Prom season is officially upon us here at Gathering Storm Media. Friday May 1st we kicked off the season with a bang. Tonight we our new 14,000+ watt line array system made its debut. The sound did not disappoint, nor did the lights for that matter. Check out a few pics from the setup up.
GSM was on hand to record the IPSD honors recital at Wentz Hall in beautiful downtown Naperville. The concert featured the area's top high school band, choir and orchestra ensembles. This was also GSMs first time working with the staff at Wentz Hall. We look forward to carrying on this partnership.
Gathering Storm Media had the opportunity to partner with NCTV to produce a broadcast of the Naperville Municipal Band. The concert was a joint performance between the community Naperville Municipal Band and a group of talented students from Waubonsie Valley High School's Wind Ensemble. GSM has partnered with Waubonsie Valley this year to ensure that their students have high quality recordings to serve archival and educational purposes. By listening to their performance recordings, students are able to critique their performance and grow as musicians. What makes GSM the ideal company for this purpose is out quick turn around time. The concert was held on Sunday afternoon and will be in the high school directors hands by 1st period Monday morning. We know students are able to learn best when they…
GSM is truly a full service school dance DJ service. To help Waubonsie Valley promote their upcoming SnoComing Turnabout dance, we produced this 50sec trailer that will air on their internal TVs and weekly student TV news show. GSM is also providing high quality digital posters for use by the school leading up to their event.
Today Gathering Storm Media had the opportunity to DJ the first annual Warrior Dance Invite. Over 20 high school teams came together to perform 74 unique poms/dance numbers. GSM helped keep everything in order and ensure that the dancers and fans alike could hear the music that accompanied these talented students. After the competition ended, DJ Glar3 started an impromptu dance party. I don't know what was more fun, the official contest or partying with well over 500 dancers. The next time your school is looking to host a poms/dance competition, make sure to call your friends at Gathering Storm Media.
Gathering Storm Media has been busy at work this Christmas. On December 5th & 6th we were on hand for the annual Prism concert at Waubonsie Valley. Prism has become a holiday tradition for this high school community. Each year over 30 musical groups, ensembles, bands, orchestras and choirs select holiday and winter favorites to perform. This year GSM helped in two ways. Friday night we partnered with WVTV to provide a live stream of the show which was seen on over 2,500 web connected devices. Then on Saturday, both shows were recorded for use in a live 2 CD set. The next time your school or musical group needs a live recording, be sure to think of Gathering Storm Media.
This past weekend Gathering Storm Media got into the Halloween mood with our new Best Buddies from Metea, Neuqua, Waubonsie, and Bolingbrook High Schools. Best Buddies is a student organization for special needs students and their peer partners. Every year the schools host a halloween themed dance for these students. This year GSM and DJ Glar3 served as the DJs and MCs. Students danced the night away, competed in a costume contest and a mummy wrap competition. GSM was happy to provide a quality experience for these students, making sure to adjust sound and lighting so as not to overwhelm the special needs students. Here at Gathering Storm Media we make every event individualized and catered to your specifications.
Friday May 9th, Gathering Storm Media provided DJ services to Waubonsie Valley. This year was a new attendance record for WVHS and administration commented that they've never had so many students stay until the last song. GSM strives to play the music students want to hear, without playing the language administrators fear. Our mix of radio friendly hits and club remixes are sure to keep students on the dance floor all night.
