SOUND & LIGHTING

// OFFBEAT ENTERTAINMENT

THE SKINNY VERSION:

My totally kickass sound system sounds incredible and you will feel the music in the pits of your soul. UV uplighters, LED battons and sweeping beams of light will create a stylish party atmosphere that will look amazing in all your #photos.

THE PHAT VERSION:

Great sound is crucial to making people flock to the dance floor and I've thouroughly geeked out in this regard.

Italian audio company RCF have been absolutely slaying it with their pro speakers over the last decade, supplying sound equipment to many of the biggest stages in the world. My primary top cabinets are a pair of RCF ART 910-A active speakers , giving an incredibly clear, natural and balanced sound, coupled with a mighty RCF 705-AS MKII subwoofer, that properly fills out the low end with warm, punchy sub bass you can really feel. This truly impressive 5.6kW system has been chosen specifically to be the optimum sound set-up for a barn, hotel reception room or ball room and will easily provide sound for 200 people. I use these in conjunction with a dbx GoRack DSP ensuring the perfect sound set-up for your specific space. For larger rooms, marquees or outdoor venues I'll likely add a pair of the highly regarded RCF Evox 8 column speakers, and if your venue is particularly huge and I think that you'll need even more sound equipment then I will arrange all that for you. Wherever you hold your party, my sound system will seriously bounce your dance floor.

In addition to all that I also own a portable wireless PA speaker that I can use to get background music into any part of the venue, so if you want your reception drinks at the far end of the garden or by the pool, I can provide background music for that (some venues don't allow amplified music outside so please check first). It's also useful for amplifying speeches outside where there is no mains power, and also for providing music for the ceremony/signing the registrar when space is often limited and positioning is crucial.

It wouldn't be a party without great lighting and my collection of lights will transform your venue into a vibrant, elegant atmosphere that will make you and your guests want to dance all night long. My moving heads (sweeping beams of light) are versatile in terms of positioning, with no trailing wires or messy scaffolds. This allows for a quick set-up even in less than ideally shaped spaces. Used together with modern LED uplighters (colour washes) that project gorgeous UV colours on to the walls and dance floor, I create something that has more in common with a festival tent than a mobile disco. I steer clear of things like scanning lasers, widescreen TVs, 'your name in lights!' type projectors, starlit backdrops, strobe effects, backlit booths with my DJ name or logo on, or anything else that distracts from the intimacy and beauty of the occasion. For me it's about enhancing the existing character of the venue rather than overwhelming your carefully thought out style.

For DJing I use the flagship Pioneer DDJ-REV7, with enormous functionality allowing me to express myself fully when mixing off a Macbook Pro (running Serato DJ Pro) giving me every song and playlist at my fingertips.

All of my equipment is of the absolute highest quality and kept in great condition through regular servicing, renewing and annual PAT inspections. I carry plenty of spares for ensuring there are no technical disasters on the night, and I have PLI (Public Liability Insurance) for up to £10,000,000, a certificate of which can be sent to either yourselves or the venue on request.
