Zee TV's reality show Dance India Dance Little Masters Grand Finale was held on 7th August, 2010 at Balewadi sports complex. This complex, being one of the biggest air conditioned indoor venues with a seating capacity of around 10000 people was perfect for an event of this magnitude during the monsoons.

Considering the popularity of the show and the scale of this event, everything at the event including the venue had to be huge which thus demanded a Heavy Duty Trussing System. SNL Pro having one of the largest inventory of Trussing in India was chosen for the job.

We were involved right from the planning stage with Zee TV, Production House, DOP, Light Supplier and their light designer. To light up such a large stage & a fabulous set a clear height of 37 feet from the ground level was required for the camera to capture the entire SET DESIGN with no visual obstacles.

4 Pillars/Box Truss - 31 x 16 x 12 (meters) | 104 x 52 x 39.36 (feet)
2 Pillars/Goal post - 16 x 12 (meters) | 52x 39.36 (feet)
Section for audience(width) - 50 meters | 164.50 feet

Maharashtra Day: Lata Mangeshkar Live in Concert

Melody queen and Bharat Ratna Ms. Lata Mangeshkar performed Live after a gap of seven long years on May 1st 2010, at a musical extravaganza organized by Shiv Sena to mark the golden jubilee of Maharashtra’s formation (Maharashtra Day).50 years ago on this very day she had for the very first time performed the ‘Maharashtra Abhimaan Geet’ which she replicated as a part of the golden jubilee celebrations, so in a way it was history repeating itself. SNL Pro is both proud and privileged to be associated in providing sound reinforcement for such a historic event.

Besides Lataji, other prominent singers like Shankar Mahadevan, Kunal Ganjawala, Abhijeet Sawant, Usha Mangeshkar, Hridayanath Mangeshkar, Swapnil Bandodkar, Sadhna Sargam, Suresh Wadkar and 5 singers from little champs also took centre stage.

Considering the magnitude of the event we at SNL Pro left no stone unturned in planning and executing the setup which started weeks before the actual event. Our team worked closely with Pramod Chandorkar and Vijay Dayal (FOH engineer & Monitor Mix engineer respectively for Lata Mangeshkar) in planning the stage layout and monitor placements for a musical ensemble of 120 top class musicians which included a 40 piece string section. With such a large number of musicians to cater to, there could be no room left for the smallest error.

The same applied to FOH PA system as the venue which spanned more than 800 meters in length was comfortably covered with 12 line array towers and "fills"  placed at calculated distances for even and optimal coverage, as we did not want any one to be deprived of the "golden voice".

In the end all the efforts put in by our engineers Ramdas Kalaskar + Pramod Vetkar and the SNL crew was worth it as we heard Lataji mesmerize the 1, 25,000 plus crowd with her inimitable melodious singing.
