RE: Sound at the Cavern




One of the Cavern sound guys, upon noticing the large amount of, um, constructive criticism on here about the Cavern's sound, decided to write us a letter. Here it is:


Re: Sound at the Cavern

I just wanted to tell you a little about the p.a. system at the Cavern and the people who operate it. The p.a. system was installed last September when Spune Productions took over as booking agent/talent buyer. Glen Squibb is the production manager at The Cavern and Hailey’s Club. He works with Daughter Entertainment and Spune Productions. He selected the very best components for the p.a. with the Cavern’s budget, with most of the money invested in an Allen & Heath GL2400 console and Turbosound speakers. It is actually a good system for a small venue like The Cavern. One night, I walked in to the Cavern to see Mazinga Phazer II and this band from NYC called Downtown (very disappointing). Anyway, the sound was awful. I mean really bad. Glen wasn’t there that night. You see, Glen does a great job. He is the main sound guy at Hailey’s, so whenever there was a Hailey’s show he would have to find someone to cover his job at the Cavern. The guy that was there that night didn’t know anything about audio. So I started helping out. Long story short, in March I started running sound at the Cavern whenever Glen is at Hailey’s. So far, I have had no complaints. In fact, I have received many compliments and a few bands have requested I tour with them. I will do my very best to make the bands sound their very best. I love working at the Cavern and I hope to help make the Cavern the very best little venue in Dallas. The owners have been very helpful. I suggested that they relocate the A/C unit so that the electromagnetic field doesn’t get looped back through the p.a. system (it used to be above the stage). They spent $500 to relocate it two weeks ago. The Cavern makes ZERO money off the door. All the door cover goes to the bands and a few $$$ to the sound guy. I don’t do bookings, but I know that it is hard to always have stellar bands every night. That’s why there is the occasional shit band. We don’t like it either.

Cordially,

Josh @ The Cavern

whoever was running sound at the blackarm, fra pandolf, silk stocking show did a great job. My only complaint is a cop threatened to throw me in jail for loading out my gear at 2 in the morning on Greenville. I don't see any other way to park your car to load out short of carrying your stuff three blocks.

this looks like its going to be standard procedure for now on outside the cavern from what the cop said.

Speaking of sound people, Metrognome Collective still needs sound volunteers, hangers of curtains, builders of bass traps, acoustic foam, etc. bad sound makes baby gnomes cry.

Also, if you want to donate a powered subwoofer, or another monitor amp, we would be forever grateful.

i don't think people complain as much about the sound out front as they do about the sound on stage..

there's only one monitor in the front. is there any talk of getting another? or a bigger amp for the monitors?

i know the stage is pretty small....

Yeah, there are only two monitor mixes. We have three monitors but one has a bad driver. I have a QSC 1500a that I would bring up there if we can repair the monitor.

I know I will get shit for this because I always do on this blog, but actually I designed the PA for The cavern and sold it to them for cost. The pa is actually more than adequate for that size room. If the sound is bad it is usually because of the sound guy. Josh did a great job saturday. Glenn does a good job too. I had no complaints about the sound on saturday. They just need good backup sound guys who know the system.

The sound guy doesnt get a little $$$ he gets a sizeable chunk, like $100 flat from what I hear, instead of a percentage. This hurts bands and the Cavern is the only place that has this policy in place that I know of. Shouldn't it be in the Caverns budget as a "club" to pay the soundguy? God forbid this should ever happen but what if a show were booked there and the bands didn't bring out that many people but still had to pay the soundguy $100? If that much wasn't made at the door would the bands have to pay out of their pockets? Not knocking the soundguy but Cavern has some issues, only one of which is the $100 a night soundguy. And maybe they need a lesson in geography because Shiner is not an import.

I like turbosounds better than the JBL's they could afford. They were originally looking at Yamaha's. The high end JBL's are better, but not the lower end. Turbosound are pretty bad ass. It's only my opinion(and the opinion of most of the Pro Audio experts at Guitar Center). Turbosound are more popular in Europe than here. They can handle more power than the Cavern is currently pushing through them. If they ever upgrade the amps you will notice a differance. I have been at Guitar Center for almost 6 years now. We have the great convenience of doing A/B tests on a lot of this stuff. If they could have afforded SRX series JBL's I would have gotten them into those. They had a strict budget and I got them the best gear I could for the the budget they had.
We ended up going with behringer power amps so we could get them into better mains than they wanted. The Allen and Heath Board took up a good chunk of their budget. That was a good Idea though. A few upgrades down the road would be very inexpensive compared to replacing a whole board. Now if I coul have gotten them into that new Mackie ONYX 25ch. Shiiiiit. All that being said. It's a good system for a room that size. They need better mics and cables, but that is being picky. Before this system they had 2 crappy yamaha 15's and a 200watt behringer powered mixer.

...i mean, i get that the cavern is supposed to be all euro, but that doesn't have to mean that the wine is cheaper than effing tap water (i realize that isn't literaly true in the case of the cavern, but that ain't even 10 cents worth of water she pours into those red cups anyway)

More monitors would be nice. Also, maybe you could encourage the bands to reduce their stage volume a bit. I think that would also improve with a better monitoring environment. I think you're doing a great job w/ what you've got. It takes time to work out the kinks, and it's a tough room.

Now, on to the bar situation. I think 2 bud drafts in a little plastic cup for the band is kinda lame. If it's not cost feasible to just give the band tap beer all night, then how about a case of schlitz, or throw a cooler full of pbr on the stage. I think you'll quickly find that it's well worth the cost. This is an important factor to many touring bands and local bands, I think.

Now for the really ridiculous shit:

THE CAVERN SHOULD MOVE THE LIVE VENUE UPSTAIRS!!! chew on that.

