Diary 08/09/07

This event was engineered by Ben & Nick

The setting for this party was gorgeous. It was in a clearing within dense forest somewhere in the Wye valley. Nick & I mistakenly pulled into two different fields on the way containing marquees thinking we had arrived only to be met with blank faces. It seemed that everyone in this area was having a party on this rare sunny day. Eventually we arrived. The marquee was beautifully dressed so we carefully went about setting up.


The front of house pa comprised two double 15″ (1000 Watt Eminence Kilomax) HZ subs , two double 15″ towers (600 Watt Fane Colossus 15b600) / 1″ Compresion Driver (Fane CD150) powered by two Peavey CS4000 Amps. This totaled 6.7 kW of power!

Monitoring was achieved through two 350 watt wedges.

We used an Allen & Heath GL2400 desk with ART EQ and DBX comp / Furman Gate & Lexicon effects.

The lighting rig was two future light DMX scanners, a Martin Atomic 3000 strobe, HazerMKII, NJD Datamoons and VRX gladiators. This lot where all controlled via our Martin Freakie lighting console.

We also supplied two CDJ1000 MKIII decks, a pioneer DJM600 mixer and a pair of Technics MK5.

The hog roast was amazing – Nick and I feasted on this with glee. There was a lot of serious drinking going on, not least by the band who did manage to play ok. There repertoire was made up of rock and brit pop anthems through the ages.


After the band we cleared the tables to make way for the disco which rocked. The lights and smoke machine did the job and transformed the tent into a wonderland. All the kids loved it. We hope to work with these guys again – they know how to party.
