GJM Sound and Lighting of Placerville, CA recently installed a sound and lighting system for the Jackson (California) Rancheria Casino ballroom that is used as its indoor concert hall, and it is also designed for use with the casino’s outdoor event center.
Owned and operated by the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwok Indians, the ballroom concert venue seats approximately 600, while the outdoor venue seats 1,000. Both venues offer a variety of entertainment for their guests from rock and blues bands, to reggae and jazz, as well as comedy acts.
“The casino wanted to go digital for both front of house and monitor consoles and were sold on the Yamaha M7CL-48ES and LS9 digital consoles working together as a team,” states Greg Mace, owner of GJM Sound and Lighting. “The ES version of the M7CL was chosen because it is a more cost effective and convenient solution than having to purchase and install a splitter for an analog snake.”
The Yamaha M7CL is used primarily as the casino’s front of house console, and the Yamaha LS9 console is used in the “crows nest” which is located in the a/v booth overlooking the entire casino ballroom.
The LS9 is also used for front of house when events require a smaller amount of channels; for example, presentations, speeches, or comedy acts.
