Mandalay Bay Daylight Beach Club
AV Vegas helped celebrate the fashion season with MAGIC with Special performances by Spencer Ludwig, and Chevy Metal led by Hall of Fame drummer of the Foo Fighters, Taylor Hawkins. It goes without saying the desert sun and heat presents its own set of challenges when working with sensitive audio visual and sound components.
In the past outdoor audio used to mean settling for second rate loudspeakers and lots of amps crowding the stage to accommodate the acoustical challenges that typically come with an outdoor venue. With today’s technology there’s no compromise needed when planning a daytime outdoor event.
For this event we selected the JBL VTX V20’s; JBL VTX G28 and S25 subs, powered by Crown Amps and consoles by Yamaha, the CL5 & QL5.
Next up at the Daylight Beach Club at the Mandalay Bay we had the pleasure to “Rock With You” while celebrating 60 years of the “King of Pop” for a special Michael Jackson 60th Birthday Celebration.
For this commemorative occasion “Michael Jackson, The Diamond Celebration” we knew we couldn’t stop til we had enough…. we selected the JBL VTX V20’s and VTX G28, S28 subs powered by Crown Amps; Console: Yamaha QL1 for audio and for lighting we broke out the big guns! The Martin Viper Profiles, Quantum Washes, Mac Aura’s; Clay Paky Sharpies; GrandMA2 Lighting Console were just the ticket to make every guest a slave to the rhythm. Featured artists at this event included Usher and Mark Ronson.
Take a behind the scenes look at this outdoor build.
