2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend teams up with MA

It was Nashville’s turn to host the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend, and the four-day event in Music City was packed with enough star power on and off the ice to excite thousands of hockey fans. Morris, formerly known as Morris Light and Sound, was charged with conceptualizing and executing the audio and lighting installations and providing 24/7 production management at five venues during the weekend. Morris deployed grandMA2 consoles at three of the locations.

Matt Geasey, visuals department manager at Morris, and his team oversaw the lighting design, 3D rendering and equipment specifications for multiple activities. For the free IntelliCentrics Outdoor Concert Series, part of the Bridgestone Winter Park venue in front of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, he selected 90 x Clay Paky Mythos and 30 x Sharpy Wash 330 for the Honda Stage. Big & Rich kicked off the concerts on Thursday; the Eli Young Band wrapped up the festivities Sunday night. Morris installed 6 x MA NPU (Network Processing Unit), 1 x grandMA2 full-size and 1 x grandMA2 light at the Honda Stage where they controlled lighting fixtures; an additional grandMA2 light controlled video content for the LED screens.

The Bridgestone Arena was the site of the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game and the All-Star Skills Competition. Morris deployed 68 x Clay Paky Mythos, all flown from the ceiling, for those events. “Once again, Mythos’s compact footprint was a factor in the arena,” Geasey says. The arena’s grandMA2 complement consisted of 6 x MA NPU (Network Processing Unit), 2 x grandMA2 full-size and 1 x grandMA2 light; they controlled lighting only for the game and skills competition.

Another grandMA2 light was installed in the All-Star Press Room where it controlled 26 x Clay Paky Sharpy Wash 330. “The press room required a multifunctional design for press activity throughout the weekend,” Geasey notes. “It was used for player interviews and other media interactions so it had to be on-brand for the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend and it had to be properly lit for both photography and television.”

A.C.T Lighting, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighting in the USA and Canada.
