Jazziz Bistro in Hollywood, Fla., opened in December 2004, combines jazz and gourmet food, marrying the talents of Lori and Michael Fagien of Jazziz Omnimedia, construction expert Gerard Klauder and Burt Rapoport of Classic Cuisine Concepts. The top-tier dining and live music environment opted to bring in Audio-Technica microphones for live music needs.
The current A-T mic complement at work in the Jazziz Bistro features many of the groundbreaking Artist Elite Series mics—AE6100, AE5100 and AE2500—along with the AT4060, AT4050, AT4033, ATM35a, ATM25, ATM29HE and AT815ST. Jazziz Bistro plans to further enhance its sound system with additional A-T mics, including the Artist Elite 5000 Series Wireless System.
Jim Gabour, A/V consultant for the project, explained, “The Jazziz Bistro & Live Music venue is designed for state-of-the-art studio-quality sound-capturing and reproduction. We wanted to both satisfy the absolute world-class musicians the Jazziz Bistro will have performing and to excite the same level of jazzophile listening in the club.”
Working with installation and sound designer Mike Montero (New Orleans-based Fast Take Mobile Recording, M. R. Montero Electronics) explains their selection of Audio-Technica mics: “My truck is outfitted with A-T microphones, and I’ve used them with great success in plenty of settings. We needed mics with versatility and straightforward operation for the Jazziz Bistro project, so I knew A-T fit the bill.”
