Introduction

With passion for music and being an expert in Indie and Alternative (including rock, dance & hip hop variants) music is our main focus, giving us an individualistic edge. You and the music you want is our main focus, We can do pop too if you wish.

We feel sound quality is part of the experience of listening to music. So to compliment the music by making sure every week point over our systems are shored up opting for lossless audio WAVs over compressed MP3s (where available), whilst using professional grade audio equipment & sound expertise to push towards the best sound quality we can get out of the setups and PA we use.

We push for all elements of Djing, particularly when it comes to the music and style. For us we believe making the effort in lighting and sound makes all the difference, making sure our setups are some of the most stylish is really important, and one part of the over all experience to your event.

You have to park on a Car park for a small shopping complex, it is plausible to get quite close to the venue however the general public and constant shoppers being around is unnerving.

Parking on the street seemed easier than the car park.


Access

Nothing too strenuous but It wasnt the easiest Ive ever done


Facilities

The area is just big enough to get a typical 4 ft stand and speakers, youll be in whole world of hurt if youse a 6ft (2m) like me though. Drum Kit left on Stage with banister around it Wasnt ideal. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Now this is what really upset me about the venue, before Pack up I would have rated as typical, but Im afraid his attitude to packing up left little to be desired. It took us 30mins to pack up (which as many would agree is about right) however with in 15mins He Blacked out the room and disappeared, before hand he was complaining about how long it was taking. Having Blacked out the room my roady had started to have an asthma attack under the pressure of packing up. This attitude is disgusting.

Staff
