Keene Pumpkin Festival 2011

Saturday 22 October, 2011

Every year thousands of families from all over New England flock to Keene, NH for the city’s annual Pumpkin Festival. This year Atomic was tasked with blanketing the immense festival grounds with sound and providing power distribution for the multitude of vendors. The challenge of covering a half mile stretch of the city’s downtown and several broad adjacent lots with intelligible audio was met by creative design and substantial preparation. We employed an array of speakers including 70V paging horns, conventional point-source speakers and even a carefully concealed Adamson Spektrix line array. At the end of the day, the City’s emergency services staff was thrilled with the coverage and reliability of the system and the event staff appreciated the hard work of our staff. Production Manager Kurt Steelman shared these kind words:

When I was hired by Let It Shine, Inc in February ’11 as the Festival Production Manager, my first task was to hire a pro audio contractor. After a prompt and thorough site visit with Kevin, he quickly returned with a fresh, practical and affordable solution to the event’s sound needs. The plan called for custom brackets to quickly install the 70 volt speakers in the massive downtown footprint and the addition of a line array to our Central Square structure. The load in, event and strike went more smoothly than I could have anticipated. The Atomic crew was polite, courteous, timely, knowledgeable and adapted quickly to the many issues that arise in this type of event. I was approached for weeks after the event by patrons and volunteers to compliment the “awesome sound”!!!

Thanks Atomic! You guys truly ROCK!

Kurt Steelman, President

Thanks Kurt! We think you and your crew rock too!
