Art Alexakis, lead singer and guitarist for Everclear, preforming liveNow in its fourth year, the annual Summerland tour is devised by Art Alexakis, front man of the popular 90s alternative rock band, Everclear. This year’s tour comprises Everclear, Toadies, Fuel, and American Hi-Fi, traveling across North America to over 30 different venues.

Alexakis gives credit to the iLive systems – comprising of two iLive-T112 Control Surfaces and iDR-32 MixRacks - for playing a huge role in the success.

“We have used Allen & Heath for the last couple of years and the sound has just been phenomenal. I am so glad to be able to use them on every tour,” says Alexakis.

According to Derek Steinman, Production Manager/FOH of Everclear/Summerland Tour, iLive provides superiority in sound that surpasses the competition.

The board sells itself, and I can just hit the ground running. This console allows me to be connected to the band and get a focused mix at the same time,” said Steinman.

John Riley, Monitor Engineer/Stage Manager, strongly believes Allen & Heath created the best console on the market.

“We only wanted this brand. It’s simple and I personally favor the side chain filters and side chain compressions. I recommend Allen & Heath to all my engineering friends!” says Riley.
