Mary J. Blige brought her Strength of a Woman Festival to Atlanta that included a full line-up of artists at State Farm Arena. Music Matters provided all audio, lighting, and video for the show that included performances and appearances from MJB, Chaka Khan, Method Man, Usher, City Girls, and Ella Mai.

Arena shows offer a unique set of challenges for production including a same day load-in and load-out schedule for the crew. For this show, the lighting rig was also a custom design and different from your standard arena rig.

We were thrilled at the opportunity to celebrate our hometown team and their World Series win in the fall of 2021. The celebration featured performances by Big Boi, Ludacris, and Zac Brown. Our team provided audio, lighting, and special fx for the party at Truist Park.

Audi of Marietta approached the MMP to create a unique and unforgettable live experience to celebrate the launch of their new EV,E-Tron.

Production for this event included an interactive XR activation featuring the E-Tron, projection mapping on the interior & exterior of the building, Crowdsync LED bracelets for guests, audio and site lighting.

From an arena show in prior years to a full Football Stadium Concert, Birthday Bash is an Atlanta event that has grown significantly.

Production for this event included: 106 d&b speakers and subs, 144 light figures, 210′ of pre-rig lighting truss, custom lighting and sound design and an 80′ thrust off the front of the stage into the crowd.

A staple festival in the heart of Atlanta, ONE MusicFest is the southeast’s largest 2-day urban progressive festival attracting over 50,000+ visitors per year.

Our production for the festival included audio, lighting, and video for three stages, site lighting, custom VIP areas, and our SL320 with video bays and video walls built for Stage 2.

Atlanta United kicks off every season with an event to celebrate the team and reveal the new kit(s) for the upcoming soccer season.

We brought out our SL260, lighting, audio, and video to help the Five Stripes throw a killer party. This was a 3-camera shoot and there was a satellite audio and video location for the crew.

The event also included custom gobos, a custom VIP area, a Media/News riser, and custom designed and choreographed reveal moment complete with 11×20 LED wall that opened and closed, sparkulars, lasers, fog, and haze.

The Atlanta Regional Commission is charged with peering into the future and working with partners across the community to plan for a better, brighter tomorrow.

MMP provided audio, video, lighting, and live-streaming for their annual meeting held at the Georgia World Congress Center. The main LED video wall measured 11’x20′ and was constructed with our Absen 2.9mm LED panels.

Early on, Zero Mile Presents and AEG Presents turned to MMP to handle the integration and design of all audio and lighting systems for the Eastern project.

Built from the ground up, the venue boasts a multi-tiered floorplan with unrivaled sightlines, high-end lighting and a full-on L-Acoustics K2 line array rig. Besides serving as a premiere concert facility, The Eastern can double as a special event space for corporate functions, award shows, galas, weddings, receptions, trade shows, private events and more. As an added bonus, the rooftop features a covered performance space, bar, restaurant and open-air seating.

So far, The Eastern has amassed rave reviews from fans and artists alike.  The state of the art sound and dazzling visuals just make a good thing better. But from our viewpoint, what really matters is how the crews have reacted: the general consensus both from touring LD’s and audio engineers is that it’s a really amazing system.

Our new SL320 was put to the test for an 8-week series located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta.  The MMP team provided all of the staffing and gear for all of the performances that came through the main stage. With an average of five events per week, the stage saw everything from dance and music to theatre and orchestral performances.

Gear for the event included the  SL320 with wing and rolling riser package, Meyer Leopard Line Array with MJ210 stage monitors and Midas M32, GrandMA2/ETC Ion consoles, outdoor rated stage wash with Elation Sixpars, Proteus Hybrid moving light fixtures,  and LED Lekos for boom lighting.

 

Constructed in a setting that is normally full of fast cars and Nascar races, the Drive-In at the Speedway Series featured great acts across the musical spectrum such as Mt. Joy, Adventure Club, Umphrey’s McGee, DeadMau5 and more.
Because the series ran over several months, after the stage, video walls, and lighting rigs were constructed, they remained on-site for the duration of the series. Rain or shine, and even a hurricane, our team ran full production for the series and enjoyed the fun atmosphere and excitement of the fans.

After weeks of work on our all-new In the Round Live Stream Performance Space, it was finally time to give the full capabilities of the space a try.

Perpetual Groove and their fans showed up for an awesome night of live music and virtual fan viewing. Accompanied by a fully interactive production, the set featured pristine sound, beautiful lighting, and the 360° video wall piping in custom content and virtual fans.
Matt McDonald of Perpetual Groove had the following to say about the night: “The feeling inside “the halo” as it came to be known is, quite simply, incredible. It’s an inspiring place for creativity and the feeling of being surrounded by all of you was the closest we’ve felt to playing a live show in months.”

A classic Atlanta venue smack dab in the middle of a residential area makes for an interesting annual sound system install at Cadence Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park. When the venue underwent renovations in 2018, we provided a new d&b audotechnik sound system for the amphitheatre.

Because of Chastain’s unique situation, there are very specific sound limits. With the use of the right software and the expertise of our audio team, we are able to control the sound and direct the frequencies as to not be a disturbance to the surrounding neighborhood.

 

This annual show at State Farm Arena features top hip hop artists.

Our team provides full production, including a custom snowflake rig. This was a very unique project. Each piece of the snowflake had to be moved individually and assembled and deconstructed completely on-site the day of the show.

In addition to our work with concerts and events, we partner with many clients who are looking to upgrade their in-house systems.

The Tabernacle is an iconic Atlanta venue that opened as a church in 1911, and converted to a music venue in 1996. With the largest  d&b audiotechnik inventory in Atlanta, our team was able to collaborate with the Tab crew to complete a full audio system upgrade in 2018.

When the Big Game came to Atlanta, corporate parties and concerts were aplenty. One of our favorites of the extended weekend was the Rolling Stone party held at The Goat Farm in Atlanta.

The venue is a vintage barn with very little in the realm of sound, staging, or lighting technology. Our team provided full production for the event that included a custom concert stage, outdoor site lighting, and VIP room customization.

The show featured some Atlanta greats, Ludacris, Young Thug, and Gunna along with DJ QuestLove.
