The Glee Club initially approached Adlib's Glasgow office looking for a staging solution for their comedy, cabaret, and live music venue in Glasgow. After the first meeting, the scope of the project was broadened to include sound, lighting, and video systems.
Adlib were chosen for the project based on their previous installation experience, and ability to provide all aspects of sound, lighting, video and mechanical engineering rather than The Glee Club having to co-ordinate multiple suppliers.
Adlib was able to draw on past experience installing full production systems in live music and event venues to design, supply, and install a complete sound, lighting, video and staging system with the final package even including bespoke signage supplied by Adlib's in-house manufacturing department.
Adlib responded flexibly and efficiently to handle changes in venue design during the project with the close proximity of the venue to Adlib's Glasgow office allowing for regular site visits and constant communication. Challenges like "how to hide equipment behind the curtains" was handled with simple solutions enabled by Adlib's in-house manufacturing team.
The audio installation comprised an L-Acoustics ARCS WiFo Front of House system with L-Acoustics X8 fills and delays. In addition, 4 x Adlib AA81i were installed for additional fills and bar areas. 6 x Adlib AA1214w wedges were supplied for monitoring with the audio system controlled from a Midas M32 Digital Mixing Console Package with Sennheiser ew100 wireless microphones.
The lighting installation comprised 2 Clay Paky Axcor Spot 300, 2 x Clay Paky Axcor Wash 300, 8 x Chauvet Core Par 80, 8 x Chauvet Ovation H-605FC, and 6 x Chauvet COLORado 2 Quad Zoom all controlled from a Chamsys MagicQ MQ40N console.
The main projection system comprised a single Panasonic PT-RZ760 projector supplied ex-rental from Adlib's own hire department. A TV ONE CHORIO Master system was installed to control the unique aspect ratio for the upstage screen.
Adlib also supplied the staging system, drapes, and track alongside audio and video systems in the foyer and bar areas.
Adlib's excellent relationships with manufacturers allow them to offer competitive prices ensuring The Glee Club could maximise their budget. Adlib's installation team were able to bring the client's vision to life.
