With the breathtaking eastern foot of Table Mountain as a backdrop, British indie rockers, James, performed at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens on 24 November 2018. The full technical was supplied by Audio Engineering, who used their brand-new MA dot2 to run the spectacular show.
“What an excellent production!” said Marcel Bezuidenhout, owner of Audio Engineering based in Cape Town. “James rocked it out at the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts playing favourite hits like Lose Control, Sit Down and material from their 15th studio album, Living in Extraordinary Times.”
Very proud to be associated with the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts for the past twenty years, Marcel has been pleased to watch the annual event take off as his company has steadily built up a retinue of professional gear, the latest being the investment of an MA Lighting dot2 console purchased from DWR Distribution. Bradley Bruchhausen and Jethro Jordaan from DWR Cape Town will offer the necessary training and support when needed.
“We chose the dot2 to align ourselves with current industry trends in South Africa and more specifically Cape Town,” Bezuidenhout elaborated. “The size and capabilities of the console make it very attractive for our small to medium events, however, we made it work for James, an International show, pretty much straight out of the box, where it was used by lighting designer JP Willson.”
With an exceptionally busy season, the console’s very first gig was for a film shoot, followed by the James concert, and was then used on twenty different shows during December.
“Marcel and his team at Audio Engineering are a passionate group of individuals, continually striving to fine-tune their craft,” said Robert Izzett of DWR. “They work hard, love what they do and are an inspiration to watch. Thank you for your continued support.”
