Lake Charles, LA (August 28, 2006)–Pinnacle Entertainment’s L’Auberge du Lac dockside riverboat casino in Lake Charles always attracts a crowd from nearby Houston. The $365M resort’s 227-acre land-based facilities include several entertainment venues–including the 1,500-capacity L’Auberge Event Center, with its 40×30-foot stage and tiered seating, and intimate 165-seat Jack Daniel’s Bar & Grill, where the stage is a flat bed trailer attached to a real semi truck. Both venues feature Soundcraft consoles.
The Jack Daniel’s Bar & Grill, home to a Soundcraft LX7ii, at Pinnacle Entertainment’s L’Auberge du Lac dockside riverboat casino in Lake Charles, LA.Based on its reputation as a marine industry AV specialist, St. Louis-based Multicom Communications was contacted by Pinnacle to outfit each of these two performance spaces with sound reinforcement, lighting and video systems. Janet Fink, Multicom’s VP of operations and sales, chose to standardize on Soundcraft consoles, including 40-channel MH3 and Monitor 2 consoles in the Event Center and a 32-channel LX7ii in the restaurant/lounge.
According to Ron Richey, entertainment manager for L’Auberge, “Everyone seems to really like these boards, myself included, especially the VCAs on the MH3; those have been a big hit. I also really like the Soundcraft EQ, which is nice and warm. They’re good desks and we’re glad to be using them.”
Over the past few months, the L’Auberge Event Center has hosted the Beach Boys, Glen Campbell, Ann-Margret, Dwight Yoakam, Smokey Robinson, Merle Haggard, Jay Leno, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Lionel Richie and Bill Cosby, many of whom have used the Soundcraft consoles.
Multicom also put in a considerable amount of other Harman equipment along with the three new desks, including dbx DriveRack and Lexicon MPX550 processing, Crown Xs Series power amplifiers (plus CTs Series multichannel units in a distributed system), and various models of JBL loudspeakers throughout.
