Las Vegas, NV (March 28, 2007)--New York City is known for its Irish ex-pat culture; Las Vegas....er, not so much. So it was only right then, when the Nevada city was celebrating St. Patrick's Day a few week ago, that the hotel/casino New York-New York throw its annual Celtic Feis (festival), where Grosz Live Productions of Las Vegas erected a substantial SR system with products from the DAS Audio catalog.
This year's Celtic Feis festivities included Las Vegas' favorite red-headed comedian, Carrot Top, hosting a St. Patrick's Day parade through the popular hotel/casino, as well as live music provided by Sin E RiRa, Nine Fine Irishmen's house band, along with Elevation, a U2 cover band, plus other performers. A substantial stage was erected right under the Brooklyn Bridge's arches, and the sound system was equally impressive, as Forrest Grosz, owner of Grosz Live Productions explained.
"We flew eight Aero CA-28A self-powered mid-high line array elements-four on each side of the stage-and placed four CA-215A subwoofers under the stage," said Grosz. For the performers, we had five DAS Audio SM-15A self-powered floor monitors on the stage. This setup provided plenty of power, and because everything is self-powered and self-processed, it made the entire setup and tear down process a lot easier, since we didn't have to move any heavy amplifiers."
