SUPER BOWL: SUPER YAMAHA AND NEXO SET UPS

kristina-super-bowl_324.jpgBUENA PARK, Calif.─February marks three notable TV broadcasts watched around the globe: Super Bowl XLIII won by the Pittsburgh Steelers who defeated the Arizona Cardinals held Sunday, February 1 at the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Raymond James Stadium, in Tampa, Florida (NBC); the 51st Annual GRAMMY® Awards (CBS) on February 8 at the Staple Center in Los Angeles; and the 81st Academy Awards at the Kodak Theater on Sunday, February 22 (ABC). ATK Audiotek (Valencia, Ca.) will once again spearhead audio production for all three extravaganzas. ATK has been supplying audio production services for the Super Bowl since 1998 and for XLIII, they have chosen two Yamaha PM5Ds for audio coverage at the stadium. Faith Hill performed at the Pre-Game Show and Jennifer Hudson sang the National Anthem.

The Super Bowl Half-Time show received an assist by long-time Bruce Springsteen sound company, Audio Analysts (Colorado Springs, Col.) who provided two PM1Ds at monitors for Springsteen and the E Street Band’s performance. Mike Wolf at Clair Bros. advised that a Yamaha PM5D was used in the monitor rigs at both the Tampa Pepsi Smash on January 29th and 30th at the NFL Saturday Night Bash in Orlando. A Yamaha PM5D, provided by ASR Pro Events in Orlando, was used at front of house for the Tony Bennett performance at the NFL Owners Party.

ESI Audio, formerly known as E-Tech Systems of Tampa, used most of their 72 GEO-T boxes at approximately 10-12 pre-game parties and rally’s and many of the these events also used Yamaha consoles. ESI supplied two Yamaha PM5D-RH consoles for 38 Special’s performance at the Ritz Theater; two Yamaha M7CL-48 consoles for Sister Hazel at Whiskey Park North; an LS9-32 for Lo Cash Cowboys at Channelside; two Yamaha PM5D-RH consoles,10 NEXO GEO-T 4805s, two NEXO GEO T 2815s for down fills, and eight NEXO S2 subs for a performance by Wyclef Jean and Sean Kingston at the J.P. Morgan Event Center for ESPN; an LS9-32 console and 16 NEXO PS8s for an NFL Players Association jazz gig and 14 NEXO GEO T 4805s and four GEO T 2815s for down fills at a Sarah Evans concert both held at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center.

The busy sound company also supplied the Maxim Party at the Ritz Theater with a Yamaha M7CL-48 console; the NFL Players Association DJ used an M7CL-48 at A La Carte; a concert at Progress Energy Park for DirecTV used a YAMAHA PM5D-RH, 14 NEXO GEO-T 4805’s, four NEXO GEO-T 2815 for down fills, and 16 x NEXO CD18 Subs.
