Aviom’s personal monitor mixing system and digital snakes have been seen on numerous high-profile touring gigs this summer, including Trevor Lawrence Jr., who used his custom Aviom monitor rig onstage while playing drums with Alicia Keys at the Live Earth concert in New Jersey. Meanwhile, Hall & Oates treated the rain-soaked Fourth of July crowd with a 90-minute performance of their greatest hits. Broadcast live on ABC television, the whole band used Aviom personal mixers for their monitors.

For select summer concerts in the park, SIA Acoustics employed an Aviom Pro64 digital snake during the 10-week MAD SQ MUSIC concert series featuring well-known jazz and R&B performers in New York City’s Madison Square Park.

Playing drums for American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, Felix “D-Kat” Pollard has been enjoying the improved onstage control with his Pro16 personal monitor mixing system. “When I’m playing live," Pollard says, "I like to be able to do what I want to do with my mix without having to rely solely on the monitor engineer. This tour has been my first chance to use the Aviom system regularly, and it’s exactly what I needed to get that next level of control over what I hear in my in-ear system. Now, I can’t imagine playing a gig without it.”

Another drummer, Chicago’s Danny Seraphine, has been using his Aviom monitor rig on the road in support of his new band’s debut CD, California Transit Authority.

Also, the 8-piece horn section playing behind popular contemporary crooner Michael Buble is using the Aviom monitor mixing system on their current world tour. According to third trumpeter Justin Ray, “Aviom gives me the ability to deal quickly and comfortably with all of the idiosyncrasies and surprises that arise when playing live."

Overseas, UK sound company Wigwam has been supporting international superstar George Michael’s stadium tour with Aviom personal monitor mixers for the band.
