Comments from Recent Events

I hired a PA for a film screening, the night was a success, mainly due to the excellent sound, which is 90% of what you "see" on screen. The guys from Syd PA Hire installed, sound checked/ EQ'ed for the room and packed up afterwards, no muss, no fuss. I definitely recommend them.
William,  Australian Weekend Television, Film Screening, Paddingtong, December 2014

Sydney PA Hire provided a high quality PA system for an open day we organised. I found Lee to be courteous and professional by turning up promptly, setting up cleanly and having up to date test tags on all of his equipment. What impressed me most was the modern set up used and how easily Lee controlled the sound, which made all the difference in enabling us to put on a good show. Thanks!
Paul Sarno, Organiser Corporate Open Day, Fairfield, December, 2014

Thanks friends from Sydney Pa Hyre for the commitment you guys showed while working with Chaparrall. Always on time, with a big smile. That was remarkable! We also loved the fact that your equipament is new and full funcional. We know we can trust your work and be sure, we are going to indicate you to our friends and we wish to work together soon!.
Gui Cattoni from Chaparrall Band - Brazil, Australian Tour, November 2014

I was delighted with Sydney PA Hire.  The system setup on the afternoon of our function worked perfectly. Pick up after function ended was convenient.  The hire price was very reasonable.  Will book Sydney PA Hire for all future events.
Margaret McCauley, Friends of the Mater Foundation, Function, Mosman, November 2014

Sydney PA provided sound for both the ceremony and reception of my wedding last Saturday. Our sound engineer was David Carter & his wife Elsie. Every aspect of the day was covered before the day and David's assistance with planning towards every detail was incredible.   He provided quality advice on speaker arrangement, music format and use of the mixer at home and he was on hand throughout our ceremony offering help at any needed stage.  David had a wealth of knowledge but what impressed me highly was the service and little extras to make the day as special as it was.   I couldn't recommend Sydney PA Hire more highly.
Todd, Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Rouse Hill & Glenwood, January 2014

I recently used the services of Sydney PA Hire at our Zone Cross Country Carnival.  Lee was very punctual, well organized and easy to work with throught the day!  He was very quick to adjust our microphones/speakers when necessary and even provided suitable background music!  I would highly recomment this company for your next school sports day/carnival!
Karen, XCountry Convener Sutherland Zone PSSA - Sports Carnival, May 2013

I had the perfect day! Thankyou!   You guys were fantastic!  I really appreciated the excellent communitcation extended to me.  I felt confident and comfortable that you had everything under control.  Your staff on the day were very helpful!
Julie - Outdoor wedding, Woolwich, April 2013

What an experience! Lee is a true reflection of someone who is passionate about what he does and how to run a business.   He couldn't do enough to us his polite friendly and professional manner made dealing with Sydney PA Hire an enjoyable experience.   His easy to use equipment and simple instructions  ensured we never incurred any issues for the duration of our 3 week court hearing.  Thank you Lee you're always a pleasure to work with. and I'll be sure to call upon the service of Sydney PA Hire when the need arises.
Melissa, Institute of Mediators & Arbitrators, Sydney, March 2013

We hired a PA system from Lee for our wedding recently and could not be more satisfied. From the very first enquiry we made by email, to meeting for a demonstration and to the wedding itself, Lee's service was just impeccable. The pricing represented fantastic value for money and after the outstanding attention we received from him, we were left feeling that we had got more than our monies worth! Thank you Lee- you undoubtedly have our recommendation!
Nat & Andy - Outdoor Wedding Ceremony, Springfields House, Dural, March 2013

I just want to say thank you for your help on the weekend for our wedding. Your mics made the bells and the singer sound so wonderful and i really appreciate everything you did to make it all come together. If anyone asks i will definitely be recommending you!
Fabia,  Outdoor Wedding Ceremony, Clarkes Point Reserve Woolwhich, December 2012


I would like to thank Sydney PA Hire for making our house party in Palm Beach a blazing success. You worked the space to absolute perfection.  Thankyou!
Thomas, Combined Party for 100 people, Palm Beach , November 2012

