A Sample of Recent Events & Hires
Event: Athol Hall Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Mosman, September 2012
Details: Back at Athol Hall again. For this wedding they wanted music outdoors for the ceremony & for canapes after so we set up a sub speaker & main speaker out on the verandah. Later we moved these back indoors for the reception. We supplied 2 x Bose 802 speakers, 2 Bose MB4 subs, amplifier & mixer. The bride & groom programmed everything into their iPad & just gave it to me to play which worked really well. Here's a gallery of pics too.
Event: 50th birthday, West Ryde, September 2012
Details: Last Saturday was the 50th birthday of Steve, bass player from the Neveready band. The weather was great & everyone enjoyed the live music. It was good to see quite a few take to the stage & contribute something special. As for the song of the night, It would have to be close between Zepplin's "Whole Lotta Love", the Kiss classic "I Was Made For Loving You" & Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" including some pretty cool Harmonica.Hope you had a great birthday Steve!
Details:Back for the Taronga Zoo staff presentations this year. It was held in the Harbourview Ballroom which was a great room. About 300 attended & were entertained again by The Rough Lemurs band.
Event: The Rally of the Bay, Batemans Bay, September 2012
Details: The Rally of the Bay was great. I've never been there before but it's very cool place. Both the family & I had a good time there. It was a big day with 3 different venues & no mains power.
Event: Letters to Home EP Launch, Cat & Fiddle Hotel, Balmain, June 2012
Details: There was a good turn out. Thanks to David from Econosound for supplying the EV ZXA1 speakers. We used 2 for mains + 3 for foldback. These little 8 inch boxes are rated to an amazing 800 watts (not that it was needed for this event). All the bands played well & were well received by the crowd. Great work guys & girls!
Event: 50th birthday, North Rocks, June 2012
Details: The party included 2 rock bands. Being a small brick room this was going to be a challenge. We brought along some acoustic baffles to place behind the drums. The organiser also brought a large carpet which helped greatly too. The results were actually better than I thought & the customer was very happy. See his comment here. We supplied "System 3" with EV SX80's as foldback.One of the band members has already booked us for their 50th also. Here's a video. Just to be fair to the Mighty Heroes, they had a somewhat wasted patron "helping" them out on vocals for Honky Tonk Woman. When I turn 50 I hope I've got the same energy as these party goers - they just kept dancing till about 2AM.
Event: TAFE Graduation Ceremony, Granville, June 2012

Event:Bob Dylan AustralianTour (Equipment Sub Hire Only) , April 2011
Details: Now this has to go into the "crazy but true" basket. It seems they needed a 1980's Yamaha digital reverb (the SPX90) and I had one of the few of these available for hire in Sydney. What an honor to supply gear to one of the great musical legends.

Event: ALP Fundraiser Dinner, March 2011, Parramatta
Persons: Approx. 200
Details: The venue was the Tingah Palace restaurant inside the Parramatta Leagues club. It was clear that it was going to be a challenge to cover such a large restaurant of vocal, enthusiastic diners with limited speaker placement options & several tables obscured by glass partitions. In the end 3 x Bose 302A speakers & 1 MB4 sub speaker were used.The two end speakers were arrayed towards the obscured tables. The venue owner was skeptical that these compact speakers would be adequate but it turned out there was more than enough volume & clarity to overcome the high background noise. The extra height speaker stands meant that guests sitting underneath were not blasted with sound whilst those in the far corners still had plenty of level. Ex premier Bob Carr was guest speaker.
Event: Corporate Function, March 2011, West Ryde
Persons: Approx. 120
Details: Marquee event including trivia & background music. Supplied 2 x Bose 302A's, 1 MB4 sub, 1 amplifier, mixer & radio mic.

Persons: Approx. 120
Details: DJ & duet. Supplied 2 x Bose 302A speakers, 1 x MB12 sub speaker, 2 x Bose amplifiers, mixer & folback. This venue presented some problems. Being outdoors there was a lot of sound dissapation. The very long & curved area where guests were congregated made it a long throw partly blocked by one of the structures. The 700 watt system had to run at full power. In the end the system was adequate & the organisers were happy.
Event: Jervis Bay Christian School New Facilities Opening Ceremony, October 2010
Persons: Approx. 150
Details: Semi-outdoor rock concert & opening ceremony. After the ceremony guests rocked away to the sounds of Rolling Stones, Van Morrison & Creedence. While pushed hard the system was loud & clear. The MB12 sub really showed what it could do producing powerful clean bass & drums.
