Big budget impact, for small budget price

Whether you are running a local festival, a concert, a talent show, your school play, or a conference, you want it to sound and look as good as possible. You want people who come to your event to remember the acts or the presenters, not the creaky sound system and how hard it was to hear what was going on. In short, whatever the size of your production you need professional background support.

But 'professional' does not have to mean 'expensive'. With a small crew and careful planning we can provide a solution that works for almost any small to medium sized event that will fit within your budget.

Simple or Complex Events

From a single announcer with a microphone to an orchestra performing live in front of a room full of dancers, we provide an ideal solution for local music festivals and live events.

We regularly work with multiple different groups and singers throughout the day, so whether you have a single band with support act, or a string of different performances throughout the day, we have you covered.

Our DJ can provide background music between acts or cover the whole event as required. We regularly run dance events (as Tangosynthesis), and broadcast a radio show and podcast (as Jivebeat Radio) so we have a range of music to suit different types of event.
