BUENA PARK, Calif. (January 26, 2017)—A crowd of 250,000 gathered for the Women’s March in Chicago on January 21, the day after the Presidential Inauguration, making it one of the largest protests in the city’s history. The event, held to show solidarity among women and on behalf of many groups, grew so large that supporters flooded into the streets. It was the third-largest Women’s March held across seven continents and in hundreds of cities.
Sound Works Productions (Mokena, IL) was called upon to provide audio, delay audio, IMAG video, assistive listening systems, and power, to support the various speakers and artists gathering in the city’s Grant Park. For the main stage, the company chose 14 NEXO GEO S1210 line array speakers with two NEXO GEO S1230s, all powered by four NX4x4 Amps.
“We received the call to provide production for the Women’s March in Chicago about three weeks before the event, states Daniel Nickleski, COO, Sound Works Productions. The biggest challenge we had to overcome with this event was getting the whole production from the truck to ‘show-ready’ in three hours due to expected street closures. With a lot of logistical planning and the assistance from our NEXO S GEO12 system that comes pre-rigged in cases of four, we were able to make it happen. At the end of the day, it was an extremely successful event!”
