Karaoke Hire Surrey

3rd October 2011

We delivered a simple DIY hire karaoke system to the Hilton Cobham for a corporate event been held in the restaurant. I met Jane (the hirer) at the Hilton Cobham in the Mediterranean Restaurant  and after some deliberating and Q & A we established the best place to site the Karaoke system.
The Hotel were providing the mixer and speakers with Radio microphones . So all we had to do was provide the karaoke player, songs LCD TV screen and stand. It always seems to be the case that when you are doing set ups with a small amount of equipment the job takes longer. Suppose you take your time as you know there is not much gear and if you are using someone elses PA  - it can often mean that you are waiting around for them to finish their set up before you can start doing sound checks etc.
The event went very well and the Karaoke system worked fine according to Jane who I met the next morning when collecting the gear

DJ Equipment Hire London

7th October 2011

We hired out DJ equipment to the Law Society who were having a party on the "Viscountess" which was departing from Lambeth Pier London on Friday night.
Parking always a nightmare here (two prior parking contraventions ) but as twas past 6.30 the problems were lessened. The rig hired was composed of 2 x Pioneer CDJ 1000's . 1 x Pioneer DJM 800 . 2 x EV SX 300 speakers powered by a C.Audio amplifier and a DB Technologies sub bass unit. A couple of lights were used a small cluster lase and a Acme Matrix LED effect. Two Law Society students kindly helped us lift the equipment onto the boat.
At midnight I arrive at Westminster Pier to exact the pick up. Great start! I got on the wrong boat (there were 2 boats simultaneously docking and off boarding their passengers. After realising my mistake I boarded the correct boat. Lots of young good looking slaw students in their dinner suits and gowns merry making as they started their trudge to the Embankment road. Meanwhile some of us have to wotrk! Dismantled the sound equipment so that it was ready to be taken off the boat . I drove back to Lambeth Pier where the boat met up with me . From here I took all the gear to my van, the gangplank was horizontal as the tide had come in which made my job  alot easier. The event had run smoothly and the hired sound equipment had lived up to its task

Karaoke with Compere

28th September 2011

We hired out a Karaoke system to the company Unilever in Kingston Surrey this Wednesday. They required a compere/DJ to operate the equipment and help to run the corporate event.
The Karaoke evening was held at their offices in Kingston Surrey. The compere "Andy Dolphin" arrived in  plenty of time to set up. Used  a karaoke player, 5000 songs. LCD TV, Mixing desk, Audio Technica 'Midnight Blue' microphone, Mackie SRM 450 speakers. All stands and leads of course. The evening started with a music quiz with Andy operating and an employee of the company doing the questions. Once this had finished - straight inti Karaoke. All present had a wonderful time thanks to Andy's personality and the high quality sound equipment that we used on the night

Lighting Hire Surrey

October 1st 2011; We delivered some lighting effects to the Surrey Downs Golf Club in Kingswood Surrey for a wedding event. They did not require too much but a job is a job!
We used 4 floor LED  par can up lighters . They were set on a colour fade synchronised to all do the same effect at the same time - placed on the wall immediately beiond the band (That they had to entertain them). We also supplied a a set of parcans with a light controller mounted on a tripod. The parcans had coloured filters and were set to a random program. These were placed to the side of the band and have the flexibility of been able to move  round to project into the dancing area if prefeered.
A small lighting hire job but well worth the effort
