Inspired by his extensive travels through the Holy Lands, Dr. Gerald Mann envisioned a modern version of a Greco-Roman amphitheatre offering the intimacy and symmetry of those timeless venues. In 1997, Overland Partners was commissioned by the Riverbend Church to design and build the multi award-winning building.
Designed in a classical style, the venue seats over 2,300. Recently, the Centre played host to a special NEXO presentation by FILO Pro Audio of Austin, Texas. Accustomed to holding many high-end events in the venue, Riverbend was set up for a demonstration of a NEXO GEO S 12 System with NX 4x4 amplifiers and a Yamaha M7CL digital audio console. A performance by former Motown artist Rayvon who took center stage, provided the backdrop for the event.
“We have covered private, corporate and concert events with nothing but praise for our NEXO GEO S rig,” states Howard Fletcher of FILO. “The system is currently booked for 26 events, and its performance has exceeded our expectations.”
