Las Vegas (December 23, 2003)–Treasure Island Resort and Casino in Las Vegas recently debuted a new, live outdoor show in conjunction with its 10th anniversary called The Sirens of TI. The centerpiece of the resort’s recent remodeling efforts, the new show runs seven days per week with three shows daily. The renovation reflects the revitalization of Las Vegas and its marketing campaign, “What Happens Here, Stays Here.” In order to keep up with the vocal performance demands of the show, Las Vegas-based Mojave Systems, the design/build division of Mojave Electrics, specified Sennheiser Evolution 550 Series wireless systems for its durability, value and performance.
The Sennheiser EW500 transmitter body packs are worn with the four female leads’ costumes and are muted throughout various parts of the program. “Because the four female dancers are so extremely active, we often see these units fall to the ground again and again,” said Peter Charachere, sales manager for Mojave Systems. “The Sennheiser body pack units are housed in metal cases making them super strong and durable. Plus, the units are so well-engineered, they can take such abuses without compromising performance.”
The show is currently using Sennheiser transmitters, receivers and antennae distribution including the EM550. The system, which was installed by house engineers at Treasure Island, currently uses four Sennheiser wireless systems, with future plans to install two additional units. Like the previous show, The Battle of Buccaneer Bay, the majority of the Sirens show is in playback. The exception is the grand finale, which features all four live female vocals at once.
“The 550 receivers are at the control area out on the dock–about 200 feet from the stage,” said Brent Hageman, head of sound and lighting. “It’s great. The system was put together really quickly and easily. It’s a rock solid system–no interference or dropouts.”
