It is our aim to offer a top quality service at all times and an important
part of this comes from the professional quality equipment we use for your
event. We have invested significantly in ensuring that our sound, playback
and lighting is of the highest order, all supplied by leading manufactures
in their field, such as Electrovoice, Denon, Martin, Abstract, Prolight,
Advanced Event Designs, Litec, Optikinetics and MobilTech. For the more technically
minded, the following gives a few details on the type of equipment we
might use for your event. Rest assured, however, that there is no need for
you to have any technical knowledge at all, as we will always supply what
is most suitable for your specific event having consulted with you to
discover your wishes.
tailor our sound system to your chosen venue. For a house-party or small
hall, we will normally use a 2.1 powered system with small satellite
speakers powered by a compact sub-woofer, ensuring high quality full range
sound. These will comfortably cope with audiences of up to 80 or 100
people. For a larger hall, we would normally use high power 12” active
tops matched to a single subwoofer, which reinforces the bass signal and
gives more presence to the sound. For larger venues still or for marquees,
we can add a further subwoofer, and in exceptional situations a further
pair of 12” or 15” active speakers to further boost the sound output.
Although our speakers will cope with very loud volumes if required, we
generally prefer to ensure that sound is kept at a comfortable level,
whilst all the time remaining crystal clear. Our current speaker systems
are supplied by some of the world’s leading PA manufacturers, who provide
concert sound for many of the globe’s top acts.
To playback music we can use either CDs or digital files – our systems are
able to read files from computer or external hard drives, USB sticks or
iPods in all the major formats. A major benefit of this is the
ability to prepare a playlist in advance on a specific theme,
incorporating your requests (see Your Party page). Another is the ability
to almost instantly search through in excess of 50,000 files to find that
particular track that perfectly meets the mood of the audience, whilst
keeping the party in top gear.
We will consult with you in advance to
confirm what will suit your particular event – whether you are looking for
the appearance of a sophisticated jazz lounge with minimal discreet
effects, a full-on nightclub experience, or, as is most popular, somewhere
in between. We have a collection of more than forty lighting effects, far
in excess of what could possibly be needed for even the largest of events.
Why the need for this apparent overkill? Simply we have lighting to suit
every possible occasion, to create the perfect mood that you are looking
We offer a wide range of different styles of lighting, from moving heads
for a concert type effect, scanners and barrels that move synchronised
light beams and gobos across the dance floor, moonflowers for graceful or
frantic rotating patterns, a high output kaleidoscope fixture, to new low
energy LED style effects and par cans for single but changeable colour
beams. All of the lighting can be set to automatically operate in time
with the music, or pre-programmed with patterns or adjusted on the fly
using a state of the art software controlled virtual lighting desk.
In addition, we can also offer a laser
show of moving fans, tubes and tunnels in multiple colours or smaller
cluster style lasers for a more subtle but equally memorable effect.
We can also offer full room uplighting to completely transform the look of
your venue before, during and after our set (see
Mood and Event Lighting
We also offer the option of haze and fog machines, to heighten the effect
of the lights, revealing the beams, whilst creating a truly fantastic
atmosphere. Our haze effect creates a subtle mistiness in the atmosphere,
whereas our vertical fogger creates a more dense cloud, shooting up to 3
metres into the air in a dramatic burst. A further option is a low level
fogger, similar to dry ice, which cloaks the floor in a mystical layer,
and creates the illusion of walking through clouds. This is particularly
popular for weddings, and for Halloween and Christmas parties.
The output from all of these devices is totally harmless, using water and
non-carbon based fluids. It is not akin to smoke in any way other than the
look, so if used responsibly will have no affect on smoke or fire-alarms,
cause no breathing problems, or leave any discernible residue. Their use,
however, is dependent upon agreement with the venue’s management (where
To create an authentic 60’s and early 70’s psychedelic atmosphere, nothing
can beat oil wheels and cassette projection. Using venerable Solar 250
projectors, which were amongst the fore-runners in this field and are
still manufactured today due to the unmatched excellence of their design,
wheels in either vivid or more subtle colours bring the walls or ceilings
of any house or hall alive with bubbles and artefacts. Although an old
effect, some of the more modern wheels are nothing like those seen in
their heyday and are truly energized and spectacular. Cassettes creating
swirly patterns can be projected over the top of the wheels to complete
the retro effect.

We also have other projection wheels which are more figurative, which can
create water, fire, clouds, zodiac, leaves or many other stage like
effects. We can also project gobos which feature logos, initials of
marrying couples or other messages such as “Happy Birthday”.
Further examples of Liquid and Kinetic lighting can be
found on our
In addition to those listed above, we can also supply other effects such
as mirror balls, flame lights, bubble machines, snow machines and confetti canons, where specific events dictate.
