A Sound Solution At ASB Classic 2016

I’ve just spent the last two weeks checking out some of the best men and women from around the world battle it out on Centre Court at the ASB Tennis Arena for the ASB Classic in Auckland. Ridler DJ worked in partnership wth Smart Moves Group to provide the music in front of thousands of spectators over the first two weeks of January 2016.

 
Stuart Dwight from Smart Moves Group and myself worked with a team of people involved in the ASB Classic to provide not just the music but also stage direction for all that was going on on Centre Court. These people included the ASB Classic organisation and management team, Flightscope and Monstavision who provided the big screens and rolled out commercials and graphics and the Magness Sound team who provided the speakers and sound equipment.

 
Our role was to ensure everything worked seamlessly between all parties as well as the on court MC and also SKY TV. A big part of the role was to provide the music between games on centre court but to also ensure the big screen activity was delivered at the right moment and that the sponsors received there allocated screen time. We also executed sponsor activations on court between matches with our MC and sponsors and also ensured our on court MC delivered the right messages at the right time and ensured the crowd were gearing up for an exciting day/night of tennis.

 
All this behind the scenes activity ensures that the ASB Classic event experience for all those attending from NZ and around the world is a professional, exciting and informative experience. It also means that with Ridler DJ and Smart Moves Group overseeing all the little elements for the sponsors, organisers and broadcasters, we can make sure everything that has been promised is delivered as per their requirements.

Fast 5 Netball – Gangnam Style

What an event that was! The Fast 5 Netball World Series came to New Zealand and showed us a new version of one of the Country’s favourite games and entertaining is what it was!
 

The Fast 5 Netball World Series is a high-speed, high-octane variant on the traditional game played by the world’s top six netballing nations—New Zealand (the Fast 5 Ferns), Australia, England, Jamaica, South Africa and Malawi. Since its original launch as FastNet in 2009, it has proven a hit with players and spectators, including an international TV audience. The evolution of the game to Fast5 provided fans with an even greater spectacle.
 

The Ridler Mobile DJ provided the music for this event, held at Vector Arena, playing songs that got the crowd pumped, the players excited and the Fast 5 Ferns doing ‘Gangnam Style’!
 

If you missed the NZ girls performing ‘Gangnam Style’ as they came out on to the court for the final game then check out the video below!
