With their first album “Un air de rien” certified triple platinum and more than 300 million views on YouTube, Trois Cafés Gourmands is one of the most popular groups in France.
Last month, they brought their distinctive blend of traditional folk music and modern pop to a free concert in front of thousands of people at the Théatre de La Mer in Valras-Plage, on the main square next to the sea in the south of France.
A NEXO STM system owned by the commune of Valras-Plage remains installed at the summer events site and includes side-by-side suspensions of 9 STM M28 line array elements with 6 STM B112 bass extension speakers, and STM S118 subs ground stacked at the front of the stage. NEXO ID24 speakers are used for front fills and PS15s for out fills.
The team from local company Decibel Event (equipment supplier for the city) was present to operate the system, along with the city’s technical staff. On-site technical assistance was provided by NEXO Engineering Support, with technical management for the city by Mr Moumard André.
“We were looking for a system for our outdoor events, and our partner Decibel Event offered us STM which we very quickly adopted, thanks to its versatility and dynamics” comments Mr Moumard André. “The configurations are different every week and demand a lot of adaptability from the sound system.
“Our technicians, supervised by NEXO Engineering Support, experienced the effectiveness of the STM system on a variety of summer concerts. A big thank you to NEXO France for their support with this investment, which will surely evolve further over the coming years.”
