Fans enjoyed a somewhat impromptu performance with one impressive view.
Even if you don't like Jimmy Buffett, there's something wonderful about watching anything on a 33 foot truck-mounted LED screen. It's one of those things you just don't get to do every day.
BSUN Media Systems was the group in charge of setting up the simulcast for Jimmy Buffett's recent charity concert, and they called on the GoVision mobile LED screen known as GoBigger. "We put the screen on a barge - no small feat - and had a tugboat pull the giant truck-mounted screen on the barge up to the dock," explains BSUN owner Brad Sundberg.
Normally, setup for a concert starts bright and early in the morning. When it's something of this magnitude crews might start prepping on the day before. This was a bit different though, since the concert was originally called off due to tropical storm Alex. "Around 10 a.m. on June 30 I was informed that Buffett would indeed be performing," says Sundberg.
2,500 people attended the resulting concert, though the screen was visible from up to a quarter of a mile away.
