This is my favourite band to engineer. These guys bring together superb musicianship and a great sense of humour. The MOKG are a wonder to behold peddling their unique brand of upbeat, cabaret klezmer.

The band were as tight as I have seen them – I could listen to these guys all night. The energy they put in to the performance is spectacular I know they are always exhasted by the end. Good show !!

We set up a 3.2 k rig with two 18″ subs and four 12″ full range cabs. We wanted to ensure plenty of midrange to make the most of the flute / clarinet / accordian front line and enough grunt to cater for the captivating bass grooves luring people to the dance floor.

All four galaxy hotspots where in attendance for monitoring along with two floor wedges. We also included a bar of 6 par cans with gels and a lighting desk.

The cavernous space within this excellent venue didn’t lend it’s self too well to amplified sound with certain frequencies resonating throughout the building. We manged to pull off a great sound in the end – thanks goodness for ART EQ

    Hi there,

    I am planning a wedding at the moment and believe it or not I want that band and that venue.

    How much did all this cost the client? Or rather how much would it cost now?

    Thanks for your help
