2016: A Little "Look Back"

It seems that everyone is in agreement that 2016 was a rather crazy year. Many significant events took place and historic milestones were reached throughout the year. At EE we followed suit by meeting some important milestones and participating in some unique events ourselves . For us, it was a year of growth - growing our staff, expanding our facilities with some major construction, adding inventory - including reaching the milestone of 100 Nexo speaker cabinets in our inventory - and once again getting the opportunity to work with some very talented performers. In looking back, we tallied up a small sampling of the star-studded line-up we got to work with this past year:
Here's to looking forward to what 2017 has in store for us.

MusicNow 2017 - Already In The Books 

We are always thrilled to be the "go to" production resource for MusicNow, which began in 2006 with a clear vision by Bryce Dressner of The National. Each year, the festival brings in an outstanding line-up to create and showcase risk-taking performers and performances. This year included the likes of Bob Weir, founding member of the Grateful Dead,  LNZNDRF, and multiple collaborations once again with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. 

Our own line-up for the week included setting up and providing a rehearsal space for Bob Weir and The Campfire Band at our warehouse and running full production for their performance on Thursday, January 12th at the Aronoff's P&G Theater in front of a sold-out crowd. Additionally, we provided backline for LNZNDRF's free, post concert performance at Taft Theater's Ballroom.

The Final Touches

It's good to be home and now home for us has a few more creature comforts. Our new offices, meeting rooms, and shop space are already being put to good use. A coffee bar (built from an old bowling alley) keeps us running all day (and sometimes night) long. Additionally, the new layout offers up a production office and rehearsal space for guest artists, a structural beam to hang PA off of and for all you tech nerds out there, true three phase 208v/120v power that is common amongst performance venues for properly powering professional grade equipment. 

Our very own meeting and training room, ready for action.
