Nashville’s Dream Hotel Chooses Bose Professional Sound Systems & Technomedia for a Stellar Sonic Identity
EVAmore, a Nashville-based booking firm, chose the Dream Hotel for the launch event of its new-generation online booking platform
Nashville’s experiential upscale Dream Hotel – the flagship of the chain – worked with Technomedia, a division of Mood Media, the world’s leading in-store media solutions company dedicated to elevating the Customer Experience, and Bose Professional to develop a stunning sonic identity for the destination facility. The hotel evidences its reliance on Bose Professional products by their pervasive presence throughout the facility, including 11 dining and entertainment venues as well as common spaces. A wide variety of Bose Professional products have been employed, including RoomMatch, ShowMatch, FreeSpace DS-series and Panaray speakers, as well as ControlSpace processors and PowerMatch amplifiers. Technomedia, an award-winning advanced A/V systems integrator that creates the most original, immersive and memorable media experiences in the world, was responsible for initially bringing in Bose Professional on the project and handled all necessary installations across Dream Hotel’s venues.
Far from being a cookie-cutter chain hotel clone, Dream Hotel Nashville occupies a historic building backing up to the city’s storied Printer’s Alley night life and entertainment district. The Dirty Little Secret night club, the hotel’s premier venue, is an intriguing music and entertainment theater that has become a destination for private events as well as regular live performances with surprise acts and a rotation of emerging musicians and DJ performers. The venue is entered from Printer’s Alley, where guests and revelers are provided a striking visual experience; Bose Professional gear was deployed to provide equally compelling audio.
Recently, the innovative entertainment booking firm EVAmore launched the latest evolution of its online booking platform in a gala event at Dirty Little Secret, chosen in no small measure as Bose Professional has become the recommended sound choice of EVAmore. “We promote Bose Professional Sound as the go-to in the corporate and private events industry for anyone who doesn't want to think twice or worry about how the production side of things will go during their event,” says EVAmore co-founder Channing Moreland. EVAmore and its artists have been using Bose Professional products for quite some time now and have been extremely happy with the results. “Our artists first tried out the F1 and Sub speaker sound system and the L1 system,” Moreland recalls. “Both are amazing setups for our always-on-the-go artists and extremely easy to use. So when it came time to choose a venue for our launch event, because of the décor and the Bose PA system, the Dream Hotel’s Dirty Little Secret nightclub was an easy decision. We now use the Bose Professional gear setups at corporate and private events whenever we can. We believe it's a great, mutually beneficial partnership because music and amplification go hand-in-hand.”
EVAmore (www.evamore.co) represents a prototypical American success story. The company was founded by two then-college students (Moreland and Makenzie Stokel) who shared a love of live music and had experienced first-hand the frustrations of negotiating the messy details of talent booking. Deciding there needed to be a better way, they formed a company and began developing what’s evolved into a mature and user-friendly online experience that makes it easy for event hosts to find and book musical talent. “EVAmore is an online platform that automates booking entertainment by connecting talent with premium events,” Moreland elaborates. “The platform provides instant discovery of vetted entertainment, access to prequalified events, and quick and secure payments/contracts for all parties involved.”
“When you have great entertainment paired with great sound production,” Moreland concludes, “your event becomes invincible.”
