DJ equipment Hire & Wireless Microphone Hire London

28th January 2012

A Chinese entrepreneur called Si Li (Silly) booked our company to provide a DJ based sound system with Radio microphones for a Charity Fashion show been held at the lovely Harbour Club Notting Hill West London
Our telephone conversations preceding the event were more like a haggling war in a street market " wot yor bes price" was the only words tthat I seemed to hear. Anyway we worked out a deal that seemed to suit both parties.
Arrived eventually (the Sat Nav did not seem to recognize Alfred Street (the address of te harbour club ) and waned to take us onto the Flyover . We consulted my dilapidated A-Z book and got there )
I had taken my 12 yr old son Arthy with me ( the prospect of seeing lots of beautiful models was a carrot that he found difficult to resist). We unloaded the van and took all the sound equipment and lighting effects into the lift at the club. It was on the 1st floor that the fashon show was taking place.
We used the following equipment at the event 2 x EV SX300 speakers- 1 x 400 watt DB sub bass unit, Dynacord Powermate 600 desk mixer, 3 x radio microphones , 2 x Numark NDX400 CD players (the German DJ was a joke and commmented that the CD players were rubbish and that he did not know how to work with them, this was made funnier as  earlier he had commented that he was a DJ and could work with anything put in front of him. There are a lot of DJs like this. To be fair Si Li (Silly) had not wanted to pay the extra cost involved for the superior Pioneer CDJ 1000 Mk 3 CD players which most DJs prefer) Lastly we provided two LED lighting effects.
There were then the inevitable sound checks for the singers, a few dead batteries been exchanged for new ones on the wireless  microphones . On leaving the sound was good and the lights looked terrific. All good except for a highly strung DJ and Si-Li (Silly) who wanted to part pay then and part pay later. Had to remind him of our terms & conditions where all monies are paid on satisfactory completion of installation. Sigh
