Jack Johnson 2003

Jack Johnson – on the road with Bruce Johnston – and Geo-T

When Jack Johnson toured Australia and New Zealand recently he asked his Australian Tour Manager Nik Tischler to find FOH and monitor engineers for the tour.

Nik straight away called Bruce Johnson and Drew Menard. Nik said, “I have worked with Bruce and Drew on a number of international tours of Australia and knew they were the most competent and able guys in the country. That Bruce comes with his own PA system wasn’t a consideration – quite simply Bruce was the best man for the job – as his work with Oasis and silverchair shows.

Mixing Jack Johnson gave Bruce the chance to take out his brand new system – the amazing Nexo Geo-T in Canberra and Brisbane. At the Palais Theatre in Melbourne the system was Nexo Alpha and the three Enmore Theatre shows in Sydney utilised the in-house EAW system.

Mixing Jack Johnson on the Geo T was a dream,” said Bruce. “Actually all the shows were great – we had put the house system in the Enmore a while ago but hadn’t actually mixed on it – I was really impressed with how good it sounded.

The system for the Canberra show highlighted some of the many benefits of the Nexo Geo-T. The whole system fitted easily into an 8 tonne truck, and its capability to be flown at a high trim creates clearer sightlines. Unlike many other line-array systems, Nexo Geo-T is flown from within its own footprint. The system for Jack Johnson was down and in the truck inside an hour!
