We don't want to offend the neighbours. Some authorities impose decibel limits or agree times when noise must not be created. We are always pleased to keep to the rules and run a considerate event.

I don't need or want to bring any pre recorded music
Do you need a Front of House sound mixing position?
This is standard with Truck Gold and Bus Gold. Otherwise we will mix from an iPad using stage wifi systems standing in the crowd. This is a great way to make sure that the engineer can experience exactly what the audience is hearing from several different places.
