This year Southern Sound and Lighting ordered a custom roof skin for Gulf Coast Jam. This addition made the branding and overall look of the stage pop and allowed for a vibrant signage that cannot be achieved with blow through banners.

Gulf Coast Jam now offers Jammers 2 unique VIP experiences; the VIP Stages and VIP Sky Boxes. The VIP Stages is a 2 level experience that allows you to see on stage, behind stage and side stage. These perspectives give a unique view of the performers and allow guests to capture memorable pictures from the event.

The VIP Sky Boxes were new additions to GCJ this year. There were 10 Sky Boxes per side with a artist walkway that allowed them to interact and walk down the entire length of the Sky Box.

Southern Sound and Lighting provided the Main Stage, 60×48 with custom sized monitor worlds, a 48 foot cat walk, and covered loading dock areas. Gulf Coast Jam also had 3 video walls and rear delays.

One Spark 2014 – Jacksonville Florida

Southern Sound and Lighting was a proud partner of CenterStage Events  in conjunction with First Coast Audio Visual for One Spark 2014!

If you are not familiar with the One Spark Festival, it is the largest crowd funding festival in the world….and it started here in Jacksonville Florida!  Basically, hundreds of creators in art, science, technology, music and innovation flood the streets of downtown Jacksonville for a week.  They set up booth spaces in the streets, buildings and parks and promote and pitch their ideas to a crowd of 300,000+.  By downloading an app, the public has the ability to vote for their favorite ideas or creations.  They can also donate money to their individual cause to help fund their idea.  Each creator has a specific idea or plan as to what they want to do with the money.

Southern Sound and Lighting handled all of the production for One Spark; the Main Stage, Pitch Decks, One Spark After Dark, Beer Garden, Speaker Series and Corporate parties.  It was a great event and we were extremely honored to be part of this amazing event.  We are looking forward to next year!
