Awakening Productions (Davis, Calif.) recently celebrated its fifth anniversary by boosting its inventory of Bag End loudspeaker systems to nearly 40 cabinets. Earlier this year, Awakening Productions added four high-output, quad-18 Quartz subwoofer systems and four high-output midrange Crystals to its inventory.

“I consider those acquisitions as our real move into major outdoor festival work in the Northern California region,” said Joey Wisgirda, owner of Awakening Productions. “Up to this point, we had an outstanding system for clubs and mid-size venues, but this past spring, we made a deliberate decision, and the financial commitment, to move into heavy-duty outdoor festival work.

“I was first turned on to Bag End by a fellow musician, Sy Madden, the keyboardist for a band called the Epenema Black Cats [who uses a Bag Eng TA2000 12-inch monitor],” Wisgirda continued. “I was amazed at how great that thing sounded: the clarity, the response, everything. I had never heard anything like it. We just test-fired our new high-output system incorporating the Quartz and Crystals systems this past Mother's Day at the Whole Earth Festival in Davis.”

Awakening Productions most recent major gig was supplying sound in June for the “Village Stage” at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival Angels Camp in California, which featured Bob Marley's old backing band, The Whalers.
