The Gibbes Museum hosted its third-annual street party on Thursday, April 19…and PDA was there behind-the-scenes to help make it all happen. Fourteen of Charleston’s top chefs, a construction-inspired runway show, and more than 500 movers and shakers celebrated in the middle of Meeting Street.
From the lighting to the runway to the music, our crew worked with the Gibbes to close down the street and bring the party to life!
Our check list of equipment included, two projection screens, projectors, sound system, accent lighting on the building, stage and runway wash for the industrial fashion show (designed by Willi Jones), camera I mag, power distribution, lifts, airstar lighted balloons, DJ set up and the list goes on. Basically we loaded up our warehouse and drove it to Meeting St!
The PDA crew, under Eric Corriher’s direction, made it all happen. The kicker – the event started at 8pm – the street didn’t close till 7pm. We had to set all the street gear up in one hour. Tough under normal circumstances, but add the rain in the mix, and things got a little crazy! In the end, the event was magical and PDA enjoyed working with the Gibbes for the third year in a row.
Here are a few quotes that we received after the event.
Mickey Bakst of Charleston Grill said, “ I don’t know how you guys pulled it off in that amount of time – amazing – PDA has a great team!”
Mike Lata of FIG said, “Very impressive – can’t believe they got it done in time.”
Lasley Steever of Gibbes Museum of Art said, “ We are so impressed with the PDA crew – we love them, and especially Eric!”
