Bad sound all around

Posted By on Mon, Jul 15, 2019 at 3:33 PM

To Halifax's favourite bar: Something has to be done about the sound quality and PA system currently in place—or perhaps those mixing the sound themselves—because I believe yours has become one of the worst live music venues in the city for actually hearing anything.

I've attended many live music events in this bar, and I'm almost always disappointed with the volume of the vocals and the projection of the sound in the space in general. But, after a recent concert where the acts were vocally inaudible, both from terrible sound mixing and quality but also the volume of disinterested patrons, I will no longer be attending live music in this space—at least until something is done.

It also seems ridiculous that big festivals town don't hold a venue accountable for quality when they are paying for world-class acts to perform in the city. It's disrespectful to the artists, and the patrons, and only reveals the lack of consideration for your audience.—Musicians who care
