VENUE Supports Mumford & Sons

Chris Pollard, FOH for Mumford & Sons

With 2011 Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Rock Song (“Little Lion Man”), Mumford & Sons have grown into a hot property in less time than it takes some bands to record an album. The West London-based quartet have topped the charts in Australia, recorded with the Kinks’ Ray Davies, and completed a sold out US tour that included appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

The band’s FOH engineer, Chris Pollard, selected the VENUE SC48 for the US leg of their recent tour, having used a VENUE Profile System for their earlier European dates. As Pollard explains, the move to the SC48 was strictly a practical one. “We wanted to scale down so we could carry our whole rig in the trailer,” he says, adding that the transition from the larger Profile console was a seamless one. “After just a couple of shows, it was really like having the same desk.”
