There’s more to the NAMM Show than expansive product displays and informative educational sessions. The annual winter gathering at the Anaheim Convention Center also serves as a showcase for impressive musical talent.
Recording stars from a wide range of genres like Animals As Leaders and country music’s Josh Gallagher took to the Grand Plaza Stage in the pavilion at the convention centre entrance for a series of day and night performances sponsored by Yamaha.
Endowing the stage with brightness and colour to give it a tour-like feel for the 100,000 or so show attendees was a powerful rig supplied by 4Wall Entertainment that featured a collection of 58 CHAUVET Professional Maverick MK3 Wash fixtures.
The wide zoom range (7° to 45°) and colour rendering capabilities of the RGBW moving LED fixtures were critical to keeping looks on the stage varied throughout the four-day-long NAMM show, while their output ensured that it glittered even during daylight hours, as well as for the night concerts, which were designed by Rob Koenig.
Jonathan Daroca of 4Wall Entertainment, who served as Assistant Production Manager/Lighting Designer and Thomas Pendergrass of NAMM, who worked as the Programmer & Assistant Programmer also contributed to the success of the Grand Plaza Stage shows.
“It was an honour to have our Maverick MK3 Wash fixtures selected to light the stage at a convention that draws so many music industry professionals,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “We’re happy that we were able to provide an exciting visual backdrop to so many great performers.”
