Sound System, Wick St. Lawrence Harvest Home

Igoe PA hire provides a complete sound & lighting solution for live music entertainment at the annual Wick St. Lawrence Harvest Home. 

The Harvest home is a get together of local people involved in the agriculture industry. They hold a yearly event with a posh lunch served in a huge marquee followed by an evening of live music. This year featured two excellent covers bands, Abba Gold and Re-Offender.

Marquee 

This event was engineered by Ben & Alex.

Diary 11/08/07

We were required to provide a complete sound and lighting service. We knew the rig needed to have plenty of grunt as the event is attended by around 500 people.

It was a challenging set up as the day time speeches over ran – we only had about two and a half hours set up time !!

 PA System

We used eight blue full range 12″ cabs to ensure plenty of mid & top detail; two of our new HZ double 15″ 2k sub woofers & a pair of 18″ cabs for sub 100 hz power. This lot where powered by 4 x CS4000 amps giving a total of 11 kW.

For monitors we supplied 4 x 350 watt stage wedges powered by 2 x PV 2600 amps.

In our control booth we had the Allen & Heath GL2400 and a comprehesive outboard rack. We also provided all mics, D.I. boxes, stands, cables & accessories.

Mixing Desk

For lighting we errected two bars of six par cans with dimmers on T-bar powerdrive stands. We controlled all the lights from our DMX lighting desk.

The gig was a great success all the bands were fantastic, Abba gold ! indistinguishable from the real thing the best Abba covers band we have seen.

Abba Gold

Re-offender rocked it as headliners with some very well done covers of British & American pop rock, Killers, Kaisers, Arctic’s etc. Apparently the band are great song writers themselves but we didn’t get to hear any of their own work.

Re-offender

We would recomend either of these bands for weddings, functions, parties etc.  

The crowd went totally wild, a little too wild at times with some spontaneous wrestling moves and people generally flying about !

The sound was great – We did a good job so hopefully they’ll have us back next year.
