SAN RAMON, California — Percussionist/singer/songwriter Carlos Elizalde refuses to let 2014 go gentle into that good night, with a string of performances in December to close out one of his most successful years to date. As always, Elizalde is relying on his world-class array of HARMAN’s AKG microphones for his final performances of 2014.

Elizalde is the leader of Rúckatan, a San Ramon, California-based Latin, reggae and world music band, where his vocals and stage presence deliver a message of positivity—something everyone can use around the holidays. On Saturday, December 13 and Sunday, December 14, Rúckatan will be sharing a bill with Richard Bean & Sapo, the Sal Rodriguez Band, Jesse Flores and more at the Alemany High School Hall in Mission Hills, California.

In addition, Rúckatan will be playing a free show at the R-Place Music Club in Livermore, California, on Saturday, December 20.

“I’m really looking forward to closing out 2014 with a bang!” Elizalde noted. “My AKG microphones have supported me so well throughout the year—and in many years before. It’s a luxury to be able to perform night in and night out with the knowledge that your microphone system will back you up 100 percent.”

Elizalde is the proud owner and avid user of an extensive AKG system, highlighted by his WMS4500 wireless microphone setup, which includes a D7 reference dynamic vocal microphone. Elizalde also uses an AKG IVM4500 in-ear monitor set and a D7 microphone for percussion.

Elizalde also recently added an AKG C214 large-diaphragm condenser microphone to his inventory. “I am using the C214 for an overhead to mic all of my LP hand percussions,” Elizalde added. “It’s really an incredible microphone!”
