Jimmy Barnes

Jimmy Barnes at Moke Lake

We’re no strangers to working with International artists, although it’s not every day we convert a sheering shed into a rock arena.

For the final night of this conference and incentive trip our client wanted to give their delegates a surprise finale, so they called on Australian rock legend Jimmy Barnes to be the star firepower to close the trip.

The guests began in a festival style grass paddock, enjoying an acoustic performance, food stands and activities. They were then invited up to the sheering shed which we’d fitted out with a stage, lighting, audio and video as per the production rider to enable Jimmy Barnes to perform the same quality and energy show you’d expect to see on one of his tours.

The installation included a d&b audio technik Q array system, overhead lighting, rolling risers and an upstage LED wall. As the shed wasn’t designed for concerts we had to be clever about the use and placement of the fixtures in the roof as to not exceed the weight limits.

To ensure a clean audio we also draped the walls to help ‘deaden’ the slap backs which muddy the sound in the space.
