This weekend one of our companies – Resource Group AV inc, was providing Audio, Lighting and some Video production for the Budweiser BudBowl 2009 event at Channelside in Tampa FL as part of the Superbowl weekend.
Talk about “mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid day sun”. During the set up and build during the first couple of days, it was blazing, scorching, hot!
When I got home at night my wife commented to me that I looked as if I had been at the tanning beds all day. I was sunburnt all over my face and arms. Thank goodness the next few days were cooler although we could have done without all the rain overnight and in the evening.
There were two special bands playing over the weekend, on Thursday there was Snoop Dogg and on Friday there was 3 Doors Down
On Thursday night I was one of the emcee’s for the event and had great fun with the crowds of Steeler and Cardinals fans who were at the event. The crowd was fantastic, enthusiastic and energetic enjoying two great concerts. Over 10,000 people a night filled the area and enjoyed a great night, thanks to Budweiser and BudLight.
