The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors the legendary performers, producers, songwriters, disc jockeys and other industry notables who have made rock and roll the powerful force that it is in our culture today. The 20th annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony honored The O'Jays, the Pretenders, Percy Sledge, Buddy Guy and U2. The event was held on March 14, 2004, with a VH1 broadcast of the ceremony premiering March 19th.
Audio-Technica’s acclaimed Artist Elite® 5000 Series UHF Wireless System was used during the induction ceremony for frontline vocals by The O’Jays, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Percy Sledge, Bo Diddley, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis and Paul Shaffer. Additionally, a selection of hardwired A-T microphones was also utilized including the AE2500 (bass guitar amps), AE5100 (hi-hat), ATM35 (horns) and AT4050 (overheads and guitar amps).
The technical staff for the induction ceremony read like a Who’s Who of professional audio. Mitch Maketansky was once again the Hall of Fame’s choice as Audio Coordinator, responsible for organizing and assigning all the inputs and microphones for the event. Grammy® Award winner John Harris was Lead Engineer for recording specialists Effanel Music, the remote recording company that both recorded the program and mixed the broadcast, while Jay Vicari was the Mix Engineer.
Commenting on the use of the Audio-Technica microphones for the eighth year in a row, John Harris stated, “When you only have one shot to capture an artist’s performance, there is no room for error, which is why I use Audio-Technica. Their microphones deliver flawless performances show after show. I’ve been using the 5000 Series wireless for the past few years, and they continue to provide clean, consistent high-quality audio as well as being super dependable, hence I have higher confidence level with A-T than other systems. In addition, A-T’s unparalleled level of company support is second to none, which ultimately lets me concentrate on mixing rather than having to worry about the equipment.”