We had the pleasure of having Lee provide production for a recent gig at the Sydney Boat Show. We have been playing since 1987 and have experienced the good the bad and the ugly in production. Lee is in the excellent category. The Boat Show was an extremely demanding gig with a 500 metre load in (and out) including rocking docks, narrow stairs and large crowds. Lee kept his cool 100% - the sign of a true professional. The load in took at least an hour + of intense physical work yet as soon as it was done Lee went about arranging things and setting up equipment with excellent attention to detail and safety - including lights and smoke machine. When the PA went on Lee tuned it perfectly, provided us with great foldback and paid attention all night to keep it sounding great even when we were getting pretty carried away with the show!!!!! We are more than happy to recommend Lee to anyone who wants to find out how good production lifts a show from average to exceptional. Cheers Lee - there should be more like you!!  

The Purple Drippers, Band for Houseboat Party, Sydney Boat Show,  August 2012

I had a arranged for a birthday celebration at the Rose Bay RSL. Firstly, everything was done as per schedule. I was there for setup and was impressed with the detail and professionalism displayed. Lee conducted a thorough a sound check with the musicians before leaving. The musicians (who perform at least 4 nights a week) were very impressed with the quality of the PA system as well.

Geoff Tozer, 60th Birthday, Rose Bay , July 2012

We had 2 semi professional bands play at a venue with sound challenges and so decided we needed a PA guy with good gear. After doing some research on Dr Google we came up with Lee Wright's business - Sydney PA Hire - as their equipment looked good quality. So glad we booked Lee. He arrived in the late afternoon to make sure everything was set up properly and he stayed until we kicked out the last people at 2AM! He mixed the sound great and the bands both sounded FANTASTIC. In between sets we simply hooked up an IPOD to Lee's PA. No need for a DJ. The sound was just as good if not better. You get so much for your money. baffles, lighting, mics, fold backs, even a line in to record. Absolutely brilliant value and makes a good night awesome and totally professional.

Jason, 50th birthday, North Rocks, June 2012

Professional, polite, prompt with enough technical savy to get it right - that's Lee from Sydney PA Hire.  We used his quality sound system for our event at Taffa's Mitre 10 hardware store in West Ryde, and we were very happy with the result - I thoroughly recommend him to you.
Anthony, Taffa's Mitre 10
Hardware, "The Block Roadshow" , West Ryde, June 2012

Just wanted to say a huge thanks for your help in making my 21st a really successful and special event.

I will be recommending you to all my friends, especially as their 21st birthdays are fast approaching.

You had the cheapest price by far for a PA system & Data Projecter+Screen, which at first made me wary about the quality. Also, I had been discouraged by a few other PA Hire companies who were reluctant to install a data projector + screen in a small marquee, and then quoting me prices that were obviously unreasonable. However, once I had stumbled across Sydney PA Hire and spoke with you over the phone, I was instantly put at ease by your experience and can-do attitude - very refreshing.

And the customer service didn't stop there; you went above and beyond the call of duty to grab images of the marquee beforehand and ended up spending extra time crafting a clever structure to fix the projector in place. The set-up was user friendly, the sound quality top-notch and the visuals crisp and clear. Not only that, you were happy to wait for the guests to continue dancing past the designated event end time which was really nice and didn't go unnoticed. And you did all this with a smile! Thanks so much! Until next time.
Alex, 21st Birthday, Belmore, June 2012

Lee & guys, thanks for the great sound! You helped make it a really enjoyable night. We'll be giving you a call for sure for our next PA hire. Fantastic setup.

Ben - The Mortgage Choice (Australia) Band, Charity Fundraiser Burdekin Hotel, June 2012

In the past, we have attempted to set up the PA system ourselves and had everything picked up because it was so much cheaper to do it that way. However you guys had an extremely good price for your excellent services. Because the price was so low, I was initially sceptical, but it was perfect. The person arrived early, set up the PA system flawlessly and efficiently with the greatest level of customer service. You guys were so flexible as well, able to come and pick up the system an hour and a half earlier than planned. I was extremely happy with the services and would definitely use you again and recommend you to others! Thank you!
Michelle, Castle Hill

My fiancé and I struck gold when I googled PA Hire Sydney and got a hit, funnily enough, with "Sydney PA Hire".

