BURBANK, CA–Giving place to more than 300 guests roaming among the 10-foot elephant topiaries, a three-story Ferris wheel, carousel, house of mirrors, bumper cars, whack-a-mole game, poker tables, and fireworks lighting up the night sky, New York Street on the Warner Brothers back lot was more than ideally suited for hosting Ellen DeGeneres’ 50th birthday party.

In keeping with professional decorum, the crew from Santa Fe Springs, CA-based Goodman Audio Services cast a distinctly low-profile shadow over the event in comparison to the stiltwalkers working the crowd in vintage carnival attire, but their work nonetheless bathed those assembled in the main performance area with a sonic shower of clean, articulate, high-horsepower sound emanating from QSC WideLine-10 enclosures flown 10 per side on the main stage. more
