participated in the '99 concert lineup included: Larry Carlton, Chuck Loeb, Ed Calle, Richard Elliot, Heads Up Super Band, Spyro Gyra and Patti Austin.

Providing the pro audio for the concert series, which attracted audiences from 3,000-5,000 individuals per night, was MJA Audio out of Massachusetts who supplied a system comprised of MSL-4s and 650-Ps.

"The self-powered Meyer system we used at at Copley Square was incredible," said Brian Winton, system engineer for MJA Audio. "With relatively few loudspeakers we were able to get amazing coverage and power."

Winton also commented that even at crowded events like the Spyro Gyra concert, held on August 19, the Meyer Sound system delivered even sound throughout the Square.

"What they say about Meyer Sound systems reproducing sound extremely well is true," he said. "The sound travels well, regardless if it's 50 feet or 150 feet from the self-powered systems."

He added that at "Smooth Jazz Boston" as well as other outdoor and indoor events, he has never heard an engineer not liking the Meyer Sound system. "The results I get with Meyer self-powered systems are amazing performance after performance. It's hard to beat that."

September, 1999
