As part of their packed out 4 day stint at the legendary Manchester O2 Apollo, Elbow are their crew were kind enough to let us bring two groups of SSR Live Sound students on a field trip to watch their sound check and explore the stage set-up. Students were able to chat to front of house and monitor engineers and have their questions answered.
Head of Live Sound, Jay Beard, worked as Monitor Engineer for Elbow on numerous tours, and occasionally still works with the band for one off shows. Because of his long standing connection with the band, he was able to organise this incredible experience for our students!
Thank you to Jay, Elbow, and all their crew for making this happen.
