Mumford & Sons relying on Capital Sound and MHA for 2013 tour

Capital Sound is teaming up with fellow Martin Audio MLA rental company, MHA, to handle the 2013 Mumford and Sons tour on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Capital Sound crew has a long association with MHA’s Mike Scarfe, meaning the two firms now enjoy an excellent working relationship.

“Mike was AC/DC's FOH engineer from around 1978-84 when Capital project manager Martin Connolly was their monitor man and I and got my first job building loudspeakers for ACDC at age 17,” said Capital Sound general manager Paul Timmins.

MHA is supplying the loudspeaker system for the sold out US East Coast leg of the world tour, which gets underway at TD Gardens in Boston tomorrow (February 5th).

“Mike is going out as one of the four PA crew for the US leg,” Timmins continued. “We’re sending Fabrice Quirin from the UK and the full control package has gone by sea container. The FOH console remains the trusty Midas XL4 whilst the monitor console is a DiGiCo SD10.”

Capital Sound takes over at the beginning of March when the band lands back in Europe, with the first gig set to take place at Stodola in Warsaw on March 4th.
