The William Street Bird Bar opened its doors recently in Perth's bustling Northbridge. The venue is a modest size and is run alongside a recording studio by owner Mike O'Hanlon. With a genuine passion for audio and music, Mike decided the venue required the attention of an expert who could get the best result out of it. George Nikoloudis was hired to analyse and implement suitable gear into the Bird. As Mike notes, "George was the key guy in selecting and installing gear. George is a local legend, live/studio engineer. He's got a real feel for the strengths and weaknesses of the analogue and digital realms and it's obvious that his main agenda lies in the venue sounding good."
RCF found its way into the Bird with some products of the professional range. "For fold back, we use ART powered wedges hung up high, basically hanging off the back of the FOH speakers as well as two 'floaters' that we place around the stage as they are needed." Overall Mike is very happy with George’s work and the outcome, "it’s worth spending that bit of time/money on audio gear, people notice good sound, even if it’s subliminal.”
