Entec’s Ed Hammond co-ordinated all the audio requirement, which comprised a left and right stack of three d&b Q1s, three Q-SUBS and a B2 sub per side, together with six d&b M4 wedges, all powered by d&b D12 amps.
The consoles were a Yamaha M7 for front-of-house and a Midas Verona for foldback, and the package included an assortment of mics and stands.
Celebrating the Best of Britannia, the bands all shared a backline featuring Marshall amps and Natal drums.
The lighting and structural spec for this was already complete, so Entec supplied all the trussing needed to build the stage, Musion screen and the projection equipment.
Ten Robe LEDWash 600s, four MAC 700 Profiles and four MAC700 Washes made up the lighting rig, complete with an Avo Tiger Touch for control.
The audio featured a d&b E12 speaker and a B4 sub per side, D12 amps and audio tracks were played back through Musion’s own system which also controlled the video. Two hand-held radio mics were supplied by Entec for Q&A sessions, and sound was run off generated power.
Pod Bluman Associates supplied the projection elements.
BOB illustrated how Entec can be extremely flexible as a rental operation, and pull all the stops out to make it happen. Adam Stevenson concludes, “We always enjoy working with Charlie and this was a great event in which to be involved for many reasons, including rising to the challenges of thinking quickly and on our feet to find solutions at short notice”.
Best of Britannia was extremely well received.
