Thanks for checking out another edition of “Boxtalk with The Boxtones” where the multi-award winning Scottish/Canadian band share more Shure gear in their tech talk section, the lowdown on a new movie from “The Boss” Bruce Springsteen and all the details on a local band competition with HUGE prizes! All this and more below!


As you may or may not know, the team at Shure have an amazing line of digital microphones called MOTIV (portable devices for recording your ideas on the go). With this innovative high-end audio equipment you need a mobile recording App that offers you easy control over pretty much everything there is to do with capturing your idea. We’d like to introduce to you the FREE ShurePlus MOTIV Audio app complete with so many little extras like easy file sharing, advanced audio settings like cartridge selection, output adjustments, wind noise reduction (a must for outdoor inspiration), high resolution monitoring and so much more!

Download the free App today and check it out for yourself.


Who else grew up in a household that blared tunes from the legendary US rocker Bruce Springsteen? And did you know there’s a new film heading to cinemas this Summer called “Blinded By The Light” that focuses on the lyrical messages and soulful songs from The Boss? The film takes place in England in 1987 where a young teen is introduced to Springsteen, which opens his eyes to a whole new world of dreaming, expressing himself and being the best version of himself he can be! The film is due out mid-August so keep an eye out for the official release date here in the UAE (you know we will).


If there was a Battle of the Bands competition worth talking about, it’s the one happening this Summer at McGettigan’s DWTC! A huge grand prize of 10K cash, a recording session for one radio-friendly track, an eight-week paid residency at McGettigan’s and more! And in our personal opinion, the best part will be getting to experience being at SoundStruck Studios (where we spent half a year recording our full length album ‘Home’ with Universal Music MENA). Be sure to make the first heat at McGettigan’s Dubai World Trade Centre on Monday, June 10th and every Monday thereafter until they have a winner!

As an added bonus, you will also receive a FREE beverage upon arrival – that’s just one more reason to attend and cheer on the local talent! For more info, visit McGettigan’s DWTC event page .
