We know dance

As regular organisers of our own Argentine tango, neotango, and modern jive evenings, we know that dance events can often provide a unique set of challenges when setting up a sound system. Live bands for dance music may have an unusual configuration, equipment positioning has to take a back seat to the quality and accessibility of the dance floor, and local restrictions can make the ideal set-up difficult to achieve.

With years of experience in sound and lighting for dance events, we can help you find the perfect match between sound quality and budget.

Quality over Quantity

We know how discerning dance audiences can be, especially in communities such as the tango world who want to hear music that sounds exactly as it was originally recorded without any additional colour or processing added by modern sound systems. So why get your sound systems from a generic provider, when instead you can work with someone who understands the requirements of these unique events?

We will set up a system that focuses on sound quality without compromising on the dance experience for your customers. Lighting can be subtle and ambient, or full-on rock-concert, whichever works best for your event.
