AV Vegas Rocks ACM Awards for Stoney’s Rockin’ Country
After two harrowing days of high winds during the set up, the winds died down and the sun came out, just in time for the stars to show up on ACM weekend. Stoney’s hosted the Tailgate for a Cause event at Town Square in Vegas and AV Vegas brought out the stage, climber, audio, lighting, backline and a crew of 11 techs to operate two stages of non-stop country music. The music was great, the cowgirls were pretty and the bar b que ribs were amazing. Wish we could do it again tomorrow. This was the first outdoor country festival we have done since the tragic Route 91. We will continue to do these great country events for anyone who cares to put them on, especially the great Route 91 event, as long as we have breath, loudspeakers and guitar amps.
AV Vegas was selected to provide sound and backline for a party at Drai’s Beachclub Las Vegas. It was Corona’s Super Bowl party. The load in was at 5am, as it required a lot of gear and was a long push to get the gear up to the club. Our techs set the stage and all of the gear just as requested by the artist, Cypress Hill. AV Vegas used our JBL V20 line arrays over S25 subs and our new JBL M22 monitor wedges onstage. Our backline department supplied all of the instruments requested by the band.
Late 2014 AV Vegas was aproached to assist in a semi-difficult design for a large medical conference. The Semi-difficultism was due to the fact that rigging points and the video screen sizes and formats needed for this projects did not exist. The Venue just couldnt give the client the points needed without shifting the overall footprint of the clients vision. We were able to accomplish the room build outs using 2 systems of self climbing truss. The video screens were custom built and placed in a triangular configuration to be displayed in the round. It is now 2015 and our client is happy to reach out to AV Vegas once again to discuss this years event needs. Pictured are conceputual renderings to build pictures to reality!
