Sound Equipment Hire, Bath

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

Igoe & co provide a pa sound system with mics, mixing desk & multi-core for a Spanish style street party outside “La Flamenca” restaurant in Bath.

Diary 23/09/07

We supplied two Fane colossus towers powered by a cs4000 and a Allen & Heath desk.

The client wanted to be able to play cd’s and also be able to have karaoke style performances on a small stage they had put up in the street.

We rigged up all the kit on the sunday morning. I think this could have been a very popular street party but, you guessed it, this one was badly rained off.

It was no fun pulling up the 50 meter multi-core that we had gaffered firmly to the pavement in the pouring rain.

Better luck next year.

Lighting Hire

Igoe PA Hire provides lighting for a company event at the Bath & West show ground featuring the Phil Dando big band.

We where required to provide 8 x 300 watt par cans with colour gels, 4 x NJD datamoons a DMX controller and engineer.

This event was engineered by Ben.

I set up our equipment in the marquee and found that the only place for me to sit was actually on stage with the band – this was a bit of a novelty. I made sure to put on a great light show throughout the evening’s performance.

Phil Dando & co are a top draw Welsh big band outfit. I was genuinely bowled over by outstanding vocalists and an accomplished performance from the 20+ players in the line up. It felt like an honour to share the stage with them.
