EARPEACE was stoked to be involved in the AMP 24 event at Playback Recording Studio in Santa Barbara this past weekend.
AMP 24 is a 24-hour event that brings together some of the biggest names in the music industry. The event features 24 of the world’s top DJs spinning live music for 24 straight hours. The event supports The Arts Mentorship Program and the Building Dream from the Ground Up Capital Campaign. Support for this program enables funding for state-of-the-art studios, youth scholarships, dance companies and community classes, supporting music and the arts in the local Santa Barbara community.
Here at EARPEACE, we are always excited to get on board with a cause benefiting the growth of music and the arts, whether it be by giving back to the community or promoting hearing protection at concerts.
Kickoff with DJ Fab
The event kicked off at 8PM Saturday with DJ Fab on the turntables, starting off with a more laid back sound and environment. As the night progressed, so did the music. Each hour a new DJ took over, and brought a new style to mix. The DJ’s fed off the energy of those in the studio, and the atmosphere varied over the course of the evening as the DJ’s expertly controlled the room. The event continued on into the night as people shuffled in and out throughout the evening and into the next day. DJ’s kept the party rolling throughout the entire time.
The Studio space itself was quite impressive; wall to wall each room had its own unique vibe. Depending on which space you found yourself in during a set the entire mood could change with the music. The studio itself was fascinating enough to spend a full 24 hours in even without the musical accompaniment taking the space to the next level.
All in all in the night was a wild hit among the DJ’s and those who attended. EARPEACE was handed out. Everyone knew already or learned the importance of protecting their hearing and preventing tinnitus, by protecting the hearing of those who attend live concerts. A DJ knows best when it comes to how much damage an ear can receive over just one set, so trust your DJ’s and make sure you wear concert earplugs at any live events!