Here's my issue with the Cavern...

It's good to see local bands at, but it is NOT a place to book bigger bands. The place is HORRIBLE when it's packed to see bigger touring acts.

The sound isn't the best at times, but Glen does a great job with what he has.

The female bartender is a fucking spaztic moron. She takes forever, overcharges and ignores you for any guy waiting to stick his dick down her throat and thrust.

I guess those are my main complaints...
mostly the small cramped ass space to see bigger touring acts and the disastrous cunt of a bartender they have.

The water thing I will give you, but what's the big deal? I'll agree it's not the place for national acts, but it's not like the owners of the Cavern arent reasonable people that can't be compromised with.

come on glenn you told me the budget and picked out the allen and heath board. you wanted yamaha 15's and I adjusted to get you into better mains.
I made zero profit on that deal to make sure you guys could get better stuff and my commission is based on profit. Designed might be a bit strong considering it's a pretty basic setup, but you did let me pick out everything else. The A&H was all your idea and I worked around it. I saved you you guys a few grand and made no commission. Just doin my part. At least let get a little cred.

I hear alot of talk about sound . Most Bands / dj's don't know much about good live sound they could have all the best equipment at their disposal and still sound like crap. I don't think it's wise to blame the venue for an evenings poor sound quality.Ultimatly it's the performers responsibility to make sure they themselves sound good. if that means getting to the club early , learning more about pa or mixers , musicians need to take responsibility for the way their music is going to be heard. Leaving it up to someone else is a good way to be let down.
For the most part it sounds like the cavern is doing what it can to improve sound quality. How about alittle help from the other professionals(musicians). Would you play your whole set out of tune?
Kuddos to the cavern!
Bad bad musicians who blame their instuments or equipment for poor sound quality.
For those who complain about sound quality : why don't you go out and spend money on equipment after a few hundred dollars I'm sure you'll change your tune.

if you want to get a good sound onstage at cavern(or most clubs for that matter) turn your guitar amps in towards you, NOT toward the audience. This provides the sound guy with more flexibility in the house sound. some bands are just sooooooo green. ughhh.

and I agree with paying the sound guy $100. probably more, you know why? they have to put up with crappy bands that need major attitude adjustments.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

this is Bub but I can't remember my password right now.

Right on about paying the FOH guy more. These guys work hard and late and then they have to listen to a lot of hatin'!

Mr. E, I think what you said about sound and the bands responsiility only goes so far. The thing is - a true musician is going to make the gig no matter what the obstacle, and you're probably not going to hear much whining. In a tiny club with no PA, or a small PA such as Cavern or Ave. arts it is MUCH more important for the musicians to balance themselves on the stage. It is almost always necessary for the Sound Engineer (who knows the room acoustics ,system, and hopefully some FOH tricks)to communicate this fact to the band or band leader. If someones got their 100 W guitar combo cranked to 7 on the front of the stage facing forward, you might want to say something instead of mixing around it. Usually musicians are more than happy to comply unless they're total retards, and from then on they will think of you as a wise soundguy who cares about their sound. It's all about communication. Unfortunately, there is never enough time to fully soundcheck everyone in the real world. quick linechecks are all most bands get, which is totally fine, but once those levels are set it's in the engineers hands. Most everything I've heard at the Cavern sounds fine, and I'm confident it will improve more over time. Josh and Glen, shake those hayta's off.

I wasn't bitching that it's Bud, just the quantity. If you want a happy band, let their broke asses get drunk!

it could be a great club if it didn't suck so much. It is fun to spontaneously form a band just for the purpose of playing the most obnoxiously raw unpracticed stuff to the frat kids at open mic night! We got shithammered watching like 5 dave mathew/ green day bands and then we (silver colt 44 - only the greatest musical experience you never had) rocked with a guitar, vocal, a floor tom, and a snare. By the end of the show, I stabbed my snare to death and kicked it from the stage. That's when the Too Short covers started. yep, good times at the liquid lounge.

"For those who complain about sound quality : why don't you go out and spend money on equipment after a few hundred dollars I'm sure you'll change your tune."
*Why don't you spend some money and get a soundsystem and maybe your patrons will change their tune.
" Leaving it up to someone else is a good way to be let down."
*If you're paying some brilliant sound engineer who SHOULD know the room, machines,levels, etc. a hundred dollars because that's his job then don't blame the bands because he doesn't know how to mix the room right. A band does not operate in this room all the time, the soundguy does. A soundguy shouldn't care if he likes the bands or hates the bands cause they're shitty. The soundman should make every band that performs there sound the best he can possibly make them sound. It is his JOB, he is employed and making money to do a JOB. It is not his job to not care and to complain because he doesn't like the band that was booked. Where the hell is the professionalism? The band showed up to do their job, PLAY- and the soundguy should show up to do his. Extra stars if the bands know how to work a PA, a lot of them do, but unfortunately they're not given the option of NOT using the soundguy if they don't want him. At this point my problem is not so much the sound but the attitude these people display. It's shitty when a soundguy doesn't like a band and so he just doesn't bother. It's dumb for someone who doesn't even own a proper soundsystem to jump into this debate at all. Call us "haters" or complainers but maybe take a clue that you could improve some things and we as the people that frequent your establishments are just trying to clue you in.

Why is a bar or club going to spend the cash on a sound system when most the bands playing that place aren't going to pack the house so how do you really justify such a lease or investment? I'm not a bar owner, but those guys are always about the bottom line. Whether they are in it for the love of music or not. The Cavern's capacity is only so large, so I would say for a place that size, you're lucky they actually have a sound guy.
Don't like it? Well, I'm sure you can get a gig at Carson's Place. you may have to do a Yellowcard cover, but hey the sound's good, the girls are pretty, and you probably get a bar tab.
