THE ATH’S BIG AUDIO REVEAL

Athanaeum Theatre

www.athenaeumtheatre.com.au

The Athanaeum really is the ‘little theatre that could’. With an 800 capacity spread across three levels, it’s got that superb ‘close to the action’ atmosphere. Around four years ago it scored a post-GFC government stimulus grant to replace its seating and staging (hoists and pulleys), but that doesn’t detract from the Ath’s exciting old-school charm — unlike the bigger theatres, as soon as you walk in for a show you’re expecting something unexpected; something out of the ordinary.

JBN BRINGS THE MUSIC BACK TO TREASURY CASINO

LiveWire1_sm LiveWire2_sm

LiveWire Bar

Treasury Casino and Hotel, Queen St Mall, Brisbane
(07) 3306 8888 or treasurybrisbane.com.au

LiveWire Bar is back, with the help of Jbn Sound Ceiling.

The bar, in the heart of the Treasury Casino, has been an integral part of the entertainment offered there for many years. It was seen as a great destination to enjoy a drink and listen to a band any night of the week.

However, having live bands performing in the middle of the Casino can create problems such as loud music blasting through into the main gaming areas, disturbing punters at electronic gaming machines and gaming tables. Bass sound could also travel up into the Casino’s hotel rooms disrupting guests sleeping, hence noise complaints.

So management decided to replace the LiveWire bar band area with a new gaming area. The effect was the loss of some patrons. The solution was to bring the LiveWire bar back and actively seek ways to limit the noise issues associated with live bands and music blasting through the gaming areas and the exclusive accommodation above.
