Check out our team in Toronto all ready for the Rogers Hometown Hockey tour!
The travelling hockey festival will feature our Stageline SL100 – with certified tech Martin Jordanov and Meyer audio support for the entire tour … and for fans there’s also entertainment, hockey and live music along the way!
The Stageline SL100 Mix is an incredibly versatile stage with a wide variety of setup options from band shell to full size stage. Its innovative, lightweight construction enables it to be towed with a standard pickup truck, maximizing access options and reducing transportation costs.
It features extensive opportunities for customized event branding and banners, and is ideal for festivals of all sizes, with the ability to be setup as either a main stage or weather protected Front of House mixing position at larger events. The SL100 mobile stage is already one of our most popular staging options this summer!
Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh! (Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone!) from all of us at avstrategies!
To mark the occasion our Toronto guys transformed their loading dock into a poster board with Irish imagery using outdoor projection. Including a 10th Century Irish Round Tower which was projected on a large smokestack, and an Irish Castle dating back to to the mid 1800’s, they finished the scene off with a cheeky Guinness on the side and some Green LED lighting on the remaining stubborn snow!

We have just wrapped up our support of the David Suzuki Foundation’s cross-country Blue Dot Tour. The tour covered 34 Canadian locations from St. John’s, NF to Victoria, BC and all points in between. The final show in Vancouver included appearances by Neil Young, Feist, Chantal Kreviazuk, Barenaked Ladies, Hey Ocean, Margaret Atwood, and Raine Maida.
avs crew chief, Martin Jordanov travelled with the Suzuki Foundation in their tour bus, receiving support from our local branch offices in Toronto, Calgary, Prince George, and Vancouver also. We provided full audio, video and lighting support along with venue technical integration.
It was great to part of such a positive undertaking. David Suzuki summed up his inspiration for the tour in the following way:
“I have lived an entire life, and if there is one unwavering truth I have learned it is that things change. Rights change. Our concept of who we are and what we hold our highest values to be change. But they don’t change on their own. It takes a million different people committed to a single, beautiful ideal, over a long period of time to make real change happen. This is what you are a part of now, and what the Blue Dot Tour has always been about…”
