BURBANK, CA, JUNE 17, 2011 - AuralexR Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader
in innovative sound control solutions, recently acoustically analyzed and
outfitted the rehearsal space for Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band, the
house band for the late night talk show, Conan, airing weeknights at 11
EDT/10 CDT on TBS. Located in Burbank, CA, the space serves as the band's
practice room when not on set.

 

Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band consists of Jimmy Vivino, band leader
and guitar; Mike Merrit, bass; James "The Worm" Wormworth, drums; Jerry
Vivino, saxophone; Scott Healy, keyboard; Richie "LaBamba" Rosenberg,
trombone, and Mark "The Loveman" Pender, trumpet.

 

The band was experiencing ear fatigue associated with the overall harshness
of the untreated room. The space was a very reflective environment, as it
consisted mainly of drywall, and the band needed a more accurate and
enjoyable environment to rehearse in for extended periods of time prior to
taping. The band heard about Auralex's Room Analysis program at this year's
Winter NAMM show and decided to submit measurements of its rehearsal space.
Auralex's FREE personalized Room Analysis can be downloaded from the Auralex
website ( <http://www.auralex.com> www.auralex.com).  Using the details of
the space, Application Specialist Ryan Gibbons drew up a suggestion of
acoustical treatment to improve the performance of the room.   

 

To combat the reflections between the parallel surfaces of the room, (22)
2'x4'x1" B24 ProPanels were installed on the side walls and the ceiling.
Also, to help scatter the reflections from the acoustic instruments (horns,
drums, etc) more effectively, and to help reduce the harshness of the space,
(11) T'Fusor diffusors were installed on the ceiling. In addition, Auralex
initially shipped the band a total of (eight) GRAMMA and Great GRAMMA Amp
Isolation risers for their practice space. 

 

The band is extremely satisfied with the outcome of the room and is so
impressed with the improvements that it requested four additional GRAMMAs
for its on-stage performances on Conan.
