Rochester, NY (August 28, 2018) — This year’s Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival celebrated its seventeenth anniversary with a record attendance of over 208,000 people, who flocked to the downtown area for nine days of performances on multiple stages by the likes of Seal, Boz Scaggs, Alison Krauss, Brian Setzer and Tower of Power. The festival, which ran from June 22 through June 30, included the Avangrid Foundation/RG&E Barclay Damon Fusion Stage, hosting shows by regional artists and powered by QSC, including K.2 and KW Series powered loudspeakers, KW181 active subwoofers and a TouchMix-30 Pro Compact Digital Mixer.

QSC KW181 subs and KW153 full range cabinets took care of the house while K12.2s handled monitors, with a KS212C and a K10.2 for drum fill. K8.2 Monitors were used for front fill. A TouchMix-30 Pro digital console completed the system. Audio Images Sound & Lighting Inc. of Batavia, New York, provided production for many of the festival stages.

According to Sebastian Marino, Audio Images owner and President/CEO, "The QSC system did an amazing job in the tent. It was very musical and had great coverage."

Front-of-house engineer Joe Barnes commented, "I've had various systems in this tent over the years and this was the best it has sounded. The bass was tight, the vocals were very natural, and the top end was extremely well defined. This tent is not the easiest environment for audio but the K.2 and KWs, combined with the features of the TouchMix-30 Pro, made getting a great sounding mix quick and easy."
