DJ & Mobile Disco with Dance floor Surrey

18th Dec 2011

We provided a mobile Disco and a dance floor at the Manor House Conference Centre in Godalming Surrey for a corporate event held by the company 'Dentons Pension Management Ltd'
We arrived (myself Jon Blackman & assistant Jo Chipolata) in the afternoon to set up the sound equipment and dance floor. The Dance floor was a 5 meters x 5 metres polished parquet floor with aluminium surround trimming - only took us 30 mins to assemble and lay. Then we set up the disco equipment using a Denon Mixer with a Denon Twin CD player built into a consul , C. Audio Amplifier and 2 x Electrovoice SX 300 speakers on stands .
The lights we used were some Martin intelligent lighting effects and a Varyon cluster laser used as a backdrop.
The DJ Julian English had an undemanding evening. The clients had had a big Xmas dinner and were reluctant to invite on some unnecessary indigestion which might have been the probable outcome of a prolonged spurt of energetic dancing!
All the customers were more than pleased with the evening however.

Karaoke Hire Staging hire London

15th December 2011
A big event held at the 'Grace bar' in Soho London for Turner Broadcasting
A nightmare to deliver - Great Windmill Strret with parking restruictions (i.e. none!)
Fortunately there were three of us Andy Spirit, my son Alfie and me (Jon Blackman). Alfie was on 'Traffic Warden watch' and Andy and I set up the Karaoke system and staging. We used a karaoke player, Dyancord mixer, 4 SM58 microphones and a Flat TV screen with stand plus 2 x EV SX 300 speakers. We hooked the video signal into the 42" Plasma Screen that had been supplied for our use only. We used 2 x 1 meter square carpeted modular stage pieces to create a small staging area for the singers.
Hectic night not helped by the fact we were crammed into a tiny area and subsequently experienced problems with some of the sound levels partly because there was a very large crowd who wanted it louder and as the speakers were so close together due to the limited set-up area there were consequent  feedback issues from the microphones when the volume levels were increased.
We got out of there alive minus one SM58 microphone which we will endeavour to retrieve. Typical London office party - a lot of very drunk over excitable patrons but nonetheless it all went well on the night

Disco Equipment and Dance Floor Hire London

14th Dec 2011
We set up a dance floor for the UCL Cancer Institute in London WC1.
They had a loading bay off Cheney Mews which was very handy plus a member of staff helped us trolley the dance floor through a long corridor to the canteen where their party was taking place. It was a 4 meter x 5 meter parquet floor with the mandatory aluminium trim. Whilst I set up the dance floor my colleague Andy ET brought in the DJ equipment that was also hired. Using 2 x Mackie SRM 450 speakers on stands with a Pioneer DJM mixer (which they ran their iPod through) plus a couple of LED lighting effects.The clients  were over the moon with the smart looking dance floor and the sound quality of the DJ equipment

Karaoke Hire London

1st December 2011

The Red Room in Ealing opposite Ealing Broadway station was the venue where we were delivering a Digital Karaoke system to.It was a corporate event held by a company based in the Ealing area. A charming Asian gut called Jonathan Chan was the hirer.
We had to take the equipment down a flight of stairs to a large reddish room. The room already had a DJ booth and lights so we did not bring any intelligent  light effects down with us. We used the following equipment: Media Hard Drive with an amazing 11000 songs, Dynacord 9 channel mixing Desk, 2 x Electrovoive speakers, 3 Senhieser microphones , 15" flat TV with its own stand. All fitted into a convenient area opposite the DJ Booth..
The karaoke night finished earlier than expected and the party went into Disco-mode. Andy Dolphin picked up the karaoke equipment and Jonathan emailed me in the morning to tell me that everything had run very smoothly

Dj equipment Hire London

Dec 3rd 2011

The Ship in Kennington South London were holding  a party where they had employed a couple of 'Vinyl Dj's'.
They required some DJ equipment that had to be delivered to the venue that afternoon.
An awkward start as the hirer had not ticked the 'Technics 1210' box on our booking form and therefore they had not been  not loaded onto the van. The landlady aka 'The Hirer' realised the mistake and rang us when we were already on our way! Well we got there and proceeded to set up the sound equipment regardless. We used a Pioneer DJM 600 mixer, 2 x EV SX 300 speakers and a 400 watt sub bass box. Fortunately there was a very convenient stage area for us to set up on.
Back to the Technics problem , it looked like it was resolved when someone produced some inferior Numark decks to use instead of the Technics decks (although they are reasonable turntables they maybe not be for 'Prima Donna ' DJ's! which is something I mentioned verbatim to the landlady) And sure enough when the DJs arrived , I received a phone call to ask whether they could still have the Technics decks. Of course you can! and they sent a taxi out to pick them up
