PA Sound System & Lighting Hire

Igoe Pa hire provides a 5 kW sound system with a spectacular stage / disco lighting rig for a top notch Halloween party held in one of the units at the Paintworks development, on Bath road, Bristol.

Diary 27/10/07

This was a superb party. The large unit was completely decked out in mock cobwebs, hanging skeletons, spiders, flying witches, etc. It was quite a horror show with life size devilish characters hanging from the rafters.

The band was the magnificent “Madness of King George” who are quite briliant playing funked up traditional eastern European Klezmer tunes with some covers thrown in (in a Klezmer style!) They came dressed as a crew of macabre cabaret performers, they were the perfect choice.

For front of house sound we supplied four custom spec. full range 500 watt cabs and two HZ double 15″ sub woofers. Powering these we had three of our CS4000 amps which chuck out 800 watts per side at 8 ohms.

In addition we provided four monitor wedges powered with Crown XTi amps.

At our front of house mixing position we had our Allen & Heath GL2400 a rack of BSS / DBX / ART outboard and two seperate lighting desks.

For disco lighting we errected a truss and hung two future light scanners, four NJD datamoons, two VRX barrel scans and positioned several UV cannons around the room. To light the band we fixed 8 parcans onto the truss with gels. We also supplied a DMX fog machine and a powerful strobe light effect. All of the lighting was linked up and controlled using a pair of DMX desks.

After the band finished we cranked up the rig and mixed up some good ole party tunes into the wee small hours.

This was a night to remeber. Surely the best private Halloween party you could imagine. Attention to detail, good themed food, a top venue, plenty of friendly guests and not forgetting to mention, quality sound and light.
