Autograph at UKC Hero Awards
Wednesday, 30 January 2002
Autograph Sound Recording began the year on a charitable note, designing and supplying the sound system, free of charge, for the UKC Hero Awards ceremony, held at the Dorchester Hotel, London, on 9 January.

Sir Elton John was the recipient of the UKC (UK Coalition of People Living with HIV and AIDS) Hero Award, held in celebration of World AIDS Day, in recognition of his outstanding contribution towards the continuing fight against the disease. Autograph's Lee Dennison installed Meyer Sound loudspeakers in the Dorchester's Ball Room, using MSL-2s together with USW-1P subs.

Meanwhile, the Olivier-award winning 'Five Guys Named Moe', which entertained West End audiences for many years, is about to hit the road with a complete Autograph sound and communications touring system. The show will be visiting over 20 venues around the UK and will have less than 48 hours to de-rig in one theatre and re-build in the next.

With this in mind Autograph's Nick Lidster, sound designer, has worked hard to create a compact and user-friendly system based around Meyer’s MSL-2 system. The tour is also utilizing Autograph's newly designed touring amplifier rack, which is a double 22U shock-mounted case, which can easily withstand the 20 venue changes.
