The hills are alive with the sound of Nexo (and DiGiCo)

You may not have heard of Sydney’s Hills Concert Productions, but you have most likely seen and heard this highly mobile organisation’s productions turning up at a wide variety of production environments. Tucked away in Sydney’s northern hills district, Hills Concert Productions service a diverse customer base that generally includes a number of large summer festivals, and during the winter season, mid-sized indoor concerts and large pub/club gigs.

The company’s owner, Paget Blackburn has established Hills as a one-stop shop for production. He is well equipped with only premium quality gear. The list is pretty impressive with the inventory including a Midas H3000, Sienna and all the right audio toys with a Hog 2000 and a Grand MA front his lighting. Hills Concert Productions has been a Nexo Alpha owner for some time courtesy of Sydney Nexo retailer Smithy’s, and has had the results you would expect from a premium product of this class. This mix of gear and happy clients has made further expansion possible and recently Paget made the big leap into a Nexo Geo-S compact array system and a DiGiCo D1-Live digital mixing console.

Paget has made it his business to keep with the most current technology and is known around the Sydney area as a “pretty hardcore shopper”, when it comes to testing products and chasing the right gear. His efforts have paid off with a very flexible equipment inventory.

Hills Concert Productions also has a healthy business sub-hiring gear to other production companies, which has greatly extended the company’s reach. “Premium-Grade gear leads to high customer satisfaction and attracts a lot of sub-hire business, if you’ve got the right equipment”, comments Paget. It must be working, as acts like Anthony Callea, Shannon Noll, Jimmy Barnes, The Spanish Festival and a host of others will attest to the positively great results they have had working with Hills Concert Productions.
