The 14th Annual T.J. Martell Foundation Family Day was recently held in the Roseland Ballroom in New York City.
The T.J. Martell Foundation is the music industry’s largest foundation that funds innovative medical research focused on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS.
The afternoon event featured live performances by many well-known artists including Jason Mraz, Ed Wheeran, Austin Mahone and Emblem 3. Audio Production Services (APS), located in Amawalk, New York, provided a dBTechnologies-based sound reinforcement system for the event.
The Roseland Ballroom, located in the heart of the theater district in New York City, is a large, multi-purpose venue with a main floor and balcony area and standing room capacity of 3,200.
“The dBTechnologies DVA line arrays was ideal for the event,” explains Simon Nathan, owner of APS. “The line array has more than enough power to cover the audience area and also offers fidelity to compliment the eclectic mix of performers.”
Nathan hung left-right DVA line arrays consisting of two T12 and three T4 enclosures per side. Front fill was provided by four T4 boxes spread across the lip of the stage; low end was driven by two S-30 subwoofers along with two DM12 monitors.
The monitor rig consisted of eight DVX DM12 stage monitors; sidefill was provided by stand-mounted DM15s (two) and DM12s (one) with a Sub 15 base on each side of the stage.
The sold-out event was produced by E1, Ltd, based out of Irvington-On-Hudson, New York.
“As a producer of a large variety of special events that range in scale, the sound system provided by APS always brings the most positive comments from the artists on stage and from our clients – and this even was no exception,” explains Raymond Ovetsky, owner of E1 Ltd. “Many of the sound engineers for the artists were quite complimentary on the quality and power of the dBTechnologies system.
“The house system was not only powerful – given its small footprint – but was also very clear and had exceptionally even dispersion throughout the room and balcony area. The subs were tremendous. It was a very successful event in part due to the terrific sound system provided by APS.”
