Residents in the surrounding communities of the National Heroes Park and patrons can look forward to the latest in sound technology and quality provided by Tru Tone Music Limited from the main stage of The Best Dressed Fun in the Son tomorrow.

"There is no other sound like this available south of Boston, USA, today. It is so sophisticated that it allows the major sound reflections to remain within the park, while providing beautiful sound leaks of uplifting and enriching music outside of the park," show producer Tommy Cowan said.

The system is the JBL VerTec line array system, which gives equal distribution of sound throughout the entire venue, as the boxes are hoisted on cranes up to 55 feet in the air. It drives 280,000 watts of power through lab-grouping amplifiers and Crawford 1-mag generators.

Cowan explained that before set-up, the Tru Tone technician scouts the grounds and identifies the spots to which the sound should be directed. "This is how we are able to specifically target the sound to cover all areas of the National Heroes Park for the comfort of our patrons," he revealed.

In addition, a drone photographic system will be used to capture aerial views at the festival. "These drones can fly for about 15-20 minutes at a time and will allow our patrons to see aerial shots of the crowd and the performers on LED screens, which will be positioned throughout the venue," he noted.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is free to the public.
