Over Memorial Day Weekend, we were proud to sponsor a "float" in Atlanta's Caribbean Carnival Parade. The Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association (ACCBA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote a broader understanding and deeper appreciation for Caribbean culture by seeking the interest of Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Groups and using the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival as a vehicle for the promotion of Caribbean Culture among the broader Metro Atlanta Community.
Our customer Peter Kahn designed the float for the parade, complete with Yorkville & ElectroVoice loudspeakers and subs. Products included the Yorkville EF15P 15" loudspeaker & 21" Powered Subwoofer Elite, and the ElectroVoice 15" Three-Way Loudspeakers. This rig packed some serious power!
If the staggering size of the float and the power of the loudspeakers aren't enough, let's take a peek under the hood and look at some of the media mixers and control processors. The QSC TouchMix-16, DBX 260 Loudspeaker Management System, Denon 300BR Receiver, and Furman 15 amp Power Conditioner in the Elite Core 6 Space Amp Rack, and the Pioneer DJ Controller all manage the massive float.
The tricked-out floats aren't the only festive part of the parade. Festival goers are decked out in brightly colored costumes, most of them handmade.
We were excited to be a part of this parade and to see the rich culture in the music and costumes. For more information about the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival you can visit their website.
