Pensacola Florida’s Vinyl Music Hall literally rose from the gutted rubble of a former 3-story Masonic temple in the heart of downtown, transforming itself in a mere two months into a live music destination for national and regional touring acts of all flavors and fans alike.


Dual DiGiCo SD8s—SD8-36 at FOH and SD8-24 at monitor world—are the heartbeat of the club’s audio core, along with a d&b audiotechnik Q1 PA system and Meyer USM-1P stage wedges, supplied by Pensacola’s All Pro Sound.
