The second annual HangOut Festival was held May 20-22, 2011, in Gulf Shores, Ala. Thousands flocked to the festival to hear such great performances as those from Paul Simon, the Foo Fighters, Widespread Panic, Rich Aucoin and so many more. Created by Concerts for the Coast, the festival is part of a larger plan to bring much-needed economic support to the Gulf area after the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Sound company StagePro Inc. (Ottawa, Kan.) provided sound, lighting and stage packages for the second stage, which included a JBL VerTec array (4889 tops and 4880A subs with Version 4 presets) with Dolby Lake processing and Crest power. Consoles included Midas Pro-6 digital and an analog Heritage.

“Every one of the artist’s engineers was very happy, the comments were great all weekend,” says StagePro’s Danny Herman. “The combination of the Crest power, the VerTec with the 4880A subs and Midas consoles seemed to please everybody.”

Nine techs handled the system—Jay Waller (sound), Herman (sound), Jon Northrup (sound), Jeff Bryant (sound), Craig Ahneman (lighting), Jason Dominguez (lighting), AJ Avery (lighting), Conner Ivey (lighting), Cole Crocket (lighting)—whom Herman is quick to applaud. “The staff deserves most of the praise. You can have the best gear in the world, but if you don’t have people around you that can operate that gear correctly, there’s no point in hanging your rig. It was a well-run festival and everybody on-site was happy to be involved with it.”
