Kicker Performance Audio and Jeep Sponsoring Jeep Summer Concert Series

By : Amanda Dyar on Thursday, September 25, 2014 | 3:34 PM

Thursday, September 25, 2014

KICKER Performance Audio and Jeep will be sponsoring the Jeep Summer Concert Series taking place on October 4th. Read on.

KICKER Performance Audio joins Jeep in sponsoring an encore performance of the Jeep Summer Concert Series at Red Rocks with the indie rock band O.A.R. performing at the legendary Colorado amphitheater on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014.


KICKER has long history with the Jeep, having built vehicle-specific audio systems for the auto manufacturer over the years, including a current custom package available for the Jeep Wrangler. Several vehicles outfitted with custom KICKER Audio systems will be on display at the event along with KICKER's Xtreme Recreational Vehicle (XRV), a tractor trailer featuring a 26,000-watt “boom room.” In addition to the loaded Jeeps and the XRV, KICKER will be giving out prize packages of car and home audio gear to some of the 10,000 spectators expected to attend the concert.

This is not the first time KICKER Audio rocked Red Rocks. The KICKER XRV thrilled the crowd at the Morrison, Colo. amphitheater on January 31, 2014 when hip-hop band Jurassic 5 headlined Icelantic Ski’s third annual Winter on the Rocks concert. KICKER also supported that show with custom vehicles and prize giveaways.

“We had such fun working with Jeep and the folks at Red Rocks earlier this year that we were delighted to be a part of this encore performance,” said Steve Irby, KICKER’s president and co-founder. “It’s an iconic venue, and Jeep is an iconic brand, and we feel that KICKER has become an icon of car audio as well, so it felt like a great fit for us.”

The company has a history of supporting concert events that, like its products, appeal to a wide audience of music lovers. For example, the KICKER Country Stampede country music festival was held in Manhattan, Kans. on June 26-29, 2014. This was the second year in which KICKER was the lead sponsor of the event that has showcased some of the genre’s biggest stars, including Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, and Keith Urban.

“The reason we all got into this business, the reason we exist, is because we love music,” added Irby. “And supporting these live performances, across all styles and genres, is a great way for us to reach our fellow music fans and showcase our diverse line of audio products.”

KICKER Performance Audio products, a division of Stillwater Designs and Audio, Inc.®, are available for the home and mobile audio aftermarket at authorized dealers worldwide, and also as selected Original Equipment through other manufacturers. Consumers needing more information on KICKER or Livin’ Loud® may call the Consumer Information Line at 1-800-256-5425 or visit the brand website at www.KICKER.com.

Blake McIver Music Tour Starting With The Rockwell Table & Stage

Former child star Black McIver (The Little Rascals, Full House) is kicking off his new Time Manipulator tour in California at the Rockwell Table & Stage on October 2nd. Fans looking to attend the show can now purchase tickets via the official event page on Facebook. Ready to learn more? Read on.

From the Press Release
Blake McIver, best known for his acting turns in the likes of The Little Rascals and Full House, will be showcasing his musical skills next month.


McIver, whose music is a powerful blend of pop, soul, and gospel, is launching his debut alum The Time Manipulator at Rockwell in Los Angeles on Thursday October 2nd.

And no, music isn't something new for the former child star.

"I started writing music when I was about nineteen and I think I always wanted to but I was sort of afraid of it and sorted of running from it", McIver declared in a recent interview. "I knew it was an ultimate passion and sometimes the thing we are suppose to do we run from the most. When I finally sat down and started writing, I realized I had a lot of stories to tell through songs and a lot of things to say. So I kept at it and I am still going at it."

The multi-talented entertainer has been described as having “a tremendous vocal range, and a style and artistry reserved for singers twice his age” by broadwayworld.com and backstage.com has called him “mesmerizing; a singer of great range and texture.”

McIver's sound is a throwback to greats like Elton John.

"I am really inspired by singer-songwriters", the musician/actor said in a recent interview. "There is a lot of Elton John influence. I am also really inspired by this music of early Motown. That kind of late 50s and early 60s soul movement inspired a lot of my work."

Who : Blake McIver

Where : Rockwell, Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA

When : Thursday October 2, 8:00 PM

Samsung Electronics Announces 27-inch S27D590C Full HD Curved Monitor

Samsung Electronics has revealed the new 27-inch S27D590C Full HD Curved Monitor. Read on.

Samsung Electronics announces the 27-inch S27D590C Full HD Curved Monitor designed to enhance visually compelling entertainment content. The display creates a more immersive viewing experience through its curved design and innovative features.


“Our new, 27-inch curved monitor takes movie watching and gaming to new heights, from the monitor’s unique curved screen and comprehensive entertainment features, to the incredible picture quality and the impressive sleek design,” said Phil Gaut, Director of Display, Samsung UK & Ireland. “The S27D590C further emphasizes our focus to create a truly immersive and unforgettable entertainment experience.”

Ultimate Viewing Experience
The curvature of the S27D590C improves the viewing experience in comparison to traditional flat screen monitors, as the screen boasts nearly uniform viewing distances from the center of the screen to its edges. This curve of the screen matches the natural curve of the human eye and makes it easy for viewers to completely immerse themselves in games and films.

Additionally, the screen’s curve creates a wider field of view and greater sense of depth, which enables viewers to enjoy a panoramic experience and gives the screen a 3D-like effect. The 3D effect is particularly apparent when enjoying games, such as racing and flight simulators, avatar-based adventures and shooting games.

With an ultra-wide viewing angle of 178 degrees, both horizontally and vertically, the curved monitor’s vertical alignment (VA) panel optimizes the viewing experience from any position and minimizes picture distortion. In addition, the S27D590C’s Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio technology delivers a high contrast ratio of 3000:1 and 350 cd/m2 brightness help produce life-like images with deeper blacks, pristine whites and brighter colors.

Optimized for Entertainment
The integration of enhanced entertainment features takes gaming and multimedia content experiences to the next level. The monitor comes fully equipped with built-in 5-watt dual speakers that deliver high-quality stereo sound as well as a game mode function that can be quickly activated with a simple touch of a button. The game mode intelligently detects on-screen changes and corrects blurry images, enhances colors and alters contrast for improved visibility of in-game action.

The monitor has a minimalist design, ensuring viewers enjoy the enhanced viewing experience of the curved screen without any distraction. Users can also easily adjust the screen angle using the tilt screen function to minimize glare and reflection. The monitor also supports 100x100 mm VESA standard brackets for stress-free wall or table mounting.
