The first award, for “Outstanding Technical Team Remote, MLB on Fox,” was presented in 2012 to Bobby De Luna, the senior account manager at Cat Entertainment Services’ California branch who led the CES team’s technical staff on the project.

Cat Entertainment Services Powers National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

When the switch was flipped to light up the National Christmas tree on The Ellipse near the White House in Washington, D.C. Dec. 4, Cat Entertainment Services was onsite to power up the main show and broadcasts of the ceremony.

 While the tree itself is powered by the National Park Service, two twin pack Cat generators were needed to supply the power for the big event and make sure the rest of the world could see it happen on live TV. A 400 kW twin pack provided power for the lighting, audio, video and TV tech power. A 300 kW twin was used to power the broadcast productions, president’s quarters, talent acts and Google VIP party.

Hosted by Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony featured a speech by President Barack Obama and performances by Fifth Harmony, Patti LaBelle, NE-YO, The Tenors and other artists of note.

More than 95,000 people-a-day attended “Coachella,” headlining acts like Blur, Phoenix and Red Hot Chili Peppers, to name a few.

The following weekend, CES supplied the power for “Stagecoach 2013” and some 650 RVs parked at the three-day, country-music jamboree, also held in sun-scorched Coachella Valley.  There, a crowd of 45,000 fans rollicked to the likes of the Zac Brown Band, Charlie Pride, Dwight Yoakam, Lady Antebellum, Toby Keith and Charlie Daniels while remaining blissfully unaware of the flawless, behind-the-scenes performance of our CES techs.

Little do festival-goers know how much their enjoyment depends on our hard-working CES technicians! Thanks to the expertise and dedication of project manager Marcus Brown and his on-site crew of techs, the events in Coachella Valley draw some of the biggest, most satisfied crowds of all.