 I run my own music and sound design production house in Singapore and my wife runs her own events business in Singapore so needless to say we were a little nervous about the production for our wedding as it can either elevate or destroy the ambience.

I was pleasantly surprised when I began dealing with Lee from Sydney PA Hire. He covered off every detail with precision, getting room layouts and even coming to meet us at the venue. He insisted we back up our music on CD as well as iPod and as it turned out it was our saving grace as I had put many hours of thought into the playlists and the iPod died in the second set !

We had a live performance halfway through the night which I was also nervous about in terms of production. Lee did a brilliant mix of this performance so much so that one guest asked me if the band was miming to a CD !

The brand new Bose system sounded amazing and looked streamlined in the room and also on the deck where the ceremony was conducted.

I would thoroughly recommend Lee and Sydney PA Hire for any event and will certainly utilise them again for any event I am involved in because I know that it is one thing I will not have to worry about on the night.
Ben Rosen, The Gunnery Studio. Wedding, The Quay Restaurant Circular Quay, April 2012

In previous years we've always struggled with PA yesterday was exceptional.  We're glad we had you there looking after the sound...it really made a tremendous difference.  Again our thanks...we know where to come when we next need top PA.
Ken Shadie, President, Brooklyn RSL, War Memorial Opening, April 2012

Didn't know you from a bar of soap, just picked you out of the google search engine.
So glad we did!  You were so professional, from your communication, your set-up, your easy relationship with the musos, your readiness to adjust and massage the mix, your efficiency in pulling everything down, to the brilliant sound you gave the band and singers. It was a pleasure to work with you, and we will definitely do it again.
Chris Mawson, Event organising team, Seaforth Christmas Carols, December 2011

Lee provided the total sound & lighting package for our band then mixed the performance as well, delivering one of the best on-stage sounds we've had.   He was flexible, helpful & thought ahead, offering suggestions to make the performance better.  We found him punctual, reliable & we'd use him again anytime.
Mark -The Rough Lemurs Band, Taronga Zoo Staff Pesentation Evening, October 2011

Lee offered a professional service at an event we held last year, creating a great music backdrop.
Georgia Bunn, Communications Manager, Norman Disney & Young

On behlf of L.A.;s Tavern & Rock Chic Entertainment we have been very happy with the sound Lee has provided to us.  The bands have also provided positive feedback on the sound quality.  We certainly recommend Lee.
Mark (Licensee) L.A.'s Tavern, Band Competition, St Marys, August 2011

I have used Sydney PA Hire for a number of events & have always found the service to be excellent & professional.  It is always a pleasure working with Lee.
Lisa Tran, Event Manager, Wedding, Sydney.


Josh did a great job.  Would highly recommend Sydney PA Hire.
Lindsay & Rob (Bride & Groom), Wedding Reception, Milsons Pt.

I have been a wedding celebrant for over four decades and have officiated at well over two thousand weddings. I have had contact with different musicians, video companies, amplifier systems  and the like. It was at a recent wedding that I officiated at in Clark Park, Lavender Bay that I came across a superb PA  system which gave great justice and feeling to the wedding. In fact when speaking to the guests afterwards many commented on just how professional it was and how it blended in perfectly with the wedding itself. I spoke at length with Lee Wright who managed the system to ask for cards so that I could give his details to clients that I was working with.


I could truly recommend him to any couple who are looking for a PA system that offers a high form of professionalism. Added to that he was very generous with the time and effort he put into the afternoon.
John Hill (Civil Marriage Celebrant ), Wedding Ceremony Clark Park, North Sydney, February 2011

Lee provided a PA system for our corporate function for 150 people.   The PA worked perfectly & was easy to use.  Lee was easy to deal with & punctual for delivery & removal times.   I would use this service again without hesitation.
Tom (Production Manager), Corporate Function, West Ryde, February 2011

Thank you very much for doing a great job Lee, we were very pleased & many guests at the back of the room told me that the sound was excellent.  We will definitely ask you next year.
Mary (Event Co-ordinator), Windcraft Pty Ltd, Corporate Dinner, Newport, February 2011
