Sunny Afternoon is the multi-Olivier Award winning musical based on the rise of one of the most influential bands of the 1960’s British Invasion – The Kinks.

In true Rock n’ Roll style the production is currently out on tour following this award winning West End residency. With a philosophy based around Live Music, the ultimate source, KV2 Audio products were the obvious choice for Sound Designer Matt McKenzie when considering which Sound System to tour.

Autograph Sound – one of Europe’s leading Theatre Sound suppliers – once again provided a complete KV2 solution for the 8 month UK tour. Reviews are phenomenal and follow many other recent collaborations between KV2 and Autograph such as Mamma Mia!, Annie, Kinky Boots and Bend it Like Beckham.

The tour takes in a wide variety of venues across the UK of various sizes. To tackle these Autograph provided a range of products from KV2’s ES, ESR and EX series.

The primary Front of House system is based around the large format full-range ESR215 enclosure with bespoke ESR3000 amplification and control units. The tour also uses the newly released active 3-way EX15, which features a coaxial 15”/1” driver and horn loaded 6” mid-range driver as well as products from the now well-established ES Series.

Speaking about the show design, award winning Sound Designer Matt comments “The Sound in this show is a really critical part of delivering the story. The dynamic range required is immense to deal with the intimate moments on stage one minute, followed by the production of a rock concert feel the next. Point source was my obvious choice because the tour is playing at venues ranging from the vast Edinburgh playhouse to the intimate theatre royal Brighton and there are not many speaker systems capable of delivering such subtleties with the musicality I required. It was a pleasure to be introduced to KV2 Audio as a speaker that delivered everything I needed, on every level for this show. The results truly are very impressive.…”

The show proves once again that you can create A Rock n’ Roll Fantasy by not just being A Dedicated Follower of Fashion-able loudspeaker brands or the “latest technology”.
